Bella – I also welcome you to ThisIsMS. Do not apologize for what you have posted. We are here to listen; most of us have been in your same position of frustration, fear, lack of knowledge of this disease. I had the same problem with proprioception when the doctor moved my toe up or down; I simply guessed, I figured I had a 50-50 chance of getting it right.
You will find that this group is sympathetic to your situation. Ask any of your questions, we will try to answer based on our experiences and our own unique ideas. I encourage you to read and learn as much as possible about MS. Start with a GP or internist who is willing to work with you, who is more of a "disease detective," and with whom you feel comfortable and trust. Ask him to begin with no preconceived ideas, establish a baseline with a thorough physical exam including blood tests for cortisol, glucose AND insulin, the thyroid hormones (TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Total T3, Reverse T3, and antithyroid antibodies), vitamins and mineral levels such as vitamin D3, vitamin B has NHE suggests, and others as jimmylegs will suggest to you.
Follow a healthy lifestyle and diet – this will benefit your entire family. There are many cases of dramatic improvement with diet and exercise, such as http://www.TerryWahls.org
Read the wealth of information on this website; I think there are many good things in the Diet forum here.
All the best to you, Bella.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
