Thank you so much for your replies.
I forgot to mention: My sister and me both take fish oil/omega 3 with vitamin E and also some B vitamins. We should think at least about additional vitamin D, I suppose... There is a lot of information about supplements in this forum I realised... But she really eats healthy (especially compared to me during the last weeks
We do not live in the same city, so we have different neuros. Her neuro said he is not sure if her case is "serious enough" for tysabri. After all her flares last year and this year her right foot is completely numb, without any feelings. Serious enough? I don't know. The neuro also said he is a bit helpless and not sure. So she is going to see some doctors in hospital specialised for MS to get another opinion. He favors Copaxone I think.
Her stress level - yes, we also thought that could make the difference. I'm working on my phd that is stressfull enough, but maybe I have another way of coping? She puts herself under pressure, more than I do, I think. Oh, another difference: I visited a psychotherapist for more than one year after my diagnosis because my friends were overextended with my tears and anger and fear... She didn't want.
We also thought about anti-stress-stuff. She liked very much the osteopathy treatment she had a few times so maybe she should do that again. Unfortunately that's expensive. She is going to be trainee lawyer (which means not very much money) but hopefully I will earn more from april when I got my phd (as a phd student I get only half of a regular salary). Then I'm going to pay that. But some meditation or relax techniques could be useful. What do you recommend? I tried progressive muscle relaxation in the past, was okay I think but unfortunately I stopped practising (I'm lazy)...
The more I think about her obviously bored and aggressive immune system (allergy - flare - allergy -flare) the more I like the idea of Copaxone. But 6 months until full effectiveness is quiet a long time...
Thank you again,
