Normal? Nothing is normal with MS. Not trying to be a smartazz, but its the truth.
My neuro said I could have my next relaps in 2 days, 2 weeks, or 20 years!!!
What can you do? Stick right beside your neuro, be proactive, and read/learn as much as you can...
Mostly, try to focus your attention on something else you love to do and do it. I know its easier said than done, but you have to not "freak out" but rather take it one day at a time, and make the best of it.
Pay attention to what you put in your body as well. I am a believer in a proper MS diet. Not one in particular, but a good gluten free diet with vitamins and minerals...
BTW... I try to stay gluten free. I cant, but I try to pay attention and limit my gluten intake. Beer is my downfall!
