Begonia -- Welcome to This Is MS. We understand the turmoil of your daughters MS diagnosis. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers and kind wishes for us -- we will take help from every source.
I encourage everyone with a new connection to this disease to read, to study, to educate themselves as much as possible about it.
It is well known that women frequently have an MS flareup a few months after giving birth so I was not surprised when you said,
My 29 year old daughter (who happens to be a new mother with a 11/2 year old beautiful son) was disagnosed with MS two months ago.
MS symptoms seem to actually improve DURING a pregnancy.
A proven cause has not yet been found; in my opinion, there is no effective treatment either. Some people have found diet (especially low-carb diet) and exercise to be the most helpful
All the best with this challenge.
