You seem to have a good medical team. Your symptoms COULD be MS or possibly something else. It is possible that your diagnosis 20 years ago was correct; MS often has periods of activity alternating with quiet periods. Optic neuritis is a common symptom of MS.
Although I have not found an expert who agrees with me, I suspect that excess insulin is involved in MS (it has already been linked to many other problems – high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's); I encourage you to ask one of your physicians for a "fasting blood insulin test" (The optimum insulin test result is 3 UU/ML or lower.). The test has been available since about 1960; it is one of the least expensive blood tests. Anything that raises a person's blood sugar (like refined flour, sugar, white potatoes, white rice, etc. – even the mucus in a sinus infection) causes the insulin level to rise, too. A person can have a normal blood sugar level test AND the insulin level can still be high.
All the best to you.
