Hi Dr Mom
make sure they make an effort to check you for and consider the possibility of gluten ataxia.
It can look exactly like MS but is in fact a gluten disease. I am sure you know, if you are well versed in celiac, that dermatitis herpetiformis is really the same disease but it attacks the skin (my daughter has that) and gluten ataxia is a deal where the antibodies for the gluten attack the brain and cause the same symptoms as MS.
Because of my daughter I looked into this thoroughly at one point so that's how I am here offering this.
There are some people who make the claim that MS is a gluten disease too, independant of gluten ataxia, but the antibodies for that are not there and I know people who've tried to arrest their MS by eating a gluten free diet only to find it is not effective. OTOH, a gluten free diet is difficult to do well without commitment as I am sure you understand at this point!
The website for the gluten /ms information is msdirect.org.
Welcome! I hope as you work your way through diagnosis you are OK!.
