Not yet diagnosed, but almost there and very scared

I am 34 and have two young kids. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is like RA, and neuropathy in my feet, so I already have health problems. I went to the neurologist and she told me that in all likelihood I have MS, I just have to get an MRI to confirm it. I've actually had to put it off twice now, both times to be in the hospital for other things. I'm ...

However, during my trip I started to experience a little bit of discomfort in my sacrum. I've had a little twinge there for about two years. Nothing too serious.

So I thought it was related to that. ...

Funding for trials of non patent-able substances

Over the years, I have seen many many natural or other substances claimed to help or cure or reverse MS.

I've always been active and relatively healthy with diet and exercise. I'm not sure what my future holds. I have a very supportive and loving wife which I'm happy to have more than ever.
