I am 47 and I was diagnosed with MS in 1985
My initial diagnosis was RRMS, I had optic neuritis in my right eye.
Now I have SPMS
I currently take Betaseron from 2005 and lots of vitamins
I have four sons, 26, 24, 19 & 17. I hope and pray they never get MS, but if they do, at least there are better treatments today.
I'm really happy I came across this site
All the best.

I'm a bit late, but welcome to the United Nations! I think you should not be too concerned about your sons: even in the unlikely event that one of them developed MS they would have many more options available to them than existed a few years ago, (a very long way from perfect, but at least there's something), and in the near future there will be many more treatments as well as better understanding of MS; earlier diagnosis; more widespread appreciation of lifestyle and dietary effects, and possibly even regeneration and repair.
I don't mean to sound unrealistically optimistic, but I believe the situation is much more promising now than it has ever been,
