I am not complaining because at this point what else can the DR do for me.
Maybe you could try a ketogenic diet? Here's a published case study where a SPMS patient showed benefit.

Re: High dose vitamin D exacerbates CNS autoimmunity

I thought that it was about blood concentration and not dosage.
In contrast, mice with 25-(OH) vitamin D levels above 200 nmol/l developed fulminant experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis with massive CNS infiltration of activated myeloid cells, Th1 and Th17 cells.

Yes, I know about Montel and Helius. He has tried manyyyy things for his MS. I'm not a fan of his.
I'm not a fan either. Some time ago he was in a series of ads on late night TV promoting a pay-day loan company. These companies are nothing more than legalized loan sharks.

Re: Worried and confusion regarding MRI results

Thanks for the response. I am speaking with my neurologist tomorrow. I have not been tested for a B12 deficiency. That is a good lead to follow. It makes a little more sense. It's best to have vitamin B12 between 500-1000 pg/mL. Here's a discussion topic focused on B12 that you may wish to read for...

They try to hide the presence of added sugar in the ingredients list by using forms such as "concentrated fruit juice" which euphemistically sound like a better option t...
