For me it’s a toss up between a couple of things. Firstly, I’d like to see some good research into diet. Partly this is to see if there are things that would help all of us. But the main thing I’m interested in is why do some people find certain things really help, such as cutting out gluten or dairy, but then for others it makes no difference - is there a way of knowing who benefit most from the different diets out there?
The other thing I’m interested in is how much influence our emotions, thoughts or personality types have on disease progression. I sometimes wonder if there’s a psychosomatic element to my MS. This could be a bit controversial, as it would be easy for people to blame themselves for getting MS and think it’s their fault, which I don’t think is true. But I know, for example, that many people say they had a very stressful experience before diagnosis, so it would be interesting to see if there are any common themes or traits.
