I went on a course for newly diagnosed ms patients and the dietician told us that we should eat normal healthy diet including all food groups and just to avoid anything we couldn’t tolerate. Obviously if we were wanting to shed a few pounds to eat less fat and increase veg etc but that was the best way to remain healthy.
My dx was also given with no finesse:
I think you have ms, we’ll do an MRI scan
No, you have a spinal cord injury, we’ll operate.
A year later: You haven’t improved, we’ll send you to a Neuro
No, it’s your cord injury, but we’ll do an LP
You have MS and it’s progressive, there’s no treatment.
Thank God I now have a lovely Neuro who listens, cares and tries to help symptom control at least!
