I have seen your my space. I love your horses. I have a horse too. I got him as a three year old and broke him myself. 8 months later we were showing. He was wonderful western pleasure horse and won lots of great prizes. Now he is my trail buddy. I have had him for nearly 18 years now.
The bad news about MS, there is no cure and for most of us it is progressive. It can progress slowly and for others it can move along and cause disability. There are just a handful of FDA treatments and those are all injections. Hopefully you don't have a fear of needles. Some decide against treatment as they aren't all that amazingly successful at putting the brakes on this disease. The treatments are also incredibly expensive. Without insurance the cost can be in the thousands each month, even with insurance it can be in the hundreds.
You will need to watch your diet, which I am sure you already do. You will need to stay fit, you look quite fit. Find a good neurologist you can work with and go from there.
Please ask any questions you may have. I know I may be jumping the gun, but you have those lesions. Your symptoms are so indicative and the fact that it can be a remicade induced problem. Anway, let me know how I can help.
