Hi everybody. I have been wondering about this since I got diagnosed with MS this past January, and everything I read about it is conflicting. So I was gonna ask you guys, do allot of people with MS have family members that also have it? I am the only one in my family that has MS. I just worry about my kids being more susceptible to developing MS later in life, or my siblings developing it.

Hi nik

I too am the only one. My boys are on 4,000 IU per day of vitamin D3. That was my neurologists suggestion.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

Thank you for the suggestion, Gretchen. I never thought of starting the kids on some vitamin D. I will definitely do that. I'm going to tell my brother and sister to as well. Thanks again.
