diagnosis confusion?

Hello all, having recently been diagnosed with primary progressive MS, after an uphill fight of over a year to get a diagnosis, I wonder if anyone else on here has had a diagnosis blaming alcohol abuse for their MS. My latest clinic letter, after an MRI of my brain and spinal cord with dyes would seem to lay the blame there, saying my symptoms (spasticity & weakness in my legs) should hopefully improve if I maintain my current abstinence. I know its potentially an embarrassing subject to air in public but, would welcome information from anyone who has an insight from either experience or researched knowledge of PPMS.
