Hi Dan,
Do you not have an MS Nurse?
She should be your first port of call. You need to know 100%
Your MS nurse will or should be in contact with your neuro doc!
If you are still unsure theres always your GP or practice nurse.
If you eat a good diet then you should be ok anyway. Treat your body like a temple! Trash the chips.Cut down on the fats. Learn to chill out more.

Although a lot of people with MS take vitimins of some kind, when I asked my nurses whether or not they honestly felt they would do any good, her answer was that if you are eating a healthyish, balanced diet then you should be getting all of the vitimins you need already. The only thing she did comment on was to take vit D so I now take this-as the levels my neuro told me to. If you do decide to take vitimins make sure that you check how many international units each capsule/ tablet etc is worth. Do not rely on the weight as this doesn’t tell you anything…x
