One last piece of non-health related advice (with disclaimer that I'm not a lawyer, yada yada) is to document your doctors visits and any Dx/Rx. The paper trail could come in quite handy.
Thanks a lot, I appreciate that. Best of luck to you and your MS treatments. How long ago were you diagnosed? My best friend's mother has battled it for close to twenty years. She's an incredibly strong woman.
