    1. If we can determine/diagnose MS sooner based on symptoms perhaps earlier treatment would slow progression enough that exacerbations don’t cause unrepairable damage.

      What’s Canada’s weather like? Is it sunny often? Vitamin D (which can be gained from the suns rays) is important for MS —wondering if people don’t get enough of it there?!?!?!?!?!?!?

      1. It depends on what part of Canada – parts of Ontario are just like what I have here in Southeast Michigan and other parts like British Columbia are much more temperate, almost like California. I have a few bloggers I follow who are from Vancouver, British Columbia. One is a schoolteacher (Grade 1) and an avid runner. She told me recently that they get rain at least 200+ days a year!

        My friend lives in Honeyoe Falls, New York, a rural town near Rochester, and she told me that area is considered one of the least sunny parts of the United States and it is necessary to take Vitamin D supplement to ensure they get enough Vitamin D for their bones.

      2. Hmmm—- I wonder if that’s a big part of the issue. The sun ☀️ is good for periods of time each day.
        It would be hard to live with upwards of 200 days of rain each year. I think I might get depressed.
