I am curious, since there is no real beneficial diet for those diagnosed with MS, to see if anyone with MS has found that certain foods have helped with MS symptoms or had any positive impact on your sense of well being.
I am a spouse to someone with MS, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Great question! I am glad you are caring for your spouse! You sound like a wonderful person. Some time ago I read about it being beneficial to take fish oil and Vitamin D and to eat a diet rich in fish because of the fish oil. It was based off of some studies that states that fish oil and a diet rich in fish can help with inflammation, which in turn eases the intensity of relapses. I believe it said the Vitamin D helps lower the chance of relapse.
I therefore take supplementation of fish oil and Vitamin D and try to follow the Mediterranean diet. I eat as little as red meat as possible, as well as drink as little alcohol as it can have negative effect on our nervous system, which is ultimately what MS is deteriorating.

I heard chocolate is not good for MS. Has anyone else heard this and know if and why it is true?

@copa20 If I had to guess, I would pinpoint the answer to caffiene and sugar but I don't know for sure either.
