Re: Family History
Kim, thinking of family situations/history can be overwhelming, especially when you're thinking of the future and children. I worried about heart disease, which runs in the males in our family (both sides). I ended up with MS, which is nowhere in my family.
While MS can be hereditary, it can also be extremely random. It may never affect your offspring.
Your children (if that's in your future) will be better off, and you'll be aware of the potential for MS, versus my situation where in my wildest dreams, I never suspected MS, wasn't something I was looking for, and probably went on undiagnosed longer than it should have.
