How long ago was he diagnosed and what were his symptoms when he was diagnosed?

He was diagnosed 6 years ago at the age of 24. I was pregnant with our second child and our DD was 7 months old. We had just moved. He was having numbness and tingling in his fingers and toes. We thought he pinched a nerve from the move. I made him go see a Dr after about a month. About a year before hand he started having blurry vision. He saw his eye Dr who said he had optical nerve damage and should have an MRI. He refused because his vision improved. That was his first symptom officially

They did blood work since his symptoms didn't go hand in hand with a hurt back. Blood work was off. So they did an MRI and found lesions on his brain and spinal cord

He has been lucky. His ms goes into remission. So he only has a few major attacks a year. But heat and cold can make simple tasks hard for him as it can enhance symptoms that he has on a regular basis. But yes it can be difficult especially since we have 4 children.
