Dear Maria,
I am not familiar with treatments available in India.  But worldwide the accepted treatment would be for you to have a disease modifying drug  - at present there are four standard ones - Copaxone, Rebif, Avonex, and Betaseron.  All of these are injections.
They may or may not help to slow the progrression of your disease.

There are new drugs beings worked with too - one is Tysabri, which is an intravenous drug that is given monthly.  You might ask about that.

We have some members here who got worse and would not walk, but now can walk.  This disease is very unpredictable how it will act.  Sometimes it will reverse itself with no reason.  I will hope that happens for you.

Do you see a neurologist for treatment?  

I hope you will come back here often and share more of your story when you feel like it.  We are a compassionate group with members from all over the world.  

my best,
