Avatar f tn A significant number of people with Relapsing/remitting MS move on to Secondary progressive MS. In secondary progressive MS there are less likely to be relapses. There is a steady advancing of the disease. In my case, thankfully, the advancing is taking its sweet time :-) The other 2 types of MS are progressive relapsing and primary progressive. These are distinct types of MS. They occur less frequently and tend to be more severe.
Avatar f tn Okay MS 101. There are two things going on one is inflammation. When the inflammation dies down or goes away so do the MS symptoms. The second is nerve damage. Where you have nerve damage those symptoms are with you for good. So with relapsing remitting you have attacks based on inflammation. If your symptoms stay that is nerve damage. You can have both and still have relapsing remitting MS. The trick is that sometimes inflammation can stay for months or years.
Avatar f tn Relapsing Remitting diagram Some people with Relapsing Remitting MS have a type of MS which is known as rapidly evolving severe relapsing-remitting MS (RES). This can also be known as highly active RRMS. This is defined by having two or more disabling relapses in one year and disease activity shown up on an MRI scan.

993844 tn?1249686537 Hi Mark, Relapsing Remitting MS will usually go into Secondary Progressive MS, from what I understand, as we get older (like 20 years or so after MS begins in our bodies). Primary Progressive MS is viewed as an entirely different form of MS and is even thought to be perhaps a different disease. When I was first at my MS neuro's waiting room a very pleasant man about your age in a motorized wheelchar in troduced himself to me and asked what I was there for..
Avatar n tn Relapsing-remitting MS refers to the symptoms coming and going - they're there one day, and gone the next. Personally I've never felt normal since 2006, but I have had days when I felt almost normal.
Avatar f tn But yes, even though there are people diagnosed with MS, they CAN and DO have symptoms that are not caused by their MS, but mimic MS symptoms. If that sounds is, but it's the best way I can describe it. It's always dangerous to blame everything that happens to us on MS. You could have another disorder that overlaps into MS symptoms. I am sorry that I cannot be more clear cut.
1896537 tn?1381900009 The name says it all ........... Relapsing and Remitting,. It sounds like your MS is remitting right now but there is no guarantee that it will stay that way and the next relapse could happen next month, next year or next decade. Do you really want to take the gamble and ignore the diagnosis until it acts up again? Besides, it has affected your vision so it's a little hard to pretend that everything is ok, right? Hang in there - do what you think is best for you and your future.
Avatar m tn This can result in symptoms ranging from mild numbness to blindness or complete paralysis. In the relapsing-remitting form of MS, these attacks can last from a few days to several months. The flare-ups are followed by periods of remission where there is a lessening of disease activity. More than 400,000 people have been diagnosed with MS in the United States, and more than 1.2 million worldwide.
1276940 tn?1564515084 s also one of the autoimmune conditions that can cause some similar symptoms and can have a relapsing remitting symptom pattern like MS.....honestly, you might find connecting with people with Sjogren's to be more reassuring and or more helpful in understanding whether or not what you've experienced is typical for Sjogren's. Sorry i couldn't be of more help......
Avatar f tn Perhaps you have had your MS incorrectly diagnosed which is of no fault to you. Treatments for relapsing-remitting MS are very ineffective for primary-progressive, secondary-progressive, and progressive-relapsive MS. There are technically 4 different types of MS and it is important to be correctly diagnosed based on your symptoms as to ensure that you recieve the specific medication type to help you with your symptoms.
Avatar f tn Hello all, I am in need of some guidance as a someone that I am very close to has MS. I am very worried that her MS will progress from relapsing-remitting MS to secondary progressive MS. She was diognosed at the age of 14 with relapsing-remitting MS and has been taking medication since with no signs of it worstening over time. I have searched for an answer on the internet but have not found the specific information,just stuff that freaks me out!!!
Avatar n tn How does my neurologists interpretation of my MRI scan indicating small vessel ischaemia square with the fact I am a 53 year old female, height 5ft 4 ins, weight 138lbs, who has never smoked, has never had high blood pressure and am not diabec. I am having real problems getting what I feel may be remitting\relapsing (not really remitting any longer) MS diagnosed. Any justification for the small vessel ischeamia diagnosis that you could imagine, given the above extra information on my health?
Avatar m tn Gilenya is prescribed for relapsing-remitting MS. From your limited description of current symptoms, with no historical perspective, I would guess your sister is secondary progressive. But it's only a guess. Perhaps that's why the four earlier treatments failed, because they are for relapsing-remitting. But we don't know if/how they really failed, how long each one was used, etc. And there is no specific drug called "Interferone" ...
1166523 tn?1264364643 OH and one thing she said that confused me is that she said MS symptoms usually do not present in the way mine are, in other words, they do not come on, last for s period of time, go away and come back. Everything I have read says that they do. Any one have any ideas on this one and what I might want to ask her about it?
Avatar f tn Relapsing Polychondritis, causes recurring episodes of inflammation of cartilage structures and other connective tissues, and could account for the different types of symptoms you experience along with the relapsing/remitting pattern.... You've also been dx with RLS which is a sensorimotor neurologically based disorder less commonly known as Willis-Ekbom Disease, it can be both a primary or a secondary issue due to a known medical condition, medical side effects etc etc.
