Lisa, I know there's a theory about pseudo relapses being real events. I'm not sure what that is though, since if they were inflammatory they'd be visible on MRI, perhaps all pseudo-relapses are real relapses they just can't be seen on 1.5 T MRI but would probably be visible on 7 T. My CIS presented with a number of very mild symptoms, all of which were sensory i.e. non-disabling. Because of a lack of abundant enhancing lesions on my MRI my neuro thought that some of the symptoms might not be a sign of actual neurologic damage, and may have had to do with anxiety of experiencing something going on and imagining/amplifying additional symptoms.
