It took me a couple of years to realise i had relapses after a flu, before I even knew it was MS. After over ten years, it has been my only trigger for one. I have also read it in medical articles that it is considered a risk for relapse. I would definitely put it in the fact pile with no dilution of "self fulfilling prophecy" or "coincidence". For me it is the only trigger for a relapse (apart from flagyl)Lyon wrote:There are people who have said that their only exacerbations have been brought on by the flu, which is probably a combination of fact, self fulfilling prophecy and out and out coincidence.
