If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

relapse vs. progression?

Can somebody explain the difference? Once progression starts from a relapse does it ever stop or slow down?

I can't tell you. It's a chicken egg thing I think. I never really had a period of getting better once it started but they still classified me RRMS.

do original symptoms usually stay eventually? My last MRI in oct. showed no enhancement my neuro was happy about that but couldnt that be spms? my original symptoms that used to remit seem to be here to stay cause I do have more lesions then 3yrs ago which was my last MRI. Nothing is enhancing is that bad or good?

i have permanent damage (so far - 3yrs) from my dx attack and i am rrms (again, so far)!
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
