No Doctor can tell you what the prognosis is - mild or not - only time can tell you that. I am not sure what your history is - but if time is a factor in what the Doctor has said than yes that is good news, (the longer the time between flair ups, greater recovery and peripheral symptoms all bode well for a milder course), yet there are silent symptoms that you may not be aware of until years of damage has occurred. It is important to get treatment no matter on what course you may be. Please seek medication out. If you want to bounce ideas off me, I am more than happy to respond.
