Inside out or outside in?

This is from an interesting blog about research.

Abstract

The envelope protein originating from the MSRV has been found in most patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

When do new symptoms from relapses usually occur?

Hi,
I am close to my doctor ruling out other conditions, as I will undergo LP later today. I was wondering if several of you could let me know your experience with relapses. Can you describe what it's like? When do new symptoms appear typically? Is it when you wake in the morning that you notice something new and weird, or can it appear anytime? Thanks for your input!
