MS relapses can occur as often as a few times per year or as rarely as every 15 years. No one can predict the course of MS for a specific individual.

If you think you have reasons to suspect MS, you should discuss it with your PCP and get a referral to a neurologist. The live ones are generally much better than Dr. Google... :wink:

RRMS dx 3/3/11; Copaxone since 12/1/11

I believe it would be less frequent that 2 or 3 weeks... talk to a dr, as there are more symptoms than feeling bad.
