Re: How many relapses since diagnosis?

It's wonderful to hear you're doing pretty well! I was dx'd in 2011 and would say average 2 relapses a year, though might be more than that.

Even for me, I have had a few relapses now and every time it has been different. The first confirmed relapse I had gave me numbness on the right side of my b...
