Question...

Obviously relapses don’t last for years, so at what point do symptoms of a relapse become classed as residual damage, after a few weeks? Months?
Even after being dx for years, still finding it hard getting my head around all the in's and out's of the minefield that is MS.

@Eastendgirl , MS is confusing, so don't feel alone in that aspect.

 

The following website may answer some of your questions, but sometimes it isn't black and white :-

 

 

WWW.MSSOCIETY.ORG.UK

In relapsing remitting MS (RRMS) people have attacks of new and old symptoms, this is called a relapse. Around 85% of people with multiple sclerosis are diagnosed with RRMS...

Thanks for the link @Stumbler I had already read the pages on the MS Society forum. It doesn't really answer the question, but I'm guessing it's because there isn't a definitive answer.  There seems to be more questions than answers with MS.

You're right, @Eastendgirl, MS has various shades of grey as not much is a definite black or white.

 

But, this is like life itself, full of the unpredictable. So, perhaps MS isn't so bad as far as uncertainty is concerned.......😕

 

So, what part of the East End. I'm Forest Gate born and bred.

That's next door to Walford, innit?

I don't regard myself as a genuine Eastender as I wasn't born within the sound of Bow Bells! No, that's a genuine cockney, innit? 🤣🤣🤣

Haha, Walthamstow isn't within the sound of bow bells either! I've now lived in Wales for longer than I ever lived in London.
