Relapsing remitting MS

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. Taking a disease modifying therapy (DMT) could mean fewer relapses and slow down your MS.

The relapsing remitting label can help to explain MS to others and help you to find the best treatments. But it can't predict exactly how MS will affect you.

For most people with MS, this is the way their MS begins, except for the small group of people who have primary progressive MS (about 15% of all people with MS).
