- RRMS - Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis
- SPMS - Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
Most people diagnosed with RRMS eventually develop SPMS. This is charachterized by a progressive worsening of symptoms - which may or may not be accompanied by flare-ups. I have a feeling (what with my medical degree and all!) that i have developed SPMS. I have had no flare-ups since my first one - i lie! i had 2...2 years prior to my being diagnosed, my vision did something odd and no one could figure it out. that lasted some months as well and then things went back to normal. My walking has gotten progressively worse over time and again - no flare ups! I used to hope that the walking was a flare up but I've pretty much given up on that now.
I have a routine visit with my neuro next month and 1 of the questions for him will be whether or not i've developed SPMS (great! just *&^^* great!!!).
