For me, one of the most confusing things about Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) was understanding if I was experiencing a relapse or not. No one tells you what a relapse is and isn’t, well no one told me that is, and I’m sure I’m not alone. How do you know if you might be experiencing a relapse? And at what point do you seek medical attention? When I was first diagnosed, I was only told that “if I experienced a relapse”, I had to let the neurologist know.
But what exactly was a relapse?
Is it when your symptoms come back?…That was my understanding of the definition of a relapse at the time.
A relapse is when I’m experiencing symptoms right?
There’s a bit more to it than that.
