Types of MS
This type occurs in about 10% of people living with multiple sclerosis. Typically, people living with primary-progressive MS experience a slow but steady worsening of the disease from its onset, with no distinct periods of relapse or remission.
Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS)
Approximately 85% of people with multiple sclerosis are diagnosed with this type. In RRMS, people have clearly defined periods that alternate between remission and relapse.
This type is also characterized by a steady worsening of the disease. Unlike people living with primary-progressive MS, people living with progressive-relapsing MS typically experience acute periods of relapse from which they may or may not recover.
Secondary-Progressive MS (SPMS)
Another type of multiple sclerosis is secondary-progressive MS (SPMS). Some people, following an initial period with relapsing MS, may develop this type in which symptoms and disability get progressively worse. It is less common to have periods of remission/relapse here.
What is MS?
The cause of MS is still unknown – scientists believe the disease is triggered by as-yet-unidentified environmental factor in a person who is genetically predisposed to respond. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
