Different Types of MS Directory

Relapsing-remitting, primary progressive, secondary progressive, and progressive-relapsing are types of multiple sclerosis. Each form has its own symptoms. When patients manifest clinically isolated syndrome, it is the first sign of demyelination, or loss of myelin. Myelin is the material that covers nerve cells. The MS type determines how severely it affects nerve damage. In addition, there are different symptoms for each gender. There are still more differences between child and adult versions of MS. Each person diagnosed with MS manifests it in a unique way.
