Multiple Sclerosis Stages and Progression Directory
There are four main types of multiple sclerosis: relapsing-remitting, primary-progressive, secondary-progressive, and progressive-relapsing. MS is characterized by exacerbations that may cause vision problems, walking problems, and other physical difficulties. MS in remission means that the person may still have symptoms but has returned to the "normal" state they were in before an exacerbation. MS treatments can help slow MS progression and control many symptoms.
