    • Hi Michelle,
      Welcome – loads of info, research & experiences on here.

      Re wondering if you’re second progressive – my own neurologist claims that we’re all a mix of the two. If you still gain some recovery from steroids then you still have relapsing/remitting in the mix.

      You can also start topics – my fellow mentor Ed explains ‘Posting Items’ at the top of each Forum.

      Cheers John

      • Hi Michelle,

        I’m catching up on my welcomes after a couple of days out of town. It’s nice to have you here and I hope you’ll join in on some of our discussions.

        About which category of MS you have, I agree with John that what it’s called really doesn’t make a difference (except to insurance companies when it comes to coverage for some treatments). But, put simply, RRMS describes having flares that come and go. Early on recovery from each flare may be total. As they continue, recovery may be less than 100%. Eventually, the flares become less frequent but the level of disability slowly increases. That’s considered the SPMS stage. If you have this steady decline from the very beginning with few, if any, flares that’s considered PPMS.
