Relapses

  • By olissa

    Could someone explain Relapses to me? I tell my doctors of all my symptoms but she just suggest taking it easier or can change Medicine. I am on Capaxon now and not sure what to do. Thanks for any help you can give.

    olissa,
    I have included a link that explains what an MS relapse consists of: https://multiplesclerosis.net/what-is-ms/relapse/
    It stated in the link, “To be considered a relapse, the new symptoms or worsening of symptoms must persist for at least 24 hours and it must have been at least 30 days since your previous relapse.”

    This is something that my neurologist has also explained to me as well. I have started to keep a “journal” to help document changes, etc. and how long that they last.
    I hope this helps.

    Best,
