Primary progressive multiple sclerosis is a form of MS in which the disease gets worse from the start. It occurs in a small number of people who have MS. People who have this type of MS may or may not have attacks (relapses).

There is no cure for MS. But there are medicines and other treatments that might slow its progression and treat symptoms.
