Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis

Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis is a form of MS in which attacks (relapses) come and go over time. An MS attack is a period of time when there are new MS symptoms. Symptoms usually go away (remit) after an attack. The disease doesn't get worse between attacks. Most people with MS have this type first. It may last for many years.

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