MS Progressive Types: Secondary Progressive
Secondary Progressive MS is the advanced course ofRelapsing/Remitting MS.I recently talked about the different types of MS. Now I am looking at the characteristics of Progressive MS. As this series continues, I will discuss research and clinicaltrials, medications, "a day in the life," and other topics relating to the progressive types of MS.
First, Let's take a quick look at what it means to have Progressive or Chronic Progressive MS. Most MSers have Relapsing/Remitting MS (RRMS), so that is the type most people are likely to know a little about. Because the majority of MSers have RRMS, most information, including online articles and blogs, talks about RRMS. If a type is not specified, it is probably about RRMS. However, that leaves a void where Progressive MS is concerned. Because there is little information, many people do not know about Progressive MS, and that includes MSers.
