Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) is a type of MS that is characterized by periods of disease flare-ups (relapses) and periods of recovery (remissions). RRMS often develops into secondary-progressive MS (SPMS), which is characterized by a patient’s disability steadily worsening. In this video, Daniel Kantor, MD, FAAN, FANA, and Benjamin Greenberg, MD, MHS, address important topics in both MS subtypes, including uncontrollable and modifiable risk factors, and how psychological health plays a role in the progression of MS in patients.
