Progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) is a rare form of MS
that causes steady damage to nerves when symptoms first appear and continues to
cause progressive worsening.
Relapses (disease flare-ups) occur, followed by full or partial recovery, but
nerve damage continues and symptoms become increasingly disabling.
Symptoms of MS include:
Weakness, leg dragging, and
Blurred, foggy, or hazy vision.
pins-and-needles sensation, and numbness.
