Hi laTrece

Testing by specialists can let you know this. Ask your doctor to begin this process and explain to you what's going on step by step as you go through it.

There are 4 different types of Multiple Sclerosis:

Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS)
Secondary-Progressive MS (SPMS)
Primary-Progressive MS (PPMS)
Progressive-Relapsing MS (PRMS)
