Hello All, my name is Wolf. I'm a 48 year old male and I was diagnosed in 2015 as having relapsing remitting MS. When I was diagnosed in 2015 my neurologist stated that I have had MS for many years but could not be anymore specific than that.
What I have learned so far, is that MS affects everyone differently and it may or may not progress, and when it does progress the disease may progress faster or it may progress slower than other people who have MS.
Here is my question to all of you who are reading this:

I'm not looking for a concrete answer to this, I don't even know if there is a concrete answer to this question. I'm just asking for your input and if you would share with me what you know about this disease and what your doctor's have told you.
