Does RRMS get worse? When you have relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), you usually have flare-ups — or relapses — which are periods when symptoms are new or tend to get worse. In between those flare-ups, things usually get better. At least of these cases, RRMS eventually will turn into secondary progressive MS (SPMS).
How do you know if you have RRMS or PPMS? Both PPMS and RRMS are caused by inflammation and immune system attacks on myelin and nerve fibers. RRMS tends to have more inflammation than PPMS. Those with PPMS have more scars and plaques, or lesions, on their spinal cords, while those with RRMS have more lesions on the brain.
