Unlike patients with RRMS whose symptoms improve or resolve between episodes occurring months or years apart, patients with SPMS experience a fixed progression of physical and cognitive disabilities.

Resolving paresthesia in patients diagnosed with MS is indicative of RRMS.

Cognitive dysfunction that resolves with rest is not a symptom of MS.

The EDSS is a tool used to describe the severity of disability in patients with MS. An EDSS score of 1 indicates minimal disability and would not pertain to a patient who has SPMS.

Learn more about the clinical presentation of SPMS.
