Here is My Question:
Is SPMS worse than PPMS? I’m feeling I’m better off with PPMS because I have sudden things occur.
The general course of PPMS and SPMS are very similar and the rate of progressive disability are also similar. SPMS is different in that it is preceded by a relapsing-remitting course while PPMS does not. The individual’s experience with MS can vary.
