What is a relapse?

An MS relapse is when you experience new symptoms or a worsening of current symptoms. A relapse can also be called a flare-up or exacerbation.

You may be having a relapse if your symptoms:

  • Last for at least 24 hours
  • Appear at least 30 days after your last relapse

It’s important to know relapses can be different from others you may have experienced. They can be mild or severe, and may last anywhere from a couple of days to months.
