what is classed as a relapse?

I have received a form from the dvla asking about my relapse’s but i am a little unsure as to what a relapse actually is i keep getting different responses to the question? Is it something that shouldn’t be happening e.g not wanted to get out of bed, loosing the use of my arm and legs, loss of eye sight ect??

Hi @jill51

“The official international definition of a relapse is a period in which a person with MS experiences an acute worsening of function that lasts for at least 24 hours”

Taken from

I regularly don’t want to get out of bed, but I’ve stopped blaming my MS 😉
