  1. I just submitted some comments about my journey with PRMS, but neglected to ask my question, so I’ll do that now. My questions are,Should I be taking rebiff if I can’t ‘feel’ or detect any relapses happening?
    Is it true that the purpose of Rebiff for me is to ward off another severe attack such as I experienced 12 years ago? And is there any way for me to recover at all from the damage that was done by that severe attack?
