German term or phrase:Schub
in multiple sclerosis.
I have used "relapse" and "episode" in the past. What is the most common term nowadays?
Thanks in advance
Explanation: The 'going' term you are looking for is 'exacerbation'. (I have worked in clinical research for MS for 2 years). MS is most frequently characterized by exacerbations. An exacerbation is when one or more inflamed areas on the nerves manifest themselves in concrete physical disturbances. The most common clinical course in people with MS is called relapsing-remitting MS. It is marked by the onset of an exacerbation, a sudden worsening of an MS symptom or symptoms, or the appearance of new symptoms, which lasts at least 24 hours and is separated from a previous exacerbation by at least one month. An exacerbation is also known as a relapse, an attack, or a flare. This info comes from a very reliable source: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/\Sourcebook-Exacerbation.as...
