ETA: If it is another flare-up, does this mean that I could be classified as having progressive MS?? I've only been diagnosed for just a little over a month.
Your doctor will advise you as to MS type. You could go through several flare-ups and then go through a period of "normalcy". Although you have only been diagnosed for a month, it does not address the question of when you first got MS. I read of a woman who was only diagnosed with MS at the age of 70.

Whatever type of MS you have, your life is not over. My life deals with progressive MS. Please believe me when I say, you have nothing to fear.
