    Hello Starburst29, I was given the same diagnosis and did not even realize it until my doctor gave me a sick leave slip for work and she had listed me as having Progressive Relapsing. Like you, I also got a bit scared when I saw that. My advise is to try not to let it get you down. Each case is different. It seems to mean when you relapse, you do not later go 100% into remission. But you may have few relapses or mild relapses. Don't count yourself down and out!!
