Yes: But check with neurologist to see what he recommends. Also Rule out the presence of Lyme Disease as cause of stage 2 neuromuscular disease

Prevention or Rx?: Ideally, someone diagnosed with MS has no lesions because they have responded well to treatment. The goal of treatment is to prevent attacks, and in a sense, to prevent lesions. It is not obvious that MS is the diagnosis if there are no lesions at the onset of the condition, however.

If no lesions found,: I seriously doubt you have MS, and would propose getting a second opinion.
