This is very complex and cannot be fully addressed here in space allowed. We cannot predict when, or if, inactive MS might flare or progress. If you already have secondary progressive disease, it will continue in absence of approved medications, which may or may not be useful. Even so-called "benign MS" is not necessarily quiescent over time. Recommend serial MRI's.
