Would you treat MS with no lesions?

In brief: 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.

85% with MS have VEPs

In brief: If no lesions found,

I seriously doubt you have MS, and would propose getting a second opinion.

In brief: 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
