My wife diagnosed with Clinically isolated syndrome

My wife was diagnosed with clinically isolated syndrome 2 weeks ago.
She had tingling in her feet while walking for 2 weeks. Our neuro requested a MRI which showed 2 active small brain lesions and 1 active spinal lesion. She said that brain lesions were not causing the attack, but the spinal lesion was responsible for tingling in feet. My wife was also tested negative for optic neuritis.

She took Prednol (1000 mg for 7 days), and her light tingling symptoms passed about 90%.

Are there any ways (drugs) to prevent another attack? Is it possible to delay or minimize a future possible episode?

Dear leviathanfb,

Talk to the diagnosing doctor about whether he strongly suspects MS. These days, neuros are diagnosing CIS and starting patients on an MS disease-modifying therapy if they are fairly certain it is MS. Early treatment is documented to have an impact on the disease course.

The MS therapies are designed to limit the number of attacks and lessen the severity of them. So starting one of those drugs is the only way to delay/minimize a future episode.

I hope you'll have that discussion with her neurologist and let us know what you decide to do.
