Treatment of CIS
I have a question regarding my MS and as you are an expert in this field, I would feel it a good idea to seek your knowledge and advice. I believe you had an email from my partner who you kindly advised on the situation of children with someone that has MS. I am very grateful to you for providing her with some of the facts she needed to know. Furthermore, I was initially diagnosed with MS in 1994 and this being the first and single episode of having 'pins and needles' in the tips of 3 fingers at that stage a firm diagnosis could not be made however it was suspected. Subsequently in 2001 had a case of optical neuritis in one eye after a I had been running in winter and suffered a head cold and the optic neuritis was triggered then and lasted approx a week that has since disappeared. Now, I have come across the phenomena of Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS) but I don't know really how that manifests in my case? and with my history and not being on any medication since what it means that I haven't taken treatment from the beta-interferon range, would that have arrested further risks of developing lesions that might be shown on a MRI scan?
I suppose the big question for me is that do I have MS or something other? and how does the CIS factor into my case if it is relevant? Some family members have said that "I should keep on doing what I am doing" but is there anything you suggest I should do to observe and follow. It is difficult for me as I do have a dark shadow that follows me but I am not certain if this is a figment of my imaginaton and I should conrinue to look forwards. I appreciate your time and patience to read through this and I would be most grateful to hear your response.
