No, there is no cure for ms at this time. There are meds avail to help try to slow the progression as well as help to try to decrease the intensity of the flares, but no cure. Some of the tests used to determine if a person is experiencing ms are MRI's, evoked potentials, a number of in office tests the neuro performs, as well as many, many blood tests and lumbar puncture (spinal tap). These tests aren't "MS Tests". There is no such test to prove or dx ms. Ms dx-ing is a process of ruling other things out. In effect, ms is ruled in when all other possibilities are ruled out AND when there is some evidence that ms exist thru lesions in specific areas of the brain and spine and abnormalities in some of the other tests results that can't or aren't explained by other illnesses or diseases.
