it's a kind of benign ms. why did he have mri and lp done?
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!

Welcome to ThisIsMS. It sounds like a good opportunity for your husband to optimize his diet and nutrition and eliminate proinflammatory factors. Some things that I would recommend in this area include eliminating trans fat, minimize saturated fat, use omega-3 fish oil, get his vitamin D3 levels checked (25-hydroxy D3 should be 60 ng/mL), drink green tea for its antiinflammatory EGCG antioxidant. Other ideas, as well as more information on these suggestions, can be found on the Diet and Natural Approach forums. In addition, a good exercise regimen is also important. My suggestion is to do what's fun so you'll be motivated to do it.

To answer your question, it sounds like your husband falls into the category called preclinical MS which is the first division in the plot below. This is where the attacks don't produce symptoms and the brain has sufficient neuroplasticity to compensate for any deficits.
