Tracie, that’s a difficult question, which is why MS is so hard to diagnose. They could be related to MS, but they could also be linked to a few other conditions. High blood pressure could well be the cause of your headaches.
But, you’ve had an MRI done now. This and your history of symptoms would give a Neurologist a start in identifying your condition. They might ask for more tests, e.g. Lumbar Puncture, Visual Evoked Potentials, just to confirm any diagnosis.

MS is so hard to diagnose…and it can be different for everyone. I actually lost a ton of weight and muscle when I was diagnosed and became very frail. The rest can definately be MS symptoms or many other things. I hope for the best for you, its like a blessing just to “know”. I was told I had vertigo, I needed a shrink ect.. before I was actually diagnosed. Best wishes to you xxx let us know what happens!!
