Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.
Can you tell me your age and gender please?
Are you on any medication currently?
Do you have any previously diagnosed medical conditions?
Thanks for the reply.
Your doctor is just trying to alleviate concerns of this being MS because of your current symptoms and since MS is deemed more likely in people who have had close relatives specially first degrees suffering from MS. Although, MS is not a hereditary condition. But considering that MS does not have any specific set of symptoms and diagnosis always starts with a possibility, it is best to start ruling it out early on.
Your symptoms could be due to a lot of conditions ranging from vitamin A and B12 deficiency to nerve impingement.
However, it is always best to have an MRI done early rather than later so that peace of mind can be achieved.
