Thanks for writing to us.
If you think your symptoms can be due to MS then you can actually opt for an MRI of better precision.
But before going for a repeat MRI my advise would be that you take a second opinion for your symptoms. It is always better to have an opinion rather self diagnose the symptoms after an internet search.
A detailed examination by a physician is an integral part of diagnosis.
I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
Wishing you good health.
