Brief Answer:
Follow-up MRI if the symptoms persist.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist,here to answer your query.

If you would have presented to me as an outpatient with this complaint,I would have told you that-this new symptom is not described among the classical symptoms for MS and I agree with your treating neurologist in this regard.However,MS can present with strange and bizarre symptoms sometimes.
So,I suggest you to keep observing if this symptoms persists and if it does so,please get the follow-up MRI scans of brain and spine to see if any fresh MS lesions have appeared or not.In that case,your therapy can be planned accordingly.

If you have any further queries,I shall be glad to answer.
