Hi,
Multiple sclerosie affect multiple areas of the brain and sign and symptoms can occur at different parts of the body at different time. It is usually a chronic disease with period of relapse. Although there is currently no cure, there are treatments to lessen the symptoms and reduce frequency of relapse. Pain and ringing could well be symptoms of MS relapse. So i would advise you contact you doctor so that you can discuss a new treatment option. Avonex is a drug that interfere with the immune system and hence reduce the MS progression. It would appear Avonex works well for her with reduce symptoms and you could continue on that.
Hope this helpful
