How did you know you had MS/or what were the symptoms that initiated testing for MS? 
I have been having paresthesia in my head/scalp and down my back for about a week now.  I also have headaches and feel drugged sort of...I just feel so limp, like I have lost muscle tone or something.  I have an MRI scheduled on Monday.
I did have postpartum thyroiditis (hyper stage) and now they are suspected hypothyroidism...my TSH came back 0.9, T3 and T4 were around 0.6.  I mention this b/c I know thyroid can screw up many things in the body.

I think you should get the thyroid issue checked first, before worrying about MS!

I went for a number of years with increasing difficulty walking, legs "feeling like lead", and falling down a lot, before I went to a doctor. It took about 3 months of tests to *rule out* other things before settling on a diagnosis of MS. This was 25 years ago, though, long before MRI's were even invented.
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....
