lesion and pain in MS

I know that the finding of lesions on a MRI scan of the brain may or may not result in any clinical outcomes. So hypothetically speaking, could lesions in the medulla cause pain in the neck area?

Possibly, but a cervical lesions is more likely.

Remember, however, that the medulla (lowest part of the brainstem) is right above the cervical spine (neck) and so it can contribute to the pain.

what are the chances of a lesion being on the spine but not showing up on the mri?
I have many on the brain but my neuro says alot of my symptoms point to a lesion on the spine. I have had 4 mri's on the spine and they have all came back normal.
thanks for your time.
