I agree with both comments.

MS can be very difficult to diagnose because there is no definitive test.

Not the MD for this forum, obviously, but I can answer this.

Diagnosing MS usually requires a workup that includes exclusion of the many possible mimics and a suite of results on neurological exam possibly combined with MRI, VEP, SSEP, and/or lumbar puncture results. For some people, the outcomes of testing are so equivocal that it takes a pretty significant amount of time to achieve a diagnosis. Others have a more distinct clinical profile that becomes clearer with every test.

At any rate, this disorder is not something one can diagnose without professional medical consultation. If you're having symptoms that concern you, you should consult a medical professional.
