I would say no and here is why. Aseptic meningitis is defined as an irritation of the meninges (membranes that surround the brain) that is not caused by a culterably organism, like a bacteria, tb, syphillis (syphilis), or fungus. Many viruses cause aseptic meningitis. Other things, like some medications, or tumors, or leaking blood can cause the irritation also.
MS attacks the deeper central nervous system - not the outside lining. When lesions are seen on the meninges it points waayy, away from MS to an viral infection, Lyme, NeuroSarcoid, etc.
I'm not saying that a person with MS can't get aseptic meningitis, but it would be a separate thing, not related to the MS.
