There is a difference, but I don't know all the details, but MS is autoimmune.  Both are neurological.  Your vision is more likely to be affected with MS.

I like that last answer.  It clarified my own answer even for me.  I did know that MS was autoimmune, though.  I also know that MS kills, but it's very individual.  Some with MS live a full lifespan with the illness.  I think more people live longer with MS than what was happening a lifetime ago, too.
