Psilocybin and multifocal demyelination

Does psilocybin (an active component in magic mushrooms) cause multifocal demyelination, which leads to multiple sclerosis? A few my friends do mushrooms couple times a year, and I myself done them 2 or 3 times, neither I or them have symptoms, but I'm worried. Found only few clues about connection between psilocybin and demyelination on the Internet.
Thank you.
