If you have no brain or cervical scans how was it determined that you have MS?
Sorry, I had a MRI 18 years ago. And with that the neurologist said I had MS.
Based on our brief meeting, I can only say that I am amazed you don't have any basic x-rays of your spine or cervical and lumbar MRIs. It is important to understand the condition of the spine as a possible causative factor as well as to contend with co-morbidities brought on by weaknesses and immobility due to MS. I will PM you.

The diagnosis of MS is probably correct in your case. Classic MS is more than just a bunch of symptoms lumped together. MS is associated with demyelination and scarring in the brain and cervical cord. Classically speaking, it is associated with supratentorial (above the posterior fossa), periventricular (around the lateral ventricles) and perivenular (around the veins) lesions. MS has been previously attributed to latent viruses. The medical association denied any connection to trauma. They were wrong. The evidence is mounting regarding the role of trauma in neurodegenerative conditions such as AD, PD and MS.
