wow pualani, that is a lot of stuff to deal with all at once. Take a deep breath and realize that it's one thing at a time. MS is often (but unfortunately not always) a slow-moving condition and you will more than likely have the opportunity to make an informed decision about your treatments AFTER your more pressing concern of having a hysterectomy. But your body will be your guide and you should come to grips with the idea that you MAY need to go on therapy in the near future...
For me personally, I would definitely get a second opinion before committing to a potential lifetime of expensive treatments that carry not insignificant side effects.
MS is not usually diagnosed ONLY with MRIs, as there are a multitude of reasons why someone might have lesions in their brain (migraines cause lesions, for example)-- there are many other indicators that can be taken to get a better picture of what's really going on with you, such as a spinal tap. I know, not fun, but better to know you're treating the right thing.
