Lesions were a surprise, can colon issues be an MS symptom?

I have been in the care of a neurologist for about 7 years for severe migraines but had never had an MRI. Last week, I learned through an MRI intended to confirm osteoarthritis in my neck (which was thought to be making my migraines worse) that I had a C4 lesion.

I am wondering how much MS will limit my future

I'm in my early 20s and I'm afraid I won't be able to do what I want to do. (whatever that may be). I am afraid for my future and I no longer have peace of mind.
