See details: Ms very unlikely. See a rheumatologist and have it evaluated to see if there is an underlying connective tissue disorder.

See below: Does NOT sound like MS or lupus based on description so far, but if you have a true malar rash, might behoove you to do a full ANA profile, and lupus anticoagulant studies.
