Unlikely: I am not aware of smoking causing ms lesions. Suggest you follow up with a neurologist.

Possibly: A neurologist and neuroradiologist will be best able to answer you concern. In general however, smoking can exacerbate the injury caused by ms by causing microvascular disease of the brain blood vessels. You should stop smoking! period.
