NO: Loads of controversy has swirled regarding ms and trauma, but looking at all of this, it is quite clear that there is no real relationship btwn the cause of ms and any kind of trauma. There is some possible tendency to worsen ms with open head trauma, that is penetration through the skull, but not with a closed head injury. In short, your injury did not cause ms.
