While there have..: ...probably been cases where this sequence of events was thought to be associated, this is not a common identifiable pathway for MS to develop. Millions of cases of post-viral syndrome or shingles occur without resulting in MS. The normal brain MRI is reassuring. I would definitely not worry about this. Continue to work with your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good wishes:)
