Yes this is possible. Anxiety often manifests with physical symptoms that come and go. Please consider discussing treatment options for this with your primary care physician.

Would suggest you tackle your health anxiety proactively and find a cognitive-behavioral therapist to work with you. Relaxation therapies such as biofeedback and meditation may be additively successful. Seriously doubt that any of your symptoms represent MS, but discuss your concerns with your regular doctor.
