Many symptoms: You have many symptoms as described, and it appears a family hx as well of some diseases. You should see a dr. And tell them your symptoms and get lab testing including tests that would check/screen for autoimmune disorders, including lupus. Best wishes.

See below: You may need to see a rheumatologist for an evaluation, but you may also need to see hematologist in light of the nose bleeds and a urologist in the light of the bloody urine. You have several complex symptoms all of which need to be evaluated.

Get re-evaluation: Are you convinced you do have ms, and was the diagnosis confirmed? If so, are you taking an ms medication? Instead, you may well have a mixed collagen vascular disease or lupus, but anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome could present in this fashion. Granted you could possess two disorders, but get this pinned down asap, as more direct treatment needs to be initiated.

2nd opinion: You would probably benefit from an evaluation by an ms specialist and a rheumatologist to determine which or how many autoimmune disorders you may have.

Lupus: 1st thing that came to my mind while reading this is that you may have lupus. You need to see your doctor. The bleeding is of concern. Go asap and good luck to you.
