4 doctors agree

In brief: Yes but

MS can cause bladder problems:either problem with emptying(bladder muscle contracts poorly)or problem with storage(small amount of urine cause bladder to contract,so urination is frequent).
Blood in urine is unrelated to MS.Wish you well.

In brief: Yes. But...

Ms causes poor bladder function and retention of urine.
This is due to the effect on the nerve supply of the bladder. However, for blood in the urine you need to rule out causes like stones, ulcers, and cancers. This is done by cystoscopy.

In brief: Yes, but see below

MS can cause a variety of problems with bladder function, including difficulty initiating urine, or loss of control of urinary function.
Blood may indicate infection, and cystoscopy will reveal precise current issues. You are taking a potent MS medication, but would add vitamin D-3, if you are not already supplementing this vitamin.
