In brief: Not uncommonly

There are several disease states that can mimic multiple sclerosis, and MRI lesions can likewise be misleading.
Since this is so very complex, it is best to seek additional opinions from physicians who specialize in the area, as the diagnosis may not always be easy to reach.
