My ANA test came back positive, 1:640 titre mixed pattern homogenous and speckled. What does this mean? I have had MS for 3 years.

In brief: See rheumatologist?

This suggests that you may have an autoimmune disorder which however cannot be diagnosed by this test alone.
This also has nothing to do with MS even though it is also considered an autoimmune disorder. If you have no symptoms suggestive of other autoimmune disorders, the approach may just be further observation. If you have joint , pulmonary , or cardiac symptoms, see a rheumatologist.
