I have tn and hyperreflexia do I have ms?

Unlikely, but. Tn is trigeminal neuralgia? Should have MRI and see if there is some blood vessel or boney protruberance compressing nerve. Hyper-reflexia is non-specific. Although ms can be associated with your problems and more, it is more likely something different is causing your issues. See a neurologist and get all of this under control.
