It is my understanding that if a person has thyroid disease they are a good candidate for MS. I believe I have a lot of the symptoms such as: muscle spasm of leg, muscle weakness of leg, difficulty urinating, dizziness, problems with balance, depression, forgetful, unable to concentrate, feeling stupid.

Answer

People with MS often have thyroid disease but having thyroid problems alone doesn't mean that someone has MS -- but having neurological symptoms does mean that you should talk to your PCP about seeing a neurologist -- they can help figure out the cause of your symptoms.
