It could be an primary episode of MS. A demyelinating disease is any condition that results in damage to the protective covering (myelin sheath) that surrounds nerve fibers in your brain, optic nerves and spinal cord. When the myelin sheath is damaged, nerve impulses slow or even stop, causing neurological problems. MS is the most common demyelinating condition. In MS, demyelination occurs in the white matter of the brain and in the spinal cord.

Demyelination - is it related to spinal cord injury 5 years back.? No. It is not related. Spinal cord injury without radiological abnormality (SCIWORA) - is seen in immediate post trauma period In this case there is no radiological damage to vertebral column but there is significant neurological damage seen such as paraplegia or significant neurological deficit. It happens because of microscopic damage to spinal cord.
