I'm not familiar enough with MS to determine whether these could be caused by MS.  Are the streaks new? Are they raised, and/or warm? If so, this could indicate a spreading infection and requires medical attention ASAP.

Here is photo.  Definitely not infection .
Also thanks for responding
I agree that those don't look like a spreading infection, thank goodness.  I've never seen anything like that.  They look similar to stretch marks, but one would expect to see those in someone who has gained weight rapidly - and you don't appear to have a weight-gain issue.  I'm afraid I'm stumped.

This article suggests that streaks can be associated with connective tissue disorders: https://www.medicinenet.com/red_streaks_on_the_skin/symptoms.htm

I'd also ask in the MS forum here: https://www.medhelp.org/forums/Multiple-Sclerosis/show/41
There are some active members there who may have ideas, especially if it's related to MS.
