Yes, you should be able to be treated with Botox. You will want to confirm with your Neurologist to be sure though.

This may not be recommended. I suggest visiting your treating physician before getting Botox.

You need to talk to your neurologist and get approval. I have used Botox and Fillers on patients with MS, but only if their neurologist says its okay. Ask your neurologist and if they say its okay, find an experienced board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
