Hiv test and multiple sclerosis

Hi everyone,
I want to test for hiv but i am afraid of getting a false-postive result, i was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and I read some random topics that ms can give a false-postive result.

My questions:

How often is that happening? ( getting a false-postive result due to ms)

And in what type of test the false positive result will occur ?

And if a positive result occurs, well they do additional tests in the same day for confirmation ?( before they tell me)

Ms dose not effect the immune system, so the test will be accurate.
