Brain Microvascular Disease

Hi, Iam new here. I have questions about brain microvascular disease. I was Dx with Ms in 2001. I have 5 lesions on my brain. My new nero said he doesen't think it is MS. But I have had two mini strokes. and that I have Microvascular brain Disease. Over several years I have been trying to get a exercize program nothing to strenuouse (SP).just slow walking. But every time I try I experence numbness and tingling on my whole left side. head to toe. If I try to ignore it. after a few walks I loose total use of my left side. for a week or more. I went for a stroll nothing causing excertion. by that night It hit again. I called my Nero 3 days later. He sent me to get an MRI w contrast. Everything was the same. He told me to take it easy no exercize. Now I know nothing about this disease but tiny vessels in the brain are messed up, constricted or something. Are these normal symptoms. Will I ever be able to exercize. I'm really overweight and need to loose at least 75 pounds. Help What do I do I don't understand. I also have high chol, high BP and Trigs. Anything anyone can tell me I would really be grateful for any info. Thanks...Jazz867
