MS Test Results - Multiple Sclerosis ??

I think my neurologist is being cautious and I understand that but I need the thoughts of those of you experienced in these areas.
I have had issues for YEARS that I thought were independent of each other and still many maybe.
Restless legs, cramping legs, heavy arms, legs and body feeling, IBS, TIRED, foggy
More recently my toes, part of my foot, finger tips go tingly and or numb feeling.
Then I went to the hospital because I thought I was having a stroke or something (I never go to the hospital). I was horribly dizzy, my arm was feeling weird ….. too many things to list. They gave me an MRI and to make the entire story manageable - Some Lesions that are indicative of MS and some lesions that are not
Went to a Neuro and he ordered the battery of blood tests and lumbar puncture - Here are the results:
