Symptoms and MRI seem to point to MS but having trouble being diagnosed

I have had odd symptoms and episodes over the past few years that come and go and eventually just become my new normal. I will have symptoms and then they will go away for a few years with residual lingering symptoms.
I have a lot of sensory issues, a cold sensation spot on my right calf, a buzzing feeling in my left foot and ankle as well as my left arm and left back, sometimes I even feel it in my head. I also have constipation issues, fatigue, brain fog and trouble remembering words or going blank in the middle of a conversation. Also when walking I feel like I have to focus on keeping my balance or that I am being pushed to one side.
My MRI seems to be very consistent with MS, I have a lesion in my corpus callosum, a lesion in my frontal lobe, and additional lesions in my Periventricular white matter. The MRI did not stayed how many exactly were in that area it just said additional. The neurologist that I have seen and I have seen a few seem to think that the lesions are not consistent with MS.
Very confused and just looking for help and advice.

Thanks so much!
