MS? Neuropathy?

I have been having symmetrical numbness in my legs since April: front and inner thighs, inner knees, calves and bottom of feet. Progressed gradually from feet to thighs. No improvement over past 4 months. Some muscle wasting and weakness. Affects my balance and walking. Neurologist says MS because there are brain and spine lesions. But no optic neuritis or L’Hermitte’s. Other body parts not affected. Any ideas? Peripheral neuropathy?

I am having almost the same issues as you mentioned in your post. What was determined to be the cause for you?
