Four abnormal MRIs

I have had 4 abnormal MRIs. They found white spots or lesions in my brain.They thought i had MS. I also had a lumbar puncture, evoked potential,and a full neck and spine MRI which all came back negative for lesions and MS. Thats what I was told by my neurologist. I do also have  Migraines, high blood pressure, Diabetes type 2 , Hypothyroidism, Fibromyalgia, and severe feet pain, and probably some nuropathy in my legs and feet. I have lots of memory loss, short term specially. I have trouble making everyday simple decisions, my speech is affected. I am fatigued constantly, tired all the time, and am afraid to go out alone. I have fallen down a couple times, but not recently. My quality of life is not good for being only 47 yrs. old. I have been told that some of the lesions or white spots have gone and some new ones have come. And I have been told that the spots are still there too. I have also been told that I do not have any autoimmune diseases. I feel like i am going crazy! What could possible be worng with me? Could I still have MS? Or maybe something else? I have had so many tests done and no one seems to know what wrong with me! Can you help me???

You will have these lesions also due to high Blood Pressure and your Diabetes history.
You have to overhaul your system, salt restricted diet, cardio and weight loss coupled with strict diet chart, designed near a Dietician.
After you improve your fitness atleast the risk of controllable haemorrhage decreases.
As you do not have MS and no major defect your quality of life will improve.
Take care!

Okay, so can these lesions affect my short term memory, and my speech? Cause they do. And also my ability to make decisions and etc. . Some lesions have gone away and seom new ones have come too. Will I be like this for the rest of my life? Not being able to remember things, and needing help for everything? My blood pressure is under control, and I do take meds for it. I am on insulin for my type 2 diabetes. Which is pretty much under control, it could be better I am sure.And yes I am overweight, I weigh 215 and I am 5"4. But my cognitive functions are very poor. And I need help to do daily things.Could I still have MS? Even though all my other tests came back negative.???
