I am very sorry you are not feeling well and that you are not getting answers. I am not a doctor so of course I can't diagnose you. Your symptoms do not scream MS in my opinion. You have a lot of digestive problems that are not typical for MS. Also the itching is not associated with MS.
It is true that many people have lesions. Lesions are caused by many, many things.
My tests were: MRI with white matter lesions (3), lumbar puncture with typical MS oligoclonal banding, failed evoked potentials (vision-abnormal, hearing-normal, lower extremeties-abnormal), abnormal reflexes and responses to a neurological exam by the neurologist, blood work that indicated no infection.
I hope that info helps. You might try asking for an evoked potential test. That can indicate whether or not your central nervous system is responding to signals in a typical way. It is a painless, non-invasive test.
Good luck and keep us posted.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I will live with no limits.
