Hello everyone,
I have these symptoms for 6 months: Paresthesia all over the body, fingers numbness, tinnitus, visual snow, fatigue... Lyme disease negative, I was two month on antibotics just to be sure - no response. Lumbal punction was negative (0 o-bands), but Im not so sure about my MRI scan. My doctor said its negative, but I can see something like lesion on it (there is one little bright spot on right hemisphere)

I can see a very small white-ish spot.  I am not a doctor so I cannot diagnose you.  If you suspect you have MS you need to go have a second opinion.  Be sure to see an MS specialist.  Contact your local MS Society for a list of MS specialists near you. 
 
You may want to visit the Lyme Board here for more information on that disease.  It can cause brain lesions and so can many other diseases and disorders.
 
Below is an excellent site describing the diagnostic process for MS.
