I Have had two MRI's. First MRI I had 1 Enhancing lesion. The 2 one I had three more enhancing lesions. I had a lumbar punctar that showed 10 IgG bands. I also had an abnormial VEP for my left eye. The only symptoms I have are cronic migrains, fatigue (controlled with provigil), and I keep getting tingingling in my feet on a regular basis then burning sensations in my feet. I have not had any symptoms last more than 24 hours. I do not go back and see my neuro for another month. I am worried about my military carreer. I have been in more than 15 years. Is it very likely he is going to tell me that I have MS from the tests that were performed even though I haven't had any episodes lasting for 24 hours.

Was first seen for cronic migraines and had MRI. That is when I was told I might has multiple Sclerosis. then had a second MRI's. 1 Spinal tap. VEP test.

According to the results from the diagnostic procedures (MRI, spinal tap and VEP) you could be experiencing multiple sclerosis (MS). Episodes that last less than 24 hours are not typical for MS but whatever it is you have brain damage. You may want to also consult an ophthalmologist to check if you have optic neuritis which is very typical for MS. Right now your symptoms are not so difficult but you can’t predict the future evolution of the disease.
