MS ruled out? Or maybe not?

Two years ago I underwent a series of tests in an attempt to discover the cause of my numerous health problems, one of those tests was an MRI. MS along with other auto immune diseases like Lupus were among my list of possible suspects. When the results for my MRI returned as normal I was told this ruled out MS, which I was most relieved about. Now however in addition to my other symptoms that followed those of MS I have two more symptoms, sudden numbness in my hands/arms and feet/legs, and weakness in my hands. So I am wondering if an MRI, especially an outdated one, could completely rule out MS. Would the lesions have been there two years ago? Are there not always lesions present on a MS patient's MRI? I really need to rule this diagnosis out once and for all.

Thank you
