I am a 47 female. A year ago I had some type of attack…numbness , tingling , tremor and muscle contractions. An MRI of my brain and spine was negative. Then that episode resolved but since then I have muscle stiffness. I can't walk up stairs well and have weakness when standing. My feet have tingling at times then feel normal . I can't walk far as I have pins and needles in my legs and feet and my muscles are weak. I am tired all the time and head hurts and has weird sensations. I had another brain MRI and spine 6 months ago which were negative. I have seen two neurologists and all say it isn't MS. My MRIs are negative, Lyme's disease is negative and all blood work normal. I truley believe this is MS. What do you think?
The vast majority of individuals with MS will eventually have abnormalities on MR imaging. Ask your neurologist or PCP for a second opinion to determine the underlying cause of your complaints.
