7 Months Body Numbing? No Dr Has Answer

July 2019 BOTH LEFT ARM AND LEG tingling numbness with NO PAIN then few days later my cheecks and jaw line are tingling even tounge and scalp it varys and lessens and worssens throughout the day… what could have happen I don’t lift heavy and have been working on stregething program. went to hosptial and got cleared from ct scan and blood work for being NOT IN STROKE situation. but what could this be and is it fixable without surgrey

i also relize its been 7 months now any type of lifting makes me tingle all over.
neuro got me to do brain mri … got results written report says unremarkable…
ALL BLOOD WORK ALSO GOOD CALCUIM AND B-12 AND ALL

guessing thats good? also got neck MRI small herniation but they said it isn’t causing it also got put on medicine for sermon that didn’t help

now what? he said it isnt neck related? is this possible? or is he miscordinating … he said im MS FREE and it cant be neck related… i do relize thou i wake up in morning sometimes with it… and if i lift heavy bags with my arms i feel some type of shock through arm… could this be related? any ideas?

I am guessing EMG IS LAST OPTION?

You mention neck MRI with a small herniation. Have you had a back MRI all the way down your spine? The first thing I thought of when reading the first sentence of your post was “herniated disk pressing on some nerves”. I am similarly unsure how they could be so certain the neck herniation was not the issue, unless you were with an expert. If you just got the results, it is possible it used to be a BIG herniation and it is still upsetting all the surrounding tissue.

Have you been on any anti-inflammatories (steroidal or non-steroidal) for any length of time?

I am not a doctor, I only speak out of some personal experience.
