For 5 months, I had constant numbness and tingling up and down my legs and arms, down the back of my neck and across my face. My left side symptoms were worse, but I had the occasional numbness on my right side.
After the first month of this, I saw a neurologist and had a brain MRI. The MRI was negative, and I moved on, hoping that my symptoms (which began immediately after a vaccination) symptoms would go away.
Unfortunately, after about 6 weeks mostly symptom-free, all of my symptoms have returned. I've also made a connection with a back pain I was having before. The pain went away when I was symptom free, but it too is back. It feels like a bruise on one vertebrae.
I'm worried that I might have MS even though my brain MRI was negative. Should I get a spine MRI too?
Is it common to have these symptoms without any real muscle weakness. I feel tireder that usual, but not really weak. I'm 40 years old before these symptoms appeared, I exercised daily and felt perfectly health.
