NUmbness/tingling/pain in left hand, balance & gait disturbances. My husband was diagnosed with CTS and a pinched elbow nerve in his right arm. The surgery to repair it did not work. Further tests lead to a diagnosis of cervical herniated disc. This surgery left him with all the same symptoms but added extreme pain. Symtoms seem like MS but all tests seem normal. I hate to see him in such pain and I'm not sure the doctor believes the pain is real.
