I have been suffering from numbness and tingling for the past 5 months. It started with the right side of my face and has now traveled to my neck, upper chest, upper back, arm, and hand (right side). I am a 43 year-old woman. Have also had shaking hand (right), tremors, incontinence, memory and concentration problems, and my eye dr. says he sees evidence of temporal pallor on my optic nerve (been there for 10 years). I've had 2 clear MRIs of brain and C Spine and a clear spinal tap. Been tested for lyme, lead, arsenic, infection, and auto-immune problems...all negative. Two neurologists are at the end of their ideas. I still think it may be MS even with clear MRI's, they insist no.

Any ideas? This is driving me crazy!:confused:

Thank you very much.
