I am a 38 year old male. I have been seeing a neurologist but have not received a diagnosis. I did have MRI which was normal other then they said I have an abnormally straight neck (no arch). I had a nerve conductive study done and the Doc thought I might have Tarsal Tunnel but now my foot doctor doesn't think so. My symptoms: Numb/ tingly feet, sharp shooting pains/ pin like *****s (mostly in feet but now starting in hands), feels like something crawling around inside my feet, some numbness in head, arms, legs, stiff/ painful neck (feels like I have to turn to "crack it" all the time), pain in upper back between shoulder blades, occasional muscle spasms (10 to 15 sec long) in legs and arms, leg weakness, joint pain. Sorry to put so much but I am hopping to find some answers. I have been asked a lot if I ever injured my back or neck and the answer is no. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • To me it sounds like you have tight spinal foramens - the holes through which spinal nerves come out from the spinal cord. If the MRI has not shown anything special it can be a congenital condition.
