Since July 16 my left foot and outside part of the leg has been numb/tingling continously, my doctor had blood tested for B12 & Folic, both came back normal, had EMG which came back normal, the Neurologist said they would not be concerned about MS unless I lost my vision or started dragging my foot, and then I SHOULD COME BACK :eek: I myself would like to know before it went that far! She also said that I would have to wait until the nerves were more damaged to have another EMG with different results.

I am going to another doctor Wednesday, should I request a MRI to see if it is MS? Is it too early to tell? what is the difference between contrast and non? Do I have to have permanent damage to the nerves before the EMG will show it?

I have started having numbness/tingling on the same side of my back, not continous, but could they be connected? Are there other test that I should ask for? Any help would be greatly appreciated
