| | Can MS only affect spinal cord?
Hi...I've been dealing with strange symptoms for the past 5 years..mainly a pins and needles sensation in my left foot (also a tightness there) and also in my right side of my back. On occasion I also can have tingling and numbness in my face or left fingertips. Over the past 5 years, I've seen general MD's (diagnosed me with anxiety), 3 neurologists, had 1 CAT scan, 2 brain MRI's (the last one this past November, entirely normal), blood work (normal) and one evoked potentials test (normal). I have never had a spinal cord MRI...is it possible to have MS lesions on JUST your spinal cord, and not brain? My last neuro said this was extremely rare.... should I go back to him and request a Spinal MRI? Thanks much!
