Question about symptom, help appreciated

I have been seeing the neuro for a while and have suspected MS, normal MRI, but signs in the clinic. EVP and Spinal tap next on the agenda. I have only really had tingles, numbness, weakness in the legs (mainly the right), I do get bad migraines (2 to 8 per month). I have noticed when I work out any (10-15 minutes on the weights) my right arm goes almost useless. No pain, no pins/needles, just areas of movement that the arm just sort of flops or shakes if I try to graps something. Last from about 1 hour to the rest of the evening, then it is back completely normal (I can duplicate this each time without exception since Christmas when I had a tremor set in for a few days with that hand). I consider my right arm stronger than my left and my left never does this. It is hard to drive, hold a cup, type etc... when this happens. Anyone else have this or can explain what might be going on? My next neuro visit is at the end of the month.

Re: Question about symptom, help appreciated

Everything that you describes sounds like MS. I have read stories on this board of people who are now diagnosed with MS that have normal MRIs. Heat accentuates symptoms and perhaps that is what is happening when you work out if you become overheated. I hope you get to the bottom of the cause soon so that you can put your mind at ease.
