Could This be MS?

Hi Everyone,
I am currently having issues mainly with feet, mainly my left one. This all started about 8 months ago with I felt like there was a hair around my toe. It progressed to making my toes feel odd and then the burning on tops of my feet started ,currently my left foot feel cold at times and hot at others.
I had a neurologist test me as my sister has MS. So far, brain MRI is clear and NCS and muscle tests all normal. Had skin biospy for small fiber that was also normal.
Plan is to have a cervical MRI with contrast done.
Seems strange to test the cervical spine when it is in my feet.

It is possible to have a normal brain MRI and still have MS. That is probably why your neuro ordered a cervical MRI to look for lesions there to try to  include/exclude MS.

My testing was all negative as well and I was finally diagnosed by process of exclusion. A year after I had started treatment, I finally developed a brain lesion that was considered a normal MS lesion.

Please keep us updated.

Wishing you a speedy diagnosis and treatment plan for what ever it is that is causing your symptoms.

Looking at your cervical spine in relation to problems with your feet is not at all strange. Messages have to travel from your brain to your feet and do so through your cervical spine. Damage to your central nervous system in your cervical spine cpuld be causing the problem :-)

I had the cervical MRI with and without contrast yesterday. I get the results on Tuesday.
