Neurologist: I am presuming you are seeing a neurologist for this level of problem. If your MRI scans are totally normal that would make ms unlikely.... If your symptoms are stable and not changing/ moving that also makes it unlikely. See a neurologist or, if you already have, see another for a second opinion.
