Very low:): With negative brain MRI, you should feel relaxed to have ruled out serious conditions like MS or any brain pathology. Most likely cause of your upper body tingling would likely be nerve compression in upper spine, which would require physical therapy. To confirm diagnosis, have your doctor order a spinal MRI.
