Weakness, dizziness: Hi Alec: You've had symptoms for several months. Did you have an infection prior to these symptoms starting? I am assuming the MRI was the spine (or brain?). In any case, an evaluation by a neurologist is essential. There are several possibilities, and best to see a specialist like neurology. Good luck!

Glad to know you've seen a neurologist. I think a face to face evaluation with a rheumatologist will be helpful also.
