Not MS: Multiple sclerosis will announce itself as discretely localized neurological findings. What you describe can be anything from hyperventilation to a peripheral neuropathy; the latter is the hardest workup in general medicine. Your next stop may be an electromyogram and nerve conduction velocities. Best wishes.
