Usually: Sometimes a spinal cord tumor, especially with extrinsic compression, can result in false localizing clinical signs, which could result in imaging at wrong level, but if precise, the MRI will show lesion. However, you say that you have B-12 issues, and this can cause spinal cord problems in posterior columns, which are also seen on MRI. Do you feel Concierge visit might help?
