Neurological Sx: I'm so sorry your mom isn't feeling well. Tingling and numbness in her extremities prompted the spine MRI and should include an MRI of her brain as well. Laboratory workup for neuropathy should be included, as well as a full history and physical exam. With regard to the tingling/numbness she should follow up with a Neurologist at this point for that matter good luck.
