Get a new consult: you mention sensory complaints that follow half the body and face-same side without finding a structural cbause. The symptoms are not progressive-worse, but same for several years-reassuring. There are no other systems involved? There is no underlying disease or injury? Maybe all tests done is not an answer and requires a comprehensive neurology evaluation. get a full work up.
