See a neurologist: There are diseases of nerves which do not show on MRI. Neurologists are doctors trained in diagnosing nervous system diseases like the one you describe. Please call today for a visit, good luck

Challenging: Your description strongly implicates a neuromuscular disorder, and you would be be served by getting a consult from the department of Neurology at your local medical school. It is unlikely that your answers will be uncovered by radiology, as some disorders cannot be readily visualized. Would focus upon peripheral nerves, muscles, and neuropathy-muscular junction.
