A member asked:

I have had tingling in both feet for over 5 months. now the tingling in my left foot has turned into pins and needles. i have had mri & emg tests and results were negative for ms & neuropathy ..... but no one can seem to help me... and im afraid?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Important that a small fiber neuropathy be evaluated, via skin punch biopsy, and consider lumbar stenosis if MRI of lumbar spine was not included. Do not clearly understand what testing was done for "MS", was there a lumbar puncture? Get second opinion with a neurologist at a nearby medical school.
