In seeing a neurologist I'm confident that you had an appropriate examination & thorough testing. If you're interested in obtaining a second opinion, consult a specialist in neuromuscular disorders at a department of neurology at a university hospital near you.

Might consider your symptoms are due to peripheral nerve disorder, if no sign of central nervous system issues. Discuss fully with your neurologist, and decide appropriate next steps to pin down etiology of your symptoms.
