I have lhermitte's but normal neuro and brain/neck mri. Neuro says its not ms, but symptom intensifies with exercise. Is this ms?

Nonspecific. Would wonder about B-12 deficiency, spinal cord compression, cervical vertebral instability, as other explanations for your problem. Lhermitte's classic in MS, but other conditions can cause.
L'hermitte's . Ms, cervical radiculopathies, brachial plexus problems, chiari malformation, syrinx, can all cause similar complaints. I assume they were also ruled out by neurologist. Muscles that attach to occipital for thoracic origin or scapular origin can cause this symptom with movement. Can it be ms, in short the answer is yes, but, the gold standard test is MRI for ms.
Lhermittes is not MS. Lhermitte's phenomenon can occur for many reasons. Your normal MRI studies and exam should eliminate MS and intervertebral disc disease as the causes. It is not clear what the cause is, but you should feel reassurred, based on these findings.

I have many MS symptoms and I am scheduled for a brain and neck mri. What if they show nothing? Will there be no diagnosis?

Multiple Dx... Not knowing exactly what you mean by "ms symptoms" clouds the issue, but does not mean there is no diagnosis pending. At your age a number of neurological deficits, some of minor importance and some more significant, can mimic ms but i would wait for the MRI before despairing over lack of diagnosis. Read more...
MS tests pending. Some MS symptoms help make the diagnosis, and sometimes MRI testing is needed. When that fails, sometimes spinal tap testing is helpful. For now, it makes sense to get your test results before a plan is agreed on.

Variable. At age 72 yrs, I would doubt the answer for your symptoms is MS. "MS symptoms" could be very nonspecific and due to different disease process. Some doctors do not seem as open or definitive as others, and may communicate minimally. If yours is similar, you may need a second opinion. You see, there is ALWAYS an answer to symptoms, just need to find it. Read more...

Normal brain/neck mri/emg. Having tingle/numbness in various places over body along with muscke twitches. Sound like MS or would MS be not all over?

MS mimics. Multiple sclerosis can present as different neurological symptoms in different parts of the body. If your MRI was normal, then it is less likely that you have MS. Many other conditions can mimic MS (NMO, lupus, ADEM, neurosarcoid, etc) and can be evaluated by your neurologist. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/770971. Read more...
Tingling all over. It is highly unusual to have MS and a normal MRI of the brain and the spinal cord in the neck. Although MS can affect the entire body, MS is probably not the cause of your symptoms. Muscle twitching, tingling and numbness can be symptoms of many things. How long do these symptoms last? Do they last for days, or minutes? Why do you have spinal cord compression as a diagnosis? Read more...

Prob not MS. With the normal MRI tests, it is probably not MS. If the numbness area is large, an EMG may help. You may find this tool helps the information about how to diagnose MS http://www.neurocuro.com/how-do-you-know-if-you-have-ms/ Read more...
Not MS. Some of your symptoms could be explained by a spinal cord compression, and if not answer, might consider peripheral nerve issue. A neurological exam may be very helpful. Read more...

Numb patches on one foot and muscle twitches including in the eye. Concerned about MS but had normal brain and neck MRI and clean emg. Anxiety?

Well now... This being HealthTap and not a doctor's office, you won't get an answer to what it IS, but normal MRIs pretty much rule out MS and a normal EMG/NCS rules out a large-fiber neuropathy. Not everything our bodies do has a precise name or explanation. Sometimes you have to take the practical approach: If it goes on for 1-3 yr without change or anything else developing, it's probably benign. Read more...
