Brief Answer: MS should have shown by now. Detailed Answer: If you had 4 MRI then surely by now MS would have shown if it was there. Your symptoms indicate peripheral neuropathy.So detailed evaluation of causes leading neuropathy should be undertaken. A consultation with neurologist to list out investigations not done till today can be undertaken.There are chances you can find the underlying cause. Hope this helps.Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
