Hi. You need another good MRI with the latest machines of the brain and cervical spine to see is there any problem in the neurological system. Go for nerve conduction studies. I hope you have to stop exposure to cold so stop trekking in himalayas and no swimming for the time-being. I hope you are not suffering from anxiety disorder or a sort of depression which too can produce similar symptoms as you have described.( provided all other tests are normal again)
