Tingling and numbness in limbs. Numbness on side of face. History of heart problems. MRI normal

My husband is having tingling and minor numbness in his fingertips (both hands) and legs (both). In addition, he is having mild numbness on the left side of his face/mouth. This will occur and then go away, this has happened a few times over the past two months. It started again yesterday. When we go to the er they do a cat scan, tell him everything looks normal and releases him. He has a history of heart problems, is on blood thinners, his blood pressure and cholesterol are all fine. He was in hospital about 45 days ago and they ran every test on him from spinal fluid to mri . Nothing showed up. His doctor is out of town and the neurologist office hasn t returned his call. We feel helpless . . .

dors your husband has diabeties and on any medications for this? if so peripheral neuropathy should be suspected.does he have any neck pain or injury to the cervical region? if so cervical spondylosis is a possibility. he has numbness over the left side of the face and mouth which indicates probaby 5 th nerve involvement(trigeminal nerve) which may also occur in high cervical spine pathology or in case of possible brain tumour. it is better if he takes MRI cervical spine to look for any pathology.
