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.

Answered by Dr. Sudhir 10 hours later
Brief Answer: Fibromyalgia should presented with more symptoms Detailed Answer: If its nerve related then it can be due to deficiencies, imbalances and myopathies. But I feel nerve conduction study should throw some light on this. Regards.
