I read the previous comments and just wanted to add my story, for what it's worth. YES YOU CAN have normal MRI's of the brain/cervical spine and still have MS. I am living proof. I had normal scans but MS symptoms (and yes I also had multiple symptoms at once on my very first "attack" or onset) and my cervical lesion did NOT show up for the first couple MRI's but eventually DID show up this last time. I asked the neuro if this was unusual and he said ABSOLUTELY not. A lot of MRIs are not sensitive enough to pick them up and a lot of time they are (as he put it) "brewing" in the neck/brain before actually appearing.

I would not ignore any neurological signs. They are happening for a reason. I have (still have) Lhermitte's and mine is not the typical electrical shock type either -- never have I felt a shock, more like a vibration, or pulling sensation, surge sensation -- and it has never been in my spine, but my arms, legs, abdomen, etc. It can happen in one finger, one toe, one ankle, etc.

good luck to you and i hope you get some answers.

What MS symptoms do you have ? Leg reflexes abnormal ? Babinski present? What about your brain MRI?
