When there's widespread numbness and tingling along with other scattered symptoms
, it's difficult to localize the lesion to specific spots in the brain that may be damaged by
MS. However, there is a small amount of patients who DO have nonspecific, vague neurologic symptoms that don't localize anywhere and the MRI shows classic MS spots throughout the brain and spinal cord. In your case, though, the MRI (should have brain AND spine) was clean which makes the diagnosis of MS much less likely.
