Default Foot tingling?

About last July, one of the toes on my left foot started twitching pretty regularly throughout the day. When it kept twitching until late last August, I went to a neurologist and he did an EMG/nerve conduction that came out normal. He also had me get a brain, t-spine, and c-spine MRI (each of them w/o contrast), all of which came out normal (I did a closed, 1.5T machine for all three of the MRIs).

We're waiting the results of my blood test, but a few weeks ago, before I had the MRIs, a couple of the toes on my left foot started to tingle/buzz/get a creepy crawly sensation a few times a day. It has typically been after I've been walking for a bit, then the sensation stops. So now I'm very, very concerned about this tingly/buzzing sensation across my left foot and am afraid it could be MS.

I wish I had gotten my MRIs on a 3T as now I'm afraid there are lesions that just didn't show up on the 1.5T. I have no other symptoms, otherwise, such as numbness, dizziness, or visual symptoms. I'm just really at a loss as to what else it could be.

Thanks so much in advance for any guidance you could give. I'm just so worried.

Hi graciepkg and welcome to NeuroTalk.

Foot tingling and twitching could be due to many different things. There is no symptoms exclusive to MS. A 1.5T is very capable of showing lesions.

Maybe your blood work will give you some answers. Just so you know, there is no blood test that will indicate MS as a possible cause. All blood work is used for ruling in/out other possible causes.

A couple of thoughts that may or may not be helpful

(1) you might consider seeing a podiatrist (foot Dr.)

(2) You might talk to your Dr. about having an x-ray and/or MRI of the Lumber spine (Lower back). This would not be for MS but possible back problems that could account for the foot tingling and twitching.

Take care.
