Throughout the past three years have had varying degrees of buzzing/numbness throughout the body along with muscle stiffness. Have had every test imaginable including 3 MRI's of the brain, EMG test, Full blood work, Heavy Metals, Thyroid and have show nothing.

Lately the symptoms are very unmanageable. The numbness have moved over to the neck shoulders throat area and my entire head feels way too heavy for my neck to support. Whichever direction I lean in, my head wants to fall in that direction. I have also had TMJ during this time and my head has perched a bit forward causing difficulty in swallowing and breathing.

Neurologists cannot seem to help me since MRI's are clean and neurological exams are fine.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Has any doctor looked at the possibility of an infectious agent causing this? Some viruses can be neuro toxic and this can produce many strange neurological anomalies. Have you has a second opinion on your case? Sometimes a second opinion can prove useful.

Have you had MRA imaging of your neck? I had similar problems, everything was clear until the neck scan then diagnosed with carotid artery dissection.
Good luck with getting an answer.
