MS fears wll not go away

No matter how hard I try, I just can't put these intense worries about MS to bed
For the past 15 months I've had all sorts of tingling, numbness and twitching, that
come and go throughout the day.
Now, finding this site has been a real God send and with a negative brain MRI and EMG
last year, I could reassure myself that this is probably something benign.
The problem I have is with some very specific symptoms which I occassionaly have,
which are linked very heavily with MS.
Firstly, although not a classical MS L'hermittes sign, I do occassionaly get sensations/tingling
in various distal locations when I bend my neck forward.
I also find that when I exercise and I get very hot, I tingle more. I've read that this is a very common
sign in MS and although it is usually connected to visual issues or fatigue, can also cause a worsening
of sensory symptoms.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated as this has really taken over my life.
