Numbness on right side - arm & leg

I am a 37 y/o female that has experienced numbness on the right side of my body - my arm, hand and leg. This is a problem I've had a while and ignored thinking it would go away. I do not have numbness on my face (as I've seen in other posts). I wouldn't say it's painful, however is more of an annoyance. Have been to dr. and had EMG and MRI - with and w/o contrast. No problems there. Dr. does not know what it could be and stated they could take nerve out to determine if there's damage or the other option is a spinal tap, which I'm against.   Has anyone else experienced similiar situations and if so, what was done to resolve the problem??

I have been seeing a neurogolist, which is who requested the MRI be performed. I'm wondering if this isn't a pinched nerve in the neck. My question is what type of dr. can determine this?

do you have numbness on the right side of your thorax as well? it maybe a spinal cord tumor in the spinothalamic tract.  A neurologist is still the best one to see.  try looking for a new and better neurologist.  hope you get better.
