Arachnoiditis: Trying to find a specialist

I will ask a question again and my apologies if this was posted already
I would like to know if anyone with symptomatic arachnoiditis diagnosed through MRI has had a normal EMG
I know my pain, stiffness, numbness, tingling. My new neurologist it seems, is trying to convince me I should not have any of it with the normal EMG

My EMG was not terrible, but not completely normal. After getting hit by a car while walking, I got a whiplash concussion with a brain bleed. I was not diagnosed with Arachnoiditis for over a year after an MRI of my spine. My symptoms are burning feet and leg pain, and electric shocks all over. I am taking gabapentin at 600 mg a day and it relieves the pain somewhat, but I can't handle any higher dose. Loopy and memory issues. I need to find a neurologist that knows something about this. Very frustrating.
