I just got home from seeing a Neurologist. My Primary referred me as ppossible MS. Symptoms - Complex migraines 20 years, virtigo, right arm goes number, right upper lip goes numb, leg pain, blurred vision, essential tumor. He gave me some tests and I think I failed two. The nose to finger tip test - couldn't do that without finger shaking. Then he had what looked like a tuning fork and put it on the top of my foot and then I was to state when I could not feel the vibration anymore. On both feet I said the vibration stopped but when he put the turning fork to my elbow, I could still feel the vibration. What does this mean. He ordered MRI and MRA of the brain, and then wants to see me in a week after the tests.View Thread
Thank you for your response. It is hard not to worry. I work very long days in a small cubical which lends time for your mind to wonder. I am alone alot and have had three very bad bouts of vertigo in the last few days which scares me to no end. I just need answers. Thank you again.View Thread
