Thank you for that additional information.There are many possible causes for your symptoms.You may be suffering from a vascular issue, mass/compression problem or even a metabolic imbalance.It is also possible that this is something that has no specific cause (idiopathic) and will go away as suddenly as it appeared.....The only way to know what is going on would be to see a doctor in person for a complete examination, possibly some blood tests and/or imaging studies.If you want to get to the bottom of what is going on I would see your primary care MD first and see what she has to say. If necessary she might want to refer you to a neurologist for a more extensive workup.Does this make sense to you? It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. Dr. Rick MD FACS
