Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
Have you had any tests?
I have had some blood tests only because I asked my Dr to do them, all levels were fine like B-12 and no sign of muscle spasms. Normal physical neurologist tewt from the GP. I am very concerned that this could be MS as I have had on / off tingles over the years in my face. My GP seems certain that it's anxiety but the more I read into MS, the more it sounds like I have had some of these symptoms myself, especially the tingling, numbness.
have you had any blurry vision?
no blurry vision as far as I can remember, eyes have been checked, they are all ok. This is what my GP said rules out the fact that she thought it wasn't MS
however, after reading, not everybody has the problems with vision
I see, and what question about this would you like me to answer?
I would like to know if any symptoms I am mentioning could be related to MS and why my Dr would rule this out so quickly just because she saw no sign of weakness at the time. Also, my tingling etc in face, feet gets better when I stand up & walk around. Is this normal?
The symptoms may be due to an electrolyte abnormalityI cannot say why your doctor ruled it out so quickly, only your doctor can answer that
It is very unlikely to be due to MS, but only testing can say for sure, (an MRI)
The symptoms you have are not normal, but need further evaluation
Are you there?
Please respond if you can see my replies
yes I am
Are you having computer problems?
if it's unlikely to be ms, do you have any ideas of what other causes it could be?
I also have internal twitches or movements / buzzing inside my body which started about 2 months ago and I have had every day since
Please see my last question
some days it feels better & others worse. do you know what this could be?
No I am not having computer problems.
It took some time for you to respond when I asked if you were there
yes i am here awaiting a response to my last question
If you need to exit or leave for some time please inform me prior to doing so
no i don't need to leave
It may be due to an electrolyte abnormality, which would require blood tests to evaluateIt could also be due to compression of nerves as well
MS is still a possibility, but without visual problems it is less likely
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX know how the compression of nerves is diagnosed?
By an x ray and MRI of your spine
i am concerned that i have had vision problems but didn't take any notice at the time as maybe it didn't concern me but after reading up about ms, i am now wondering if i missed something.
do you know if the invisible twitches are related to ms at all?
The twitches may be related to MS, or any irritation of your nerves
You're very welcome

one more question, does sweating in hands or feet bring on tingling at times?
No, that is not likely to be the cause of tingling
