I am an adult neurologist and will try to answer your question
Hi. the symptoms you describe, especially the numbness all over your body, the light bothering your eyes, and the problems that occur when driving, in the face of a car accident, suggest PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder, and I would ask you how you feel internally, is your heart pounding? mind racing? in those instances?
This is highly unlikely to be a brain tumor, it could be a type of seizure, such as a temporal lobe seizure, where instead of losing conciousness and falling to the ground in convulsions, you can have "out of body experiences" feelings like you are drowning. As you have had a normal brain MRI scan, I would still suggest you see a neurologist about an EEG or electroencephalogram (brain wave test) to see if there are any abnormal electrical discharges from your temporal lobe area.
I would ask if anxiety, especially when driving, or in a car, plays a part in your symptoms???
please get back to me when online to discuss further, or rate my service if satisfied.

Hello, i basically flew out of the car into the concrete and lost my memory and had concussion. days after i felt great. Now since September i get random numbness in body like after i take a shower i get out, i dont even drive that much cause i cant feel my foot at times. In those instances i dont have my mind racing actually my ablation for tachardia fixed that issues. I start to forget stuff like i put the ice cream in the sink and cars seems to drive slower then usual, five minutes seems slow or forever. Sometimes i get flowng black dots but thats probably from retina. Especially since september i get huge headaches. Im just worried its my spine or neck I just want that numbness to go away and months pass seems it doesn't. Maybe i have nerve peuropathy or spine pressing on nerve but that i read only would numb one particular area i have the whole body. Couple days ago my right eye drooped smaller and i had huge headache. Shaking my hands sometimes doesnt make numbness go away.
well honesty the last blood work was done only last june after car accident an i already had low white cells, any meaning to low white cells? i need to go re do it soon again the blood work.
yah but migraines wouldnt be causing this hearling loss eye brightness and body numbness....
