Thank you for your question.

Since how long are you having these symptoms?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?

Please let me know.

Kind regards

5 to 6 weeks. No and no.

5or 6weeks. Off and on. Got a clean MRI on head and spine to rule out MS. No lesions. Stress?

Also having some twitches on my left bottom eye lid.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your reply.

If the MRI of the head and spine was clean that would rule out anything serious.

I am sure that the MRI also looked at the bones and discs of the spine, which can press on exiting nerves at times and cause the symptoms that you are having.

So a negative MRI is something that rules out all these problems.

I would, however, also do some blood tests like a thyroid test (TSH) along with a vitamin B12 level to make sure these are normal because at times these can also lead to the symptoms that you are having.

Once all these tests are normal only then I would attribute it to stress.

Stress can cause the symptoms that you are experiencing.

Those tests were done. MRI was to look for MS symptoms.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

Yes the MRI was to look for MS.

But MRI also looks at the discs and bones of the spine which the radiologist would have seen and ruled out for sure.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Left eye is blurry. Could be ON. Almost certain now. But no lesions from the MRI.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

MRI being normal rules out MS.

Have you had your eyes checked with an ophthalmologist as this could be due to a problem with the lens of your eye more than anything else.

Please rate me before we proceed.
