Please let me know.

Depression and anxiety are high. Very stressful job.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 months ago.

I personally think that increased anxiety and depression could be a factor that is causing your symptoms, as far as I am concerned. A lot of anxiety and depression can lead to a large number of nerve related symptoms like what you are experiencing.

However, having said that, I would like that you should have MRI of the brain and neck done to be sure it is normal.

Sometimes CT scan can miss things that MRI can pick up.

Do u have any idea what condition I may have?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 months ago.

I personally think that the most likely cause is a lot of stress.

However the thing that I would like to rule out with further tests is what is called as multiple sclerosis (MS).
