Pearl, I've been experiencing odd electrical sensations

Customer Question

Hello Pearl, I've been experiencing odd electrical sensations when moving my head forward and down. I've done some online searching and everything I see points to MS. I had an MRI done 3yrs ago for different MS symptoms and nothing was found on the MRI of the brain. Any thoughts?
JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I did suffer a concussion about 3 months ago, and have been on FMLA leave since for severe headaches and Nausea especially when using the computer or driving at night
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Yes MS is possible even with negative brain MRI scan. MRI scan is not used to establish dignosis of MS. MRI scan is used to support the diagnosis. Hence, you need to see a neurologist for further evaluation. On the other hand, these symptoms can be due to the anxiety disorder and recent concussion related. That is more likely. But clinical evaluation is recommended.
