My name is k and I'm new here...first, just wanted to say I'm really glad for you that your MRI didn't show up any serious problems. I hope that it has given you some solace from the worrying :)
Second, you mentioned 'very strong neuro-type symptoms' and I wondered if you could shed some light on those? I too have some very peculiar symptoms which could be attributed to a neurological problem and I just can't believe they're not serious. I think to know of someone else suffering in a similar way to me would really help me.
Perhaps you could PM me rather than post your symptoms here if you'd prefer?
Me? I have very bad dizziness, bad shakes, mild disorientation, mild confusion, and a general feeling of not being with it. Also had some changes in sensation, as in less feeling in my face and hands than usual. This has been going on for some weeks and I am seeing a doctor about it. Blood tests have been normal except for a slightly raised haemoglobin level (doc said no cause for concern, but concern I certainly have!). I would expect a trip to the neurologist may be next, as the doc suggested if symptoms persist.
I may have a similar dilemma to you, though, I'm more concerned about the symptoms and how to make them go away because they're affecting my lifestyle, rather than needing to know what is wrong with me. So, yes, if it all comes back clear, I'm not sure how I am to rid myself of these symptoms, whether real or imagined!
Anyway, best wishes,
Welcome to HW. I am glad you found us. It does indeed sound like you need an appointment with a neurologist. I hope you feel free to post and ask questions. There are many here like you, without an diagnosis and looking for answers. We cannot diagnose you but we are happy to support you while you go through that process.
Love and prayers,
