For years I've experienced tingling in my face and scalp. Thought this happened to everyone. I recently went to a neuro because the tremor I've had for years has gotten worse. I was told many years ago essential tremor and this is what this neuro said also. I also have restless leg for many years . I've been recently experiencing a shaky left leg but for some reason worse in the morning and also tingling in the leg off and on all day. NOw I am 50 and wondering if leg problems are not from sciatica. But I had an mri done and it said bilateral posterior frontal lobe lesions. Impression was migraine(don't suffer from this) Lyme(negative for test) or ishemic changes of gliosis foci. When I went to neuro I never mentioned about my legs or scalp tingling . I have an appointment to discuss mri next month. I also have urininary incontinence for a number of years. Maybe this is also just my age.
weeks ago I got a spasm that went from my neck to jaw to ear to head. Lasted minutes. It happened two more times within a few months. Does my mri sound like ms or my symptoms. Thank you all. I'm also worried about stroke due to the possible ishemic changes radiologist suggested the lesions might be. I have low blood pressure and low cholesterol.

I am not a doctor but I think MS could be a possibility based on what you are describing.  You definitely need to follow up with a neurologist and make sure you mention all of the symptoms you are having.  Some people find it helpful to keep a diary of symptoms.
I hope you do not have MS, but if you do, try to have a positive attitude and work on developing a support system.  A diagnosis of MS is not the end of the world.  It sucks, yes, but you learn how to make adjustments and cope with it.  
This can be a good place to vent, ask questions, etc.  Just keep in mind that many people are busy and you may have to wait a few days before someone responds.
Good luck and God bless. 

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).
