Ive been feeling tingling sensation in all left side of my

Resolved Question:

I've been feeling tingling sensation in all left side of my body and face for months now. The sensation lasts for 3 -5 seconds. Also sometimes I get partial loss of vision from my right eye. Now I'm feeling sharp pain lasting for 2 seconds with intervals of 7-10 minutes. The pain starts near my right eye and shoots until the back of my head. Is this serious? Or normal headaches?

Dr. Phil, MD :

?

Customer: My moms cousin
Dr. Phil, MD :

I see. That is what I am worried about

Dr. Phil, MD :

I think you need an MRI and to see a neurologist to rule out MS

Customer: Does MS start with these kinds of short headaches?
Dr. Phil, MD :

More the neurological symptoms and the vision problems

Customer: And is losing half of my vision related?
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes the tingling and the vision loss.

Dr. Phil, MD :

that is more worrisome for MS

Customer: i see
Dr. Phil, MD :

Yes, it could just be your headaches changing (which can happen) but MS needs to be ruled out

Customer: Is MRI different from CT scan?
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes

Customer: Okay , any other possibilities?
Dr. Phil, MD :

No, I don't think so. Just the migraines changing

Dr. Phil, MD :

which can happen

Customer: Ok
Dr. Phil, MD :

Any more questions for me Amenah?

Customer: Yeah, I'm taking seroxat or praxil for anti depression, could it be a side effect?
Dr. Phil, MD :

yes, that is possible

Customer: but the vision problems I had long time before

ok. If it didn't come with the medicine then it is probably not from that
