Hello and thank you for your question.
The buzzing feeling and twitching feeling is constant or only when you try to sleep or while sleeping?
okay. Besides that any vision issues, bladder problems?
okay. So it is more likely related to anxiety and not MS.
In MS you would have weakness, vision problems, bladder problems.
No most common symptom is having optic neuritis, bladder problems and weakness in limbs.
Moreover it would not disappear.
okay. So you need to relax as you do not have MS.
Take the medication for anxiety for a month and you would feel better.
Based on your description you do not fall in category for evaluating for MS.
No not likely. Anxiety can manifest any psychological and physical symptoms
Also get evaluated for Restless leg syndrome.
Sometimes iron deficiency can lead to RLS.
So it is anxiety.
Because your reflexes are normal and so is your blood work.
Your reflexes would not be normal as well in MS.
You need MRI of your brain.
He told you to do so to check if you have balance issues or not.
As you have in your mind that you have MS, getting MRI of your brain can only relieve your anxiety.
Anxiety can make you dizzy.
Only way to relieve your doubt is to have MRI of your brain.
Based on what you have mentioned you do not have MS.
In MS, if you had symptoms you would need steroids to prevent the flare ups.
You would not able to walk and would have pain.
I understand your concern, but based on what you've told me so far it does not imply MS at this point. Your symptoms are generally very vague and can occur for many benign reasons. The typical presentations for MS include persistent weakness or persistent numbness of the legs/arms. MS can also presents a optic neuritis where a person will have vision that is constantly affected where they are not able to see clearly. Once these symptoms occur, a MRI of the brain and spine is ordered with and without contrast. If there are active lesions on the MRI then one can say that MS is suspected. Your symptoms are transient and do not imply MS.
Numbness means that you can not feel when something touches or you touch a part of your body. A lack of sensation.
The fact that it is pins and needles and not a numbness is sufficient to say that by itself it does not mean you have MS. I've had many patients who complain of pins and needles when they become excited or anxious about something. As soon as the period of anxiety passes, their symptoms improve.
Which is the reason I'm suggesting that it is not MS.
If you still want to get a MRI, you can seek a second opinion. May be that doctor can help you get a MRI
