Looking for some help

21 year old Male

I have not been diagnosed with MS but I have had some weird sensory symptoms the last few months. It started with a cold wet feeling on my face that could happen on both sides and come and go throughout the day many times. It went away for about a month and I felt great and then it slowly came back. Now it is more like a water stream feeling on both temples that can drop down my cheek on both sides. Again, this can happen randomly many times a day and sometimes I dont feel a thing and sometimes it can happen on both sides, one side, or both sides at the same time in the same place. I also have this crawly feeling on my skin sometimes. My doctor diagnosed me with health anxiety because of a bad bout of it in the summer for a few months and he thinks these symptoms are all stress related but he ordered me an MRI for Jan 3rd to ease my mind. What do you guys think? I am not sure if I should have posted here and I am sorry if I have offended anyone. thank you.

You’ve not offended anyone, I’m pretty certain of that. This place is not just for those who’ve been diagnosed but also for people who are worried ms could be on the cards, even if they’ve been told otherwise so you can stay put for as long as it suits. Your symptoms sound dodgy but could caused by an endless number of things. Nice one on your gp referring you for MRI, it’s a little diagnostic box ticked and I’m sure a clear result will do just as the doctor suggested. So get through Xmas, eat drink and be merry (if you can) and then have the MRI in January and take things from there. Lots of luck to you.

hi christian

i’m sure the MRI will be fine.

however you are so young and need to find out what is causing your symptoms.

so if the neuro can’t do anything ask your gp what else it could be.

cherry tree is right, eat drink and be merry!

all the very best
