Hi, I am just looking for some advice as I am scared an MS diagnosis may be on its way.
I had a brain MRI to rule out a growth on my auditory nerve due to pulsatile tinnitus on one side. I have had a few instances of tingling in my face on the same side lasting minutes only, but seem to be brought on when I raise my arms above my head. The tinnitus has now gone away. It has been nearly a year since I last had it.
I had a call from the ENT consultant to say that there was no growth on the MRI, but there were some white patches that were possible demyelination but it was not his area so would be referring me to neurology.
I am terrified as to what this means and have been on Dr Google which was probably not a good idea. I have had pins and needles today that seems to be lasting ages in my arm but not sure if that is just anxiety as my pins and needles started due to resting on my arm.
I have been told it’s likely to be quite a wait before I get an appointment. How do you stay positive as I can’t help but think the worst. My husband keeps telling me there could be other reasons but I am not sure how likely this is.
Anyone else had this experience, being tested for something else and having this finding? Wondering what will likely happen when I see the neurologist as the waiting is awful.
