Hello my name is Travis. I' am a 28 year old male very active with exercise, sports, and eat very well. I have no history with brain tumors in my family, both sides. I have pretty bad allergies though, post nasal drip, constant plugged up nose, sneezing, sometimes watery eyes, etc.. Back in early February 2010 I had some slight tingly, low grade pins and needles in left foot and left hand. Also it sometimes went into my right foot just a little bit. Also I feel a little off, lightheadedness, I'm not falling over or stumbling, just that. Also low grade forehead headaches, come a go a few of them, possible from allergies..I went to see my main doctor in early March 2010 and told him, he ran 7 blood tsts on be including B12 deficiency. The complete exam :blood work, urine: all came back 110% Fine..everything was normal and great. Throughout Feb the tingling, pin/needles comes and goes, with lighheadedness around as well, I have no bad headaches, vomiting, seizures, or falling over.. So from the last week until now I have the tingling and pins..from 1 to 10 it would be a 2 or 3, not bad..and for the past week now my left calve has been feeling sore/fatigued/dull...I play around 11 hours of medium paces high tennis a week, and very active... So yesterday I seen a Neurologist and the physical exam he gave me, he said was 100% normal with sensation testing, balance, and eye movements, etc..my strength in arms and legs were good as well. He said it might be a nerve in arm and or leg...He is sending me for a MRI next week..He told me if he was a betting man he said it will be normal... What do you think the outcome will be??? What do you think on the MRI outcome in your mind? thanks for your time!!!
I forgot one other thing here. I had a complete eye exam last week and the doctor said I had 20/20 and my eyes were good with no problems. He looked behind the eye and said everything was clear....
As far as being a brain tumor, it all sound unlikely... but you only had seven (7) blood tests and did not probably cover hormones or inflammation (like CRP or SED). Muscle issues can be something like lactic acid - after all you are active and perhaps you have muscle issues or hormone issues that are not detected yet. Your B is fine - what about D, iron, magnesium, calcium etc.? TIBC? Iron overload, the most common genetic disorder - can cause this type of symptom.
* Fatigue (feeling very tired)
* Weight loss
* Abdominal pain
* Joint pain
I would look to get more testing to try to pinpoint what is the issue - so many things can cause headaches - I would look more on the hormones, muscles, minerals, etc.
