Abnormally shaped brain lesion

Hi everyone,

I'm currently experiencing a range of symptoms - pins and needles in legs, arms, back and face, balance issues, a feeling of being spaced out, pain in legs and breathlessness.This has been constant for 8 months with no remission.

I have had 3 neuro exams - all fine except slight wobbling on the Romberg.

I had an MRI on my brain which I was told was fine and was discharged from my neuro who stated that I had a neuro muscular type virus which was being exacerbated by anxiety. I've googled A LOT - and feel that my symptoms do fit MS or B12 deficiency.

Last night I went to see my GP and he checked my radiology report - it stated there was an abnormally shaped lesion on my scan. Does not mention MS. My neuro did not tell me this. Obviously I'm now really worried. My Neuro did not order any further testing and I don't know what to do now! Any ideas??? MY GP says it's nothing to worry about as if it was I would not have been discharged.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. An abnormally shaped lesion on my scan does not mean MS and is likely to be clinically insignificant since it was not mentioned by your neurologist. With normal neurological exam, one might consider looking at other possible causes of the symptoms such as micronutrient deficiencies, hormonal/ endocrine imbalance, electrolyte abnormalities, stress/ anxiety, inflammations, a few autoimmune conditions etc. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by an internist and depending on the cause(s) diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
