Slight numbness in left side arm, face, leg
About a year ago I began experiencing a slight numbness in my left arm and leg. I had an MRI done and my doctor said   he found a couple small marks on my brain and did not know what they were so he sent me to a neurologist. She said they were unremarkable but could possibly be MS and ordered a spinal MRI. That found nothing but a couple of bulging discs, one in my neck and one more towards the lower back. I also had a number of blood tests that showed nothing. She said the bulging discs and anxiety that I obviously have now from all this could be contributing to the numbness. She told me to relax and come back if the symptoms worsened. Once I realized that I wasn't having a stroke or anything I did relax and the symptoms virtually disappeared which made me believe that it was mostly anxiety. Recently the symptoms have returned at times and i have had a strange lightheadedness with small irritating shooting pains in my head and a tightness in my neck. Also the numbness has spread to my left cheek on occasion. It seems to happen more when I'm thinking about it so I feel like it is hopefully my anxiety coming back along with my back acting up. My insurance was denied recently so I am hoping I can get any advice before trying to spend my own money and seeing my neurologist again. Thanks.
