Just as an update. I saw expert Boston neurologist. Had a fairly good exam. He assured me that I did not have MS. He felt my unilateral facial numbness (3 episodes, first with double vision) were a classic migraine equivalent presentation. I've never been a migraine sufferer, but as he explained, as we age (I'm 52), the migraines may not involve pain, but because of neuron network mix- up, may present as sensory. He reviewed my report of non-contrast MRA/MRI and states it is normal: no vascular problems or lesions(he did not look at CD copy). He didn't comment on my previous 7 day vertigo w/vomiting, intense itching, and I didn't get the chance to talk about any other sx. He wasn't impressed with elevated inflammation markers(CRP,ESR). He thinks my right sided leg weakness and numbness, my perineal numbness (is a nerve root problem stemming from my known lumbar degeneration changes. He didn't seem concerned about my Vit D deficiency (I have been on 50,000 u weekly for 7 months), and my current levels has gone from 10 to 16. He stated that he sees about 3 patients everyday that he feels present with migraine equivalent (ME) and left it at that. He offered EMGs, but I declined, since the pinprick tests seemed fine to me. I'm about 90% confident that this may be the problem, and I'm going to go on an anti-migraine diet. Time will tell. I will track sx, eat healthy, continue my yoga, and get on with life. If any other concerning sx persist, I'll check back with him, as he suggested I do. This was my first neuro exam. I wanted to post this for anyone else undx'd and worrying about sx.
Forward the best. One step at a time. Blessings to all of you here on this forum, as you are all wonderfully supportive. I'm going to check out the migraine forum as well.
