Headache and leg tremors, should I be worried?

Hello guys!

I have a little big problem, a persistent pain when I touch my head on the left side, seemingly struck me, and I feel like a current in the left ear.
I traveled abroad a few days and I did not sleep very much, it could be a trigger?

I want to mention that in every morning when I'm thirty and before I sleep I feel tingling in the knees and feet (as a tremor) only then,  the rest of this day I don't have these symptoms. Tremors do not really exist but I feel something is wrong. Head hurts when I touch the left side only in the same period.
I have several cases that I "suspect" the symptoms:
1. I've not slept enough to last 4-5 days (I think half of what would have)
2. I took a shower, but I dry very well and we went outside where he was a bit cold and windy
3. Because of stress (exams)
I'm on the verge of going to the doctor, can you give an answer about concrete?

Thank you, I looking forward to your response.

Hi there. Your symptoms are suggestive of multiple sclerosis. It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs. Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc. The treatment is essentially limited to symptomatic therapy so the course of action would not change much whether MS has beenic, diagnosed or not. Apart from clinical neurological examination, MRI shows MS as paler areas of demyelination, two different episodes of demyelination separated by one month in at least two different brain locations. Spinal tap is done and CSF electrophoresis reveals oligoclonal bands suggestive of immune activity, which is suggestive but not diagnostic of MS. Demyelinating neurons, transmit nerve signals slower than non-demyelinated ones and can be detected with EP tests. These are visual evoked potentials, brain stem auditory evoked response, and somatosensory evoked potential. Slower nerve responses in any one of these is not confirmatory of MS but can be used to complement diagnosis along with a neurological examination, medical history and an MRI in addition, a spinal tap. An abnormal EEG could have various causes like brain tumor, attention problems, cerebral infarction, head injury, enceplalitis, migraines, seizure disorders and sleep disorders.Therefore; it would be prudent to consult your neurologist with these concerns. Take care.
