MRI results good and also confusing

I’m 26, think I’m healthy-ish. I noticed my right eye was involuntarily crossing, it then followed with symptoms like double vision and headaches, I went to A&E and was given an MRI brain scan the next day. The doctor called me a day after the scan and told me they couldn’t explain the reason for these symptoms. Okay sure.  

However  the scan didn’t show abnormalities, and the doctor asked me if I had and issues when I was born. I don’t think I did and my mum said the same. The doctor said it didn’t seem like an imminent risk and something about being benign. The plan is to arrange another MRI for 2 months time and a referral to the optometrist.

So I’m feeling a bit worried but also happy.
Anyone been through this, appreciate it!

It could simply be an eye muscle issue that went unnoticed. My son has it..nystagmus. In his case, on occasion, his eye can appear crossed, particularly if trying to focus straight ahead.

Hello~When I was around 6 years old, my left eye would turn in, it was very noticeable, my mom took me to the ophthalmologist and he said it was a "tired eye" but not serious. I am 62 now, and at times, it still does it when very stressed or I don't get enough sleep. I wouldn't worry about it, I am sure it is just an eye muscle issue, if you still worried see the eye specialist which is an ophthalmologist. Oh, I will also add that I was given glasses back then as well to help, they were bi-focal, I was the only 6 year old in school with them, but it didn't bother me, I don't know if they helped much however.
