Update...saw neurologist
« on: May 25, 2014, 10:48:24 PM »
I went to see neurologist last week about my headaches and tingling in hands and feet. He said likely cause is pinched nerve or something else in neck. I had MRI of brain and neck last week. Will get results this week. He also ordered bloodwork to rule out MS. He didn't seem to think that was it, but wanted to cover all the bases. So, of course now I'm totally freaked out about that. I'm trying to avoid combing myself I have the MS symptoms. Honestly, I feel like I have more fibromyalgia symptoms than anything. Anyway, the not knowing is driving me crazy. I just want to feel like myself!!

The waiting for the results is horrible!  Hang in there.  I'm sure it's nothing catastrophic.

I would accept what your doc said at face value - he doesn't think its MS but it is his responsibility to check everything out. 

That being said, MS is not diagnosed via blood work alone (there is no single test for MS) so this just sounds like he's doing his due diligence and making sure everything is OK.
