I’m sorry you’re experiencing this! It sounds really frustrating, especially when you’re trying to study or be productive! I hope your neurologist gets to the bottom of this soon.

@OrchidsandCandles:  I’m glad you’re getting it looked into! I’m super impressed by how cool you are about it. I have health-based anxiety, and I wish I could look at things as rationally as you are. I hope it’s just a pinched nerve!

Sorry to hear about the flare!  Have you had the MRI yet, or are you still waiting?

Sorry you are experiencing this, it sounds truly horrible and scary! I read your other thread and see your B12 levels are normal. Do you know the actual number your B12 came out at? Just a suggestion but some people need to maintain a higher level of B12 than the NHS recommends to function correctly. As an example: The lab that tests my B12 sets the lower limit of around 190 but I was experiencing many neurological symptoms at 239.

Obviously if your level is a lot higher then disregard this suggestion!

I really hope you find an answer soon.

Oh man! That really sucks! I hope you get your answer soon. I am the same way… I fret more over getting the RIGHT answer. I need to know what the problem is correctly first. Then I can start fretting about the other stuff.

I stumbled upon your original post and wanted to give my 2 cents.  I’m an RN for whatever that’s worth, but most of my advice is actually from personal experiences.  

Visual changes, intermittent numbness and headaches – has anyone suggested migraines???  They are very odd symptomatically sometimes and may get worse with stress.  I know it sounds very silly to think that your symptoms could be migranous, but it’s worse discussing with your doctor.  I occasionally get numbness in my hands with migraines.  

Also – I have a herniated disc in my neck and had really bad right sided radiculopathy with numbness, so an MRI wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

What is the prevalence of Lyme Disease in the UK?  For unexplained symptoms my mind automatically goes there, because I had it, but got really lucky and caught it early.  Have you/anyone looked into or enquired about it yet?
