I thought I made this post yesterday evening (9/2), but it didn't register. However, here is what is going on and I need help. I have been having left facial tingling, tingling in the left thigh, twitching eyelids, movement on the left side of the head above the ear occasionally accompanied by a dull headache that can start anywhere from the top of the head, the back or the side. During these flares/episodes, I would sometimes have chest pain. What is of more concern is that these episodes produce a mild confusion/disorientation and somewhat impaired mobility/coordination. For instance, I could be washing a dish or reaching for a pen and it just seems like my arms (especially the left) is having a hard time carrying out the task. About a month ago while riding home on the subway, my left thumb and right forefinger just started jerking and twitching. It's like I'm short circuiting! Like my wires are crossed and I'm firing off wrong. I had a Stress/Echo which was unremarkable. There are no heart abnormalities which causes me to conclude that whatever is happening is inadvertently causing the chest pain.
My neuro ordered a MRI of the brain to r/o tumor and it came back fine. He then gave a diagnosis of pre-stage trigeminal neuraliga and prescribed Tegretol. Now, I don't have face pain just continuous tingling not to mention all the aforementioned symptoms don't line up with Trigem. So, I'm at a lost. Whenever I call the Doctor, it is as if I'm inconveniencing him and he has no clue of what is happening. I don't know if this is MS, Myastenia Gravis or what. Please help.:(
