I'm hoping someone can offer me some advice.
A few months ago I started experiencing tingling in the little finger and ring finger of my left hand which then travelled to the left side of my face, mostly the jaw line and lips. I also have tingling in my left foot (which tends to be there most of the time). I also had loss of peripheral vision (different eyes at different times), noises sounded strange and smells were enhanced. I felt as though a headache would come on but on sitting in a dark room for around twenty minutes would ease the symptoms . The one day that I did have a headache after it was gone I felt totally exhausted and very spaced out. I did have a viral infection when I first became symptomatic - cough, sore throat etc. It was happening every other day for around 6 weeks but now all I have is the foot tingling and some numbness that comes and goes across my left eyebrow and a strange feeling that my eyebrow is wet?? I have had migraines in the past in my first trimester of pregnancy and knowing now what migraines are think I can recall having one or two in my teens around the start of puberty. I have been to see a neurologist who said my neuro exam was fine and has diagnosed aura without headache. I am awaiting results of an MRI and am getting anxious about this. I have been feeling great but did experience some dizziness the past few days. The only other thing I would like to add is my eyesight has worsened very slightly in that I have to wear a weak prescription most of the time. I have had my eyes checked and all was deemed healthy.
I am a 34year old female with two young children (one of which I started to wean from breastfeeding around the time of this starting), work full time and drive a lot and use VDUs a lot.
I would be grateful for any comments and advice.
