Hi. I wonder if there is a neurologist out there who could offer something about my symptoms. For about 3 months, for at least 40% of the time, my left side of my face has been numb. In addition, in the last week or so, I have had periods of blurred, strange vision, mild headaches in the base of my skull, my neck, and especially when I bend down. These are all on the left side. I get nauseous before getting the headaches and generally am feeling somewhat lousy most of the day. Rest seems to relieve it somewhat. Also, I have this feeling that my whole left side of my head is heavy. I am also, during these instances, having increased bowel movements and urination, maybe from anxiety? It is also difficult to concentrakte and I feel lethargic. I just had an MRI of my brain and neck and it was normal, taken in the ER. I am really frustrated with all this and any support and ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
