I have a hard time getting a diagnosis, and not sure what to do.
several month ago, i woke up one day seeing blurry with my left eye, went to the ER, and got checked by an ophthalmologist. Nothing wrong or abnormal. later that day, i started feeling numb in my left arm, no pain, normal strength and sensation, just numbness and pins and needles. Fearing a stroke, i went back to the ER, had a full check up, EKG, MRI, ect, and again, nothing.

I had several follow up visits, and pretty much all the conditions that could cause these symptoms have been eliminated. (diabetes, MS, brain tumor, stroke). so I'm happy i don't have any of these, but still don't have an answer, and has been asked to come back in a year.

symptoms are still present, but come and go.
does anyone have any idea what could cause that?
