Numbness in left side, pain ,headache, eye sight changes. Lumbar puncture showed no bands. Advice

I have had numbness on the left side of my body for approx 6 weeks. Numbness is usally followed by left side pain, constant headaches, fatigue, eye site changes and a feeling of just not being normal. My PCP felt I had MS from a recent MRI, lumbar puncture showed no bands. I saw a specialist at OHSU and the Dr said to put MS on the back burner for now and refered me to nueromuscler specialist. I am getting tired of living in this body, please don't take that in the wrong contence, just would like some answers so I can get back to normal. thaks.

Thank you for posting your query.

The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) is usually straight forward on MRI. So, if it is possible to upload MRI reports, it would be useful.

Are your symptoms constant or episodic? What I mean, is your numbness persisting for past six weeks or coming for a few minutes and subsiding? The diagnosis differs in these two settings.

I assure you that once we have the required clinical and MRI data, we can make a diagnosis, and suggest you the correct treatment plans.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
