Head has numbness and tingling with headaches, have thyroid eye disease, anxious. What is wrong?

Hi- I am a 34 year old female.I have been having occasional slight numbness and tingling sensation on right side Of head. It first started dec 17 and lasted Through dec 18th. I feel I ve had very Mild headache or different sensation in that area off and on. Today is 1/6/13 and I have it again. Background info: I was in 3 car accidents with whip lash in October. Wasn t haven t this sensation back then. Also, I have been under a lot Of stress for various various reasons past few months. I also have thyroid eye disease (from Graves disease ) and recently went for MRI of Orbits. It did show T2 hyper intense foci non specific in left frontal periventricular matter. I went to neurologist on dec 8th and he said just to follow up with MrI in 6 months b/c I didnt have Symptoms of anything. Would the MrI of orbit i had done in early Dec have shown anything on right side that I am feeling? In other words, does it show entire brain? Should I be concerned or going back to doctor? Also- could Any of above factors or anxiety Cause this? Honestly, I am normally health and like to exercise but I am Very concerned if exercise will make Worse. Any advice or help will be greatly appreciate!! Thank you. Sharon

The symptoms you are facing can be post concussion and usually take time to go. Get your thyroid profile done regularly. The orbit MRI can show the entire brain as usually the area under study to taken to include entire brain especially in those patients which have some finding in orbit.
