Tingling over head, dull headaches, numbness in face, burning sensation on tip of fingers. MRI done

Hi just waiting on mri scan but neurologist wouldny hint at what she thought was wrong with me. I have been experiencing tingling over head, mainly left side. This has been going on for couple of months along with dull headaches across front of head. I have also been getting some numbness left side of face and buning sensation at end of fingers. This is on right hand. Please note numbness and burning happen frequently but lasts no longer then a couple of hours whereas the tingling in head is majority time.

Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are minor but we need to exclude a lesion in the brain.

There are various possibilties, such as demyelination (multiple sclerosis), ischemia (lack of blood flow), infections, tumors, etc.

All these conditions can be excluded by the MRI.

As of now, there is no need to worry, as you would benefit from appropriate treatment that can be started after the MRI report is available.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
