My doctor thought we should, "take a look at your brain and make sure it's normal." When he said that I immediately thought of my brothers and how they would enjoy that quote. So, an MRI of my brain with and without contrast was scheduled.
About a week ago the bottom of my feet started tingling. Along with that came sharp, jolt like pains in my left leg. By the time I got to the Dr. the tingling was all over my feet and in my hands.
An MRI is interesting. They fasten you onto a sliding table that takes you into a long cylinder tube. Then the noise begins. A lot of tapping, groaning, and whirring even after ear plugs to help dull the noise. Twenty minutes later they pulled me out to give me the contrast injection. I was then placed in the tube for another 10 minutes. And then I was done. Mostly painless, and mostly boring.
Friday I received the results. I have a cyst in my sinus that will have to one day be removed, but that has nothing to do with tingles. My blood tests came back normal. And my brain is also normal, but normal is relative, right?
A few days after the MRI the tingling has vanished just as suddenly as it came. If I start to tingle in the bad way, not the good way, then I am to go straight to a neurologist. I guess my primary care provider doesn't want to deal with my normal again!
