Tests for MS: No single test helps diagnose of eliminate MS. A normal MRI however is a strong vote against MS as the cause. Floaters in the eyes and dizziness are not very strong signs of MS either. Tingling in the hands has many causes. For example, high blood sugar causes some of these symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome may cause symptoms in the hands. I doubt MS is the cause, but you should keep looking.

Very Low: Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks the insulation around myelinated nerves. A characteristic finding on MRI would be 'white matter lesions'. However, in fact MS is more of a clinical diagnosis with the most common presentation being visual changes with observable swelling of the optic nerve. It is most commonly found in women of norther european descent.
Dr. Bennett Machanic

Not concerning: The tingling hands could represent carpal tunnel syndrome, the eye floater have no relationship to MS, and the dizziness could be due to many issues, such as anemia, thyroid problems, medication reactions, and inner ear issues. MS quite unlikely here.

I have just had back surgery to take pressure off my nerves 3 days ago. Is it normal to have muscle pain in your leg while it heals?

Dr. Chintan Sampat

Yes: It can be normal to have some residual pain in the lower extremity after back surgery. You should notice less intensity in the pain and hopefully less numbness, tingling, weakness, etc. If you notice worsening pain, and changes in bowel/bladder function, worsening numbness/tingling, or other issues, please contact your surgeon.
A 20-year-old female asked:

I am 32 weeks pregnant I noticed sudden swelling in my face, have had a headache for the past few days, im very dizzy, blurred vision.My BP now 177/87 ?

This cannot wait: Symptoms of headache and dizziness accompanied by rising blood pressure and swelling can be associated with preeclampsia. That can be a problem for the pregnant woman and her baby, especially if preterm. Calling an OB doctor is what is recommended even at night, especially if the local nursery cannot provide care for a premature baby in case delivery is needed. If alone or cannot reach OB call 911.
