Look, there is obviously more going on than meets the eye, and for you to have needed a head scan (I am presuming that the MRI was of the head) you must have had symptoms that were sever enough to warrant this diagnostic measure. The tingling you describe is not normal, so go back and ask the doctor again. Best wishes.

It is not a matter to be concerned about. Transient, normal change in intracranial pressure may be responsible for the feeling. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
