Possible: If all work ups have not found any underlying problems for your symptoms, it will be a good idea to get evaluated psychiatrically. The stress of being medically screened sometimes can be so overwhelming for some, that even after no diseases are found, the worry continues. Talking to a psychiatrist may be helpful. Good luck. ...Read more

Mixed bag: This web article is on point: http://www.dizziness-and-balance.com/disorders/central/pvm.htm About half of normal folks over 65 have T2 abnormalities (white spots). Folks in their 40s with migraines can also present this way. It is nonspecific though so a repeat MRI in a patient with continued symptoms could be considered, mostly since there is little risk due to MRI in patients who can have them ...Read more

Can eye twitching be related to Trigeminal Neuralgia? I have TN but I'm noticing more twitching than ever on one side of my face, not just pain.
Complex: You are young to have trigeminal neuralgia, but you describe "twitching" which could be myokymia. If involves most of face, it would be facial myokymia, and you need imaging of your brainstem area. This is NOT a usual association unless you have an inflammatory brain disorder, or focal problems in base of brain. A neurological evaluation is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dilated eye exam determined 20/20 vision and no other problems but some floaters. Dr. Says not to worry. Why all of the sudden noticing them?
Sometimes I have left eye blurriness with/without headaches. Doc scheduled appt. With neurologist on the 5th. Is this tumor related? Migraines?
Your doctor can expl: The doctor you have seen already can explain why he is sending you to a neurologist. It may be just for treating your migraine. On the other hand he may have noticed some neurologic signs to be concerned about. I would not worry about any tumors unless they have done complete testing and told you more. Brain tumors are quite rare and would have much more in the way of symptoms than you have. ...Read more
