Brain vs. Mind: Neurologists focus on the brain, psychiatrists on the mind. Based on your exam and diagnostics, your neurologist doesn't think that your symptoms are neurological in nature, which is a good thing. Although the symptoms are real to you, a psychiatrist can help you process their possible causes. You can always seek a 2nd opinion if doubtful. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/neurologicdiseases.html ...Read more

I have a sever soar throat and caugh and loss of voice. And congestion. Had bad. Acid reflex recently. Could it be  laryngitis?

Yes: Loss of voice is usually due to laryngitis it may last a couple of days but usually recovers without any complications. Treatment is supportive without the need of any medications. If however your sore throat gets worse with high fevers and increased cough you should see a physician for pharyngitis. This is also usually viral and does not need any medications, however rarely strep throat maybe diagnosed which does need antibiotics. ...Read more

Does norm EEG&MRI mean nothing is neurologically wrong w/ u even if you have ataxia,anomia,tremors,chronic low fever,tingling,pain,reflex loss &more?

No: There are many neurologic illnesses which can have a normal EEG and MRI. However, you have such a constellation of different symptoms that I could not even guess, in this format, what is happening to you. Please consider seeing a neurologist for a thorough evaluation and additional treatment recommendations. Take care, and stay healthy! ...Read more

Misunderstanding: I can't say who misunderstood what, but it does sound like it happened. Nothing in what you state raises the Dx of Schizophrenia. While anxiety and a somatization issue seem possible another opinion on reflexes, fever, etc is a good idea. See a psychotherapist for the anxiety and a Dr. to Dr. referral. It might help present your symptoms more clearly. Best! ...Read more
