Ct scan of the brain is normal. Numbness left cheek, left side of head, left arm and leg feel numb sometimes. Sensitivity to sound, too loud... ?

Numbness: I'm sorry that you are having all of these symptoms. You obviously have been to see someone in order to get a CT scan. Do you have a headache as well. You have some sensitivity to sound, we can't see the rest of your symptoms. If you haven't yet you need to see a neurologist, you probably need an MRI and an MRA or angiogram. You need someone to guide the ship of diagnosis to find out! ...Read more

Get moving: Prolonged immobility as you have described can result in local muscle or nerve compression. Break your 8-hour study days up by moving around every hour or so.

Good luck with your studies. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003206.htm ...Read more
