Right arm numbness and left side of face numb. Cat scan was clear, blood tests were good. Doc is starting me on B12 injections. Can it be MS or other?
Sorry: CAT scan is virtually meaningless in defining presence or absence of MS lesions. You may have B-12 issues, but was it proven on your blood studies or are the shots for other reasons??
