Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I quite often suffer from feeling numbness in the part of my head, face, and hand. I also quite often feel something like weak convulsions in the head. Those are very often with a headache. I am also very sensitive to the light and temperature changes. Those very often cause very strong headache and tearing. When there is cold outside, for it becomes difficult to speak. While walking sometimes for me it is very difficult to keep the coordination. I often feel trembling and weakness in the face and hands. I have visited neurologist a few years ago and magnetic resonance tomography was indicated. However, I have not gone for this medical examination. I have just started taking indicated medicines Tanakan. It helped me a little bit, but all those symptoms have stayed. I live with it for quite a long years. What illness it may be? What treatment and indications would be in this case?

Answered by Dr. Aida Abaz Quka

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read carefully your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to different possible causes like fibromyalgia, vitamin D or vitamin B12 deficiency, tension-type headache related to psychological stress, multiple sclerosis, small vessel disease of the brain, etc. Tanacan can help improve blood circulation in the brain. I would like to know your age and past medical history. I also agree with your doctor on the recommendation for a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as it is very important to exclude some of the above possible causes. I would also recommend performing some other blood laboratory tests like complete blood count for anemia, vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels, plasma levels for possible deficiency, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for inflammation, thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
