Default Should i worry?

Hi everyone! What a nice place!

I have a burning tongue, which brought me to my GP. After working through everything, she decided to send me for an MRI. Since that appointment half my left hand was numb for three days. And then on July 29, I woke up with my right forehead, eyebrow and associated scalp numb. That has not gone away.

I had optic nerve pallor about 15 years ago, but MRI and LP were normal.

I have a bit of a screwy neck which could be playing with my nerves. But that doesn’t explain the tongue.

My MRI is scheduled for November 14. Should I be worried about an MS diagnosis?

Any input most helpful!

Thanks,
Finnybelle

Overall I would not be worried based on symptoms of it being MS. The neck could be playing with the nerves in your mouth, but it could be thrush, dry mouth disease, vitamin deficiencies (iron, zinc, vitamin b 1,2,6,9 and or 12)
If you have dentures, allergies, acid reflux, different medications may cause it, grinding your teeth, biting your tongue, over brushing, too strong a toothpaste or mouth was, acid foods, stress.... I mean really an endless list of perfectly innocuous things which could be causing it. And it’s not a normal symptom of MS either so pretty sure you’re in the clear
