I am a little concerned and wondering if anyone recognizes these symptoms?

About 6 mos ago, I started having these "attacks" that involved feelings of fatigue, vertigo, tremor, muscle weakness, feeling of numbness on the top of my head or outer arm.

I had a couple of days during which I felt completely "disconnected" from anything, as if wading through a pool. A couple of times, my eyes suddenly seemed to cross and I had double vision for about 5 minutes.

I was on Minocycline, a long-term antibiotic, at the time, so the Dr. took me off of it. Also, ordered an MRI with contrast.

The MRI showed one small "bright spot" and the neurologist told me this is normal in people with migraines (which I have). No mass or multiple lesions.

After going off the antibiotic, I felt better for a couple of months. No noticeable symptoms.

I went back on the antibiotic (for acne -- nothing else worked) and began to have panic attacks (worried about "symptoms" returning). Then, one day I came home and had another attack -- all symptoms mentioned before, plus ears ringing.

Went back off minocine, but continued to have these weird problems spasms of my lower lip and bridge of nose. My throat always felt like it was pulsing, as did my sinuses on either side of my nose. I was having a hard time breathing.

Then, one day my upper lip was weak and slightly numb all day. A couple of days later, my left arm was weak and slightly numb all day. I dismissed the lip, thinking sinus problems. Dismissed the arm, thinking it was a result of weight lifting. One day, I did have this unreal feeling of deja vu all day, like I was remembering something but couldn't figure out what it was. I have heard this is a symptom of brain cancer.

I am supposed to have a follow-up MRI, so now I'm considering having it early. I am SO SCARED this might be a brain tumor!!! I am only 27, and I have always been healthy until now! I have not had any nausea or seizures. The MRI had contrast and did not show a mass, so I should probably stop worrying, but I can't help it! Can anyone suggest anything?
