Hi All... I had MRI taken last month. This is the second after a gap of almost two years. This too has come out normal. One point in the report that caught my attention is "Mylenation is normal". Is this normal to appear in the report. (It was not there in the last report by a different clinic). Can this be conclusive that my symptoms are not due to demylenation as suggested by one of the neurologists whom I consulted early on. My symptoms have been attacks of heaviness in the head with weakness of right arm and leg on and off over past several years. Twitching on left eye below lid. Lots of floaters in the eye. Occasional itching on the face which goes off after scratch. (This symptom I have read somewhere in the net that people whose face itches, can go on to develop MS later) Few attacks of sleep paralysis during my entire life. Slight numb and cold right leg during sleep which I think is not everyday. Thankyou all for your time.
Sleep paralysis is very common and not related to MS. Some people who have sleep paralysis have Narcolepsy...but not always. Sleep paralysis can also be caused by stress or your sleep cycle. You could do a sleep study and see if that sheds any light on this issue.

Face itching does not lead to MS. Not sure where you found that bit of information but it is false.

The majority of people with or without MS can have eye twitches. It can be due to eye fatigue, stress, and other things.

If you have not had an eye exam recently then you may want to make an appointment with an Opthamologist or Optometrist, either one could tell you if there is any concern regarding your vision and answer any questions about the eye floaters and twitching.

Although you can have MS with clear MRIs, the longer you go with normal MRIs the less likely MS becomes.

Snoopy gave you some good advice. "Myelination is normal" would mean that you do not have any problems with the insulation (myelin sheath) which protects your nerves. Had there been a concern, you probably would have read demyelination which would be more indicative of MS.

As you have indicated that you have ad sleep problems your entire life, you might look at getting an appointment with a sleep clinic where you can be monitored and a diagnosis can be ascertained as to the probable cause of your sleep problems. :angel:
