Hi Holly,

I too was sent for a brain MRI, in Oct 2002, because of facial pins and needles (at least that's how I described it to the docs). It was usually only on the right side of my face but more recently my nose on occasion as well and muscle twitching around the eye and or eyelid and or jaw line which was occurring almost daily to varying degrees. The last few months it hasnít been happening too often. This has been going on since June of last year. Oh...and at the time I was not on any meds. My neuro said the MRI showed nothing that could be causing my facial symptoms, and kinda left it at that. He has not looked into it any further. As you can see by my signature below, I do have some cervical problems. I tend to feel that this is the cause...but then what do I know. Please keep us posted....I am curios to see what your neuro says...this has kinda been a worry for me as well...I donít think Iíve been much help but at least know youíre not alone.

Take Care, :wave:
