I am a 27 year old male and haven't had any health problems that I know of.. About two weeks ago I began having numbness in the right side of my face and right arm.. Really more of a tingling sensation that complete numbness.
I saw a nurologist the other day and he said my reflexes were brisk.. I had to have a brain mri and c spine mri.. the brain mri came back normal.. but he says i have a abnormality with the c spine mri.. he told me there was a something there.. could be inflammation or could possibly be a tumor.. i have to have a spinal tap next week.
i am really freaking out.. is this very serious? what are some other things it could be besides a tumor.. the doctor is an hour away and told me this over the phone.. he said he wasn't exactly sure... the spinal tap should tell me..
