Colleen, I hate to break it to you but this sounds like the same thing that happened to me about 6 years ago. I Started out with a terrible headache and then got extremely blurred vision and then numbness on my right side extremities. The CAT scan was useless but the MRI proved to show some irregularities and then a spinal tap confirmed that I have M.S.
I don't want that this should scare you, but what you describe does not sound like a cluster. I went to the ER for three days in a row and they only gave me oxygen each time. Finally I made an appointment to a renowned Neurologistin the area. He told me that I either had a stroke, brain tumor or M.S.
My recommendation to you is that if you get a worse sensation of tingling or worse blurred vison, go see a neurologist.
God bless! Hope things work out and I will pray for you.
