Does anyone have these symptoms?

In December, I had a central retinal vein occlusion. Very scary as I am 31 years old. Following that, I started having pressure headaches and tingling in the back of my scalp, coupled with hand tingling. I attributed the headaches to anxiety over my situation. The headaches went away, but the hand tingling continued, along with foot tingling. I had MRI's of cervical spine and they found herniated disk and stenosis.

When I took the films to the neurosurgeon, most of my tingling had been gone for weeks (still mostly is, except when I cross legs). He discounted the herniation and stenosis and said he wanted brain MRI for MS and Chiari. It came back and showed some nonspecific white foci, meeting none of criteria for MS, and no Chiari (though I do have decreased CSF flow in some areas).

MY MAIN SYMPTOM NOW IS A FEELING OF PINCHED NERVES - It's in the side of my hands, my left calf and sometimes my feet. It almost feels like my veins are bursting. It's not terribly painful, but annoying and worrisome. Anyone else have these symptoms?
