Hi. I also am new to this, and found this forum whilst googling pins & needles or tingling in the head.
I have been getting for the past 3 weeks, pains in the head, not headaches as such, but like a pressure pains, in various parts of my head. These have been happening every day, so Yesterday
i visited my GP. She put it down to muscle spasms or tension. She asked me if there were any other symptoms, which there hadn't been. However, last night I woke up with what I can only describe as a numbness or tingling in my right hand side of my head and face, and my nose felt like it does when you have visited the dentist and had an injection to numb the gum.My whole right hand side of my head and face was tingling and numb.Also down my arm and into my fingers. I was really scared, and coudn't sleep again then for the rest of the night. I have had it still today, but is now not as bad as it was last night.
Does this sound like Anxiety? I didn't realise I was tense or anxious, I am however having a bad time in work at the moment, due to a heavy workload, so maybe this is the cause.
This seems like a great site by the way, So glad I have found it.
