I'm new here and found this forum after trying to find out what I have. I will try to explain as best as I can.
A little more then a week ago I was sitting down playing on the computer, listening to music on my ipod with earphones. All of a sudden I felt a rush all over my head. I stopped playing and laid down immediately, it left after a bit not sure how long less then 10 minutes. After that first instants the next day I had the same problem. So for the last week the feeling on my head has changed sometimes it is tingling/numbness (pins and needles), sometimes it is burning sensation and sometimes it feels like pressure mostly on the left back side of my head. I dont have medical but I am seeing a Chiropractor and I have gone to the ER and gotten a CT scan done which was okay. Oh and I've recently just been getting dizzy spells. The pain is 24 hours (except for when I sleep). Tingling and pressure seem to be the most prominent now.

To recap 1 week, tingling/ numbness or burning sensation or pressure 24 hours. I really appreciate your guys help and glad I found this forum.

I suggest seeing a neurologist doctor. Also at your chiropractors, check to see if they have a medical massage. I had tingling and numbness in my arm, after a car accident. The medical massage person found my muscles were very iinflamed, and pressing against the nerves and the nerves were sending those singals to my arm. Keep us posted.

Thanks, I'm gonna try to get some medical in order to see the neurologist ($300 for first visit without insurance). I was thinking about getting a rolfing, which is a deep massage of the muscles but thats not bad i think its $125. What I have been doing for now and its helping is taking 2 doses of ibuprofen (200mg) so 400mg total which the doctor in the er said I should do, and I'm also wearing a skull cap it seems to help make me less aware of the tingling which helps a lot. Thanks again for the advice. Don't hesitate if there's any more ideas!

Just try to review anything that may have changed in your life in the last few weeks or even review your day and try isolating potential stress factors and doing what you can to alleviate them. If you haven't had a regular pattern of sleep, be sure to start working towards one. See if you can find any dietary triggers. Try to see what effect exercise has on your pain. It might aggravate it but it could help a lot. Really de-stress as much as you can, mentally, physically, emotionally, even medically--don't take ibuprofen too many days a week! Use ice packs liberally too.
