Earlier this week I noticed a numb spot on the top back part of my head. Around a half dollar sized spot is completely numb and most of the area around it has decreased sensitivity. A day after I noticed the numbness I started experiencing pressure/tightness and dizziness to the point that I feel like I will be sick or pass out. These feelings significantly increase when I sit up and focusing on anything while sitting has become almost impossible. I also have been getting headaches that feel like sinus headaches, but I have no other symptoms of sinus problems. I've taken Tylenol sinus and regular Tylenol, but they have not helped. The muscles in my head and face also have been periodically tensing up. If I put any pressure on the numb area on my head, the feelings of dizziness and pressure increase significantly.
about six months ago, I noticed a numb area on my back along my spine. I have also had decreased sensitivity up my back and along my shoulders and neck. I saw three doctors and none were able to explain the numbness in my back. I have been to see two doctors at my college's health center this week about the problems with my head, but they had no answers. I am currently trying to get an appointment with a neurologist. I've been searching the web about head numbness, but I haven't found anything that seems to fit. I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem or has an idea about what could cause these problems.
