Hopefully I may get some additional answers in this forum. I posted this originally in another forum. I have been through numerous ER trips (3 CT scans, 1 brain MRI, 1 brain MRA, 1 MRI of C-Spine - All normal). I don't think these things change too much so I was comforted by the results. Unfortunately, I still get tingling in my head - sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right, sometimes on top. Sometimes the tingling will even spread down my arm. A few weeks ago I had a tingling episode where it felt like my face was drooping - even though I know it wasn't. I went to the ER and they found nothing. I have been evaulated by a neurologist and have no signs of ALS or MS or anything neurological in nature. Sometimes I feel like I have a vein swollen in my head or that a blood vessel just burst in there. I was convinced for a while that I was having a stroke but I can't argue with the doctors when there is nothing medically wrong. The best way I can describe what I feel is my head feels like it would after I sneezed - just without the sneezing part. Oh yeah - and sometimes my tongue tingles at the tip - does anyone have that? Please reply as I would like to know the proper course of treatment.

I don't suffer from Migraine so can't personally share my experience but do share a close relative called Cluster headaches, but an enemy I pray you don't have.  At my signiture section there is a sight you can go that talks about them as well as others if you scroll down that might better help you answer some of your questions.  Good luck and feel free to ask away that is what we are here for to help one another out.
