I have been having an odd feeling in my head. It started a year ago but stoped until a few days ago. It feels like there is a surge in my head, like electricity. If I'm mid-sentance and I feel it it's enough to make me stop talking. It doesn't hurt it just is annoying and I am wondering what it could be and if it could be something wrong.

Hello and welcome to eHealth Forum!

The surge you feel in head, like electricity that comes even if you are mid-sentence and is enough to make you stop talking could be the side effect of the depression medicines you are taking (Lexepro, Xanex). It could also be the side effect of Seasonique.

Ask you doctor for a change in the prescription of the depression medicines and see if it helps. Otherwise you may have to change your birth control pills.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your doctor once. Hope this helps. Take care!
