Head Tingling, Numbness-vertigo...related??? (Page 3)


June 20th, 2011
hey, I have a quick question and i Might be completely wrong.

First Please ready through this...

I am 18 years old and ive been having similar feelings in my head, Feelings of being 'too inside' my own head ( the only way i can describe it) tingling feelings in the back of my head which sometimes moves around in my head. I get Numbness in random places and its really scary. It never happens when I am with people, Only when im on my own and I have time to think properly about things I wouldn't think about when im with my group of friends for example.
During my years of being 16&17 I took LSD a large number of times, (Proberbly around 30-40 times)
A While ago I had a bad experience with LSD, a quite out of the ordinary experience as I have found no one anywhere online who has experienced the same. About 3-4 hours into my Trip, It was as if all the hallucinations came together as one and I stopped hallucinating, Now you my think this sounds crazy but this is true. This was accompanied by the same fuzzy tingling feeling in the back of my head.
I often get this tingling feeling in the back of my head and a Feeling of being detached from reality almost and I numbness which feels almost like paralysis after I smoke Cannabis and I am on my own, very very rarely when I'm with my friends, which is Weird because its almost as if thoughts in my head trigger it to happen. This numbness will move all over my body, somtimes my face will go numb (like at the dentist) for second of two, or sometimes my Leg or my Arm. Or sometimes ones whole side of my body will feel heavier and weird compared to the other side. And When i Come to think about this numbness it goes away almost immediately.


So back to my question,

have any of you ever experimented with LSD in ur life?

To all out there
I have had a lot of the same issues going on and my doctors keep telling me I
Depressed. I'm getting angry!! I've had tingling, numbness and feeling as if I have something crushing my head, I get sharp pains that last a few seconds in my head but no headaches. Started 2 years ago when I was getting weakness in my legs and arms to feeling weak on the outside but full of energy in the inside. I ended up losing 70 lbs even tho I ate non stop, was sick to my stomach all the time to throwing up whiched caused me severe stomach problems. I'm constantly walking around not knowing where I am and I never know what I'm doing like I'm lost all the time. I feel most at ease when I'm laying down but that's when the numbness and coldness and tingling in my head starts. During the day my eyes hurt and are very heavy as if I haven't slept in days but at night I feel wide awake. Now eating my body keeps telling my I'm hungry even after I eat and have gained 20 lbs in 3 months. The pain and stiffness in my neck is getting worse and I have an awful taste that comes up from my throte. My confusen is getting worse and I even forget the name of my kids and an for getting to turn stoves off. I see spots when looking around, ringing in my ears and when inclose my eyes at night I feel and hear something as electricity shocking in my head. I have learned that Dr's now days don't give a crap and really don't know how to treat a patient. As long as they get their 15 minute pay form me they don't care but I bet they can treat them self right!! If only doctors can feel what I feel when I see them and maybe I can get better treatment and they don't listen to what I'm telling them because it is my body and it's telling me something is WRONG. I wish all of you out there that are having the same problems as me that you find a cure for your illnesseses as I wouldn't want to wish mine on anyone as my fear of life lies with me every day and the scare for my children with out me. Good luck to all.

Hi all! I have only read 3/4 of the posts but it seems there is a lot of commonality in the symptoms. Has anyone been tested for CSF insufficiency or Increased Intracanial Pressure or Benign Intracranial Hypertension, or inflammatory neuritis and Trigeminal Neuralgia? These syndromes can cause all of the symptoms some of you are writing about and more. I have been worked up for so much it is getting silly...I am going to start glowing soon.
All started with GI disturbance...severe stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and inability to eat...lost 60 pounds very quickly. GI doctor dx me with gastroparesis but not sure where it was coming from.
Since then I have had trouble with severe headaches, fluctuation of blood pressure and blood sugars, balance and muscle weakness with decreased reflexes, severe spinal pain radiating out to arms and legs, raynauds', cold intolerance, problems with severe facial pain on one side and same side neuro symptoms including double vision, eye pain, tinnitis, jaw problems, and pain in the roof of my mouth down throat. I also had a most recent bout of vertigo, headache, nausea, vomiting that put me into bed for 6 weeks which resulted in a 3 week hospital stay and physical rehab stay to get me walking again.
I have been to gi, neuro, rheumy, ent, derm, dentist, endodontist, oral surgeon, endocrinologist, and chiropractor (who believes it is a rogue virus or something attacking my nervous system) and noone can figure it out.
I have to keep going though...and so do you. I know you are afraid. I have been through so much and I do worry that I won't be able to do what I need to do for my family, but some days I have to just trust in God and stand in His love, knowing He is in control.
Praying that we all get our diagnosis and treatment soon so we can get well. Best wishes!

I have tingling and numbness in my head, sharp shooting pains that last only a second each, pain in my neck on left side, left side numbness in my arm and leg, terrible vertigo that comes and goes and sore spots on my skull. I have days where I feel very confused and unfocused. Gastrointestinal issues. Stiffness in all joints when I wake up. sometimes my head and left ear feel very full.
I started keeping a journal and am trying to heal myself through prayer. Dr's do not know what it is. I take SAM-E, many whole food supplements. I was a raw vegan and vegetarian at times and now I eat grass fed beef every two weeks and some fish and grass fed whey protien. I jump on my little rebounder (trampoline), use a lot of essentail oils, do the lymph drainage exercises for head, Kundalini yoga and have started to pay attention to my breathing. I realized that I stop breathing frequntly during the day and night and Sometimes when I wake up and take a deep breath I feel a rush going through my body similar to the sensation just before orgasm. all of these things I mentioned work. I am wondering if it is a b-12 deficiency and would be curious to know if anyone was a vegan or vegetarian. I was always very low B when tested during that time and would have to supplement. Have not been tested in a while. I also suffer from anxiety and sometimes feel that my legs are going to give out from under me. Good luck to all of us in finding some answers. In some ways I am a bit relieved to know I am not alone.

Headaches, numbness/tingling, pseudotumor cerebri, neuro, pain
Hi All! I have formally been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri or benign (NOT!) intracranial hypertension after the LP I have been asking for two years was done last week. The opening pressure was high and so the diagnosis was made. I started on Diamoxx and I have noticed a significant difference in that I can actually be upright without having to keep putting my head lower than my heart to make the blood go up there, I am regaining some of the physical strength back in my arms and legs that was being cut off by the pressure in my spinal cord, I have terrible pins and needles but the doctor says that it is the nerves being released from the pressure...now we wait to see if the medication will work or if I will need a retroperitoneal shunt, which I have heard also cause a lot of problems if they get kinked off or clog. Saying a prayer that all of you get some diagnosis and help for your symptoms. I have a long way to go because I still have the rheumatological/autoimmune issues to resolve and get a diagnosis but I feel like this is finally, finally a step forward. Thank God for his kindness and mercy!!! Hugs!

ab12 deficiency would cause your muscles to weaken, especially in the legs. you would have severe pain in your legs, including to touch, and would lose the ability to walk if the deficiency got severe enough...but it would not cause the neurological issues people are saying they are having.

Parasites
My wife has gone through many surgeries, medications, and treatments all kinds of things to finally discover that she has a parasite! She is currently going through treatments to kill it off. She has noticed that her original symptoms are changing and her frontal sinus headaches that she has had 4-5 surgeries for have changed/ moved to different parts of her head. Which to her and the doctor is a good sign. She has felt more energy and is feeling more like her life is coming back. The parasites are very persistent as we believe she has had them for so many years. It will take some time before they are eradicated. Her doctor, who is a Kinesiologist/ Chiropractor, has been studying the process to rid the body of parasites and is going to treat her with a more effective intravenous treatment that will kill them off faster. This should happen in the next couple of weeks.
I mention this because....if you have ever watched the show "Monsters inside me", most of the weird symptoms that these folks have, where they have seen several doctors who give up, do their own research and find a doctor who is interested in finding the problem, end up finding out it's a parasite...treatment happens and they are cured.

Headaches, Parasites, Neuropathy
Would you plese tell us what the parasite name is so that I can relay it to my doctors. The pain I have in my head is mostly in the right sinus and posterior throat area, with my GI tract and blood vessels being inflamed, causing neuropathy like syndromes and severe pain. All of my neuro tests except some reflex tests have repeatedly come back normal but I am having balance, muscle weakness, blurry vision, and terrible pins and needles in my extremities without a diagnosis except idopathic neuropathy (which means they have no idea why I have it, go figure..) or they lump it under fibromyalgia which the neuro and chiro say it definitely is not. I have, for years, been telling the docs that there is either a rogue virus or parasite causing some of my symptoms (and chiro agrees but can't prescribe anything except herbal which I am afraid to do with all the meds the regular docs have me on). Your post and help is greatly appreciated!!

hormones/migraines/seizures
Hello, I am a 34yr old woman who has had very similiar symptoms. I will try to keep this as short as i can! My "episodes" started 15yrs ago, shortly after my 1st pregnancy. They started as 1)blinding auras and pressure/pain behind my eyes, which led to 2)"diagnosed" migraines, then 3)incapacitating vertigo, accompanied with 4)nausea. All of these symptoms remained regularly, without a diagnosis, until my 2nd pregnancy(2001), when they all disappeared. When they returned, it was with random 5)numbness and 6)tingling. No test was able to find an explanation for all of my symptoms, so i was treated for migraines and vertigo and told it was stress/anxiety related. Around 2004, symptoms progressed into 7)TC(tonic clonic) seizure activity and a pattern was noticed! Symptoms started after pregnancy,went away during,and corresponded with menstruation & ovulation:all times of varying hormonal flux! My neurologist drew the conclusion that i was originally misdiagnosed with migraines. I had been having some form of focal seizure,induced by hormone levels, that matured into generalized seizure activity. I currently take an AED that controls any major seizure. During a heavy period, i sometimes will have my old symptoms, but rarely. For the most part I am all better. Maybe some of you should look into this? I am told that people with epilepsy often have migraines and associated symptoms, but people with migraines do not have seizures! I find it all to be a bit odd and a little confusing, but maybe this will help point some of you in the right direction!!!!

Vertigo, Diarrhea and Numbness
Wow! This has been fascinating to read! I am a 47yr old woman who had a full abdominal hysterectomy 20mos. ago. I was diagnosed with benign vertigo after the birth of my daughter 17 yrs ago and have had vertigo "seizures" about twice a year since. But what I am currently experiencing is something altogether new!
About a month ago, I noticed I was feeling very nauseous. It would go away on it's own but come back a day or two later. I travel a great deal for a living...literally flying about 150,000 miles per year. Recently, I am experiencing motion sickness on my flights...3 weeks ago, it was so bad, I arrived at my hotel very sick (with pain behind my right eye and twitching) and had to go to my hotel room and vomit. I saw my Dr last Friday, had some blood tests (low Vit D but all else good), he prescribed a motion sickness patch which I think made me feel worse!
It finally seemed to be getting better except I woke up 2 nights around 1:30am w cramps and diarrhea. About 2 hours ago I began to feel the room spin again! I am also feeling a strange numbness at the base of my skull where my spinal chord would meet. This is soooo frustrating! But it is nice to know others are out there too!

head tingly prickly numb/cold...etc etc
Hi

I am Fifty and have some of the same symptoms you have all talked about..but do not have the extreme vertigo (though in the past few months i have had times when I did feel a slight feeling of "off") no do I have the migraines...what i do have, and have had for around six months now is what I call the "head/scalp sensations". it's a tingly, prickly, numb, burning then cold feeling in different areas at different times on my scalp. At times the are that is sore and prickly has a warm feeling when i touch it. Oh and it makes it feel better if I apply pressure to the spot or scratch it. It's so hard to explaine..sometines it feels like someone is pulling my scalp together using tongs...and other times like right now it feels like the same needle the dentis uses to freeze your mouth. The only thing that relieves mine is using an Icepack. It doesn't keep me up at night..and I don't wake up with it. at times it radiates all over the scalp..other times it stays in one spot. I have already gone through menopause...and I have a history of jaw issues. As well about five years ago i had a fall and hit my head, did not pass out and did not have any concussion. Was checked out by the dr. Someone has suggested that with my history of jaw problems it could all be related...or there could be nerve damage?????

I have had a tingling head on the left side and top of head which usually results in the left side of my face, nose going slightly numb. I have had vertigo for about 4 months, my left eye slightly waters at times. It all seemed to start months ago with stiffness at the top back of my neck. I have tried quite a few things and been to several doctors. I finally got a little relief when I went to a chiropractor and he did some upper neck stretches and electrical stimulation on my upper neck. I also started doing one Bufferin tablet at 7am noon and 8PM for three days. Im not sure if it was the Chriopractor or the bufferin that helped, but the tingeling feeling and numbness is gone. My vertigo is still there. Perhaps hypertension was causing the problem and Bufferin thinned the blood. Not sure yet. I hope this helps others.

Acute Labyrinthitis
I have experienced most of the same symptoms described in this thread, and interestingly, often in January (I live in Chicago) and thought I would share that I was recently diagnosed with "acute labyrinthitis" (see Wikipedia). Decongestants help to drain the fluid/mucus in the inner ear and sinuses, along with eye movement and balance exercises, gives me relief from the symptoms.

Same symptoms here, no doctor can help, went to see a naturopath and he thinks it's systemic candidiasis (yeast infection attacking the inside of my body). Treatment is antifungal homeopatic med, probiotics, supplements to strenghten your immune system, very strict diet of no sugar, wheat, dairy, alcochol, caffeine. After 3 weeks I am showing improvement, don't know if it will last. Hope this helps, I know how debilitating it is.

Dizziness, ringing and numbness
I am having the same symptoms too. For the past 4 weeks I have had constant dizziness. It is not too severe and I am able to perform day to day activities fine, for the most part. I am also having constant rining in my left ear and numbness(burning feeling) in my left foot. I have been to my PCP, a neurologist and a ENT and no one seems to know what exactly might be causing it. I had short spells of dizziness in December 2011. Other than my usual activities, I signed up for yoga. Do you think it might have anything to do with my symptoms?

vertigo, ect
It sounds like most of the people on this board who are speaking of vertigo, ear ringing, tingling, visual disturbances ect....are suffering from a condition called silent migraine, or basilar migraine. I have the same symptoms, and lots of them. Some are very strange, and some don't seem to fit at all. Migraine can occur without headache which is why this is such a misdiagnosed condition, or is considered to be due to "anxiety" which I find hilarious because I was never an anxious person until a good year into these symptoms occuring on a daily basis. Medication can control it for most people. My symptoms are chronic and occur daily. Ive been tried on a few meds. Amitriptyline controlled my symptoms enough for a while so I could enjoy life again, but unfortunately it is no longer working as well as it did. I am currently receiving botox shots in the head, neck and shoulders as a treatment. I have only had one round, and the neuro said it may take a few rounds before anything happens, if anything happens. This is a horrible disability that most people do not understand. It can completely affect your functioning and make you feel like you are going to die....not fun! Good luck

hormones
Please all of you ladies (for the men I do not know I am sorry) try to read Dr. John R. Lees work on pre-menopause and menopause. Some of this may very well be related to estrogen-dominance - a condition that is easy to get in this day and age with all the xeno-estrogens in our environment. Dr. Lees books are called "What your doctor may not tell you about menopause" and "what your doctor may not tell you about pre-menopause". You can also look at his website. If you follow this link, you arrive at a test that can tell if your symptoms are related to hormonal issues.
Best of luck,

Cure for this problem
Hi, finally all symptoms gone.

I had all those symptoms. 3 months of hell. Stiff neck, had to keep cracking it to make any difference. Slept ok but on waking up the stiffness, confusion, tingling, vertigo etc., Spent fortune on physio, massages etc., Solution was very simple.

Cause was using chat on my phone, constantly looking down and typing. RSI followed. First, stop chatting on phone/texting, facebooking etc.,

Then get the bottom part of your palm of your hand, just above the wrist, and massage the muscle behind your ear [mine was right hand side] but underneath and behind your ear. You will find instant relief and symptoms disappear within 10 minutes. Massage using firmish pressure in a circular motion. That does the trick!

your headache and neck pain sound like A-typical migraines, or complex migraines. Have you tried Imatrex? My guess is if you have it doesn't help, nor does the neurontin or many of the others used. you could also be having muscle spasms in your neck. my sister had all the same issues including having some herniated discs. botox injections in the back of her head, a chiropractor, and a tens unit and her migraines and neck pain Re down to once a month from 2-3 a week!

numbskull 808, there is a collection og nerves just behind your ear. when you get numbness and weakness of the muscles of your face it is called a Bell's Palsy, and it is because that cluster of nerves is being aggravated...usually by inflammation...usually caused by a virus. a Bell's Palsy has nothing to do with any of the nerves in your neck.

Hi peoples.. Myself and family have been suffering this for 8 years now. we first got sick from mold exposure. dr's have done that many test.. the only one showing anything up was hubby.. iron overload, borderline leukemia, high ige.. (all this is gone now!) my husband and i have alot of the same symptoms apart from a few. my daughter happened to get all symptoms. I have been studying naturopathy for quite a while now. sadly it is histamine intolerance. But the good news is there is plenty to do about it. Fir one i would not recommend medications from the doctor's as many raise histamine. There is a diet called the paleo diet, it is said to be low histamine and a lot of other sufferers are feeling better on it.. it's sad to be the one to tell you that we can not eat what we want any more if we don't want to keep the symptoms. Most of us have a lot of food related allergy's that we don't know about. Supermarket meat is older so it has more histamine, go grass fed meat and try to get it as fresh as possible.
The dizzy's and loss of balance and numbness can be bought on by gluten foods. Pizza will set you off big time, the walls might even start moving for you, lol.. we got to keep humor going guys.. it's the walls and floors moving.. not us.. lol.. hope some get that joke. Anyway check out the diet, do research on histamine intolerance.. ok now for some symptom help.. Vitamin C!!!! i use melrose calcium ascorbate, the calcium pulls the histamine out of the smooth muscles and into the blood the ascorbate cleans it out of the blood.. this helps keep the brain clean and with fibromyaliga pain and sore bones.. i have up to 10 tsp's aday.. depends if i am cheating.. don't have the 10 tsp's together, 1 tsp a hour.. you may get diarrhea. also take a vit b6 at least 1 tab a day with your main meal.. this will help create the dao we need.. i also have 4 tsp's of magnesium citrate a day.. spread out. also i do a magnesium cloride body oil every other day.. we live in a very toxic world we need to help our bodies detox. People will tell you it is candida and they are die off feelings.. i lived believing that lie for 2 years.. also alcohol is a no no... it raises histamine.. if you have breathing, lung and swollen tongue that would be because you are depleting in vitamin c, most asthma people are.. the vitamin c in large doses clears all that up within a week.. not to sure what other info i can give.. oh of you can get some minerals try to keep up your potasium as histamine tends to drop that one alot.. the dr's always ask if we drink.. lol.. alcohol raises histamine and that drops potassium.. funny that.. anyway if i can be of any other help let me know or email me..blessing to you all in recovery!!

Tracy,

You're correct in your explanation here. Histamine intolerance can cause all sorts of unrelated symptoms and was at the cause of many things that were ailing me. I had everything these people here describe and more.

A good place to start is here: http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/85/5/118 5.full
and here: http://www.foodsmatter.com/allergy_intoler ance/histamine/articles/histamine_joneja.h tml

People who are high in histamine are under-methylators and cannot detox themselves properly. There are ways around this, based on your genetics and you can check out Amy Yasko's work for more on that.

I also suggest everyone go check out the blog Roo's Clues as she has a lot of information on histamine, but also on many other things that many of you are dealing with and don't even know it.

Lastly, please look for the causes of things and don't be content to just treat the symptoms. Even chronic, "non-curable" autoimmune diseases can be put into remission or cured if you do the right things for your body. The hard part can be figuring out what that is and you're going to start researching and sel-treating if you want to know. There are very few doctors out there that know anything about this stuff. Most of them are in Europe as they are about 10 years ahead of us over there with research and treatment.

Two days ago, i felt like i thought I was having a heart attack. My 8 year old was home with me. I was sitting on the couch and got a little light headed so i lay down for a second. When I went to pick my head up my heart felt like it was pounding so hard it was sure to burst. I was feeling faint and was trying to get to my son to call his dad. When I reached the bed my heart was still pounding hard and fast and still on the verge of fainting. When I was young I use to faint alot from getting up too quickly. This was different as I couldn't make it stop. I lay in the floor hand in hand with my son. Praying and asking God to please be with me. I would tell my son to call his dad and when he would leave I would try to raise my self up and bam there it was again. So he called 911. It took them a while to get here. 911 told my son they would get here when they got her....he is 8! The fire dept. got here first and checked my blood pressure and it was elevated but not bad. They asked what meds I was on. TO THEIR DISAPPOINTMENT I take methadone and have been on it 3 years. From this point on everyone from them to emt's nurse practitioner, doc etc wrote me off. I think they thought I was o'ding. ANYWAY.....it helps to know Im not alone but stresses me that it may continue and them not know what is wrong. I had a small one this morning and took the antivert they gave me and it helped. I still have the numb hands, hurting neck and swollen sinuses. HELP if you can!
