Re: head twinges

Hi Louise,
I have suffered these symptoms for years, sometimes if I move my head (especially when I am led down) I will get this horrible sensation up the back of my head which really makes my jump, it is like a burning feeling but very hard to explain. I do suffer with my neck and I think your problem definitely relates to your neck too. It certainly isn't an anurysm. Please try not to worry it is a very common condition.
Take care.

Re: head twinges

Hi there!
I sympathise with you completely with these head pains and I was so worried that my doc referred me to a neurologist who I saw today. He assured me it is nerves from the neck becoming numb due to bad posture/stress/tense muscles etc. He even pricked my head with a pin to demonstrate this and there was a definite place where I couldnt feel much compared to the rest of my head where it really hurt!!
As for anuerysms, again I understand. My mum had one back in February and it has really freaked me out. Neurologist said he would book me in for an MRI scan if I wanted to try and rule it out so I am debating this at the moment!
Hope all goes well for you. xx

I got those really bad for awhile, another thing that can cause strange feelings in your head is when you get stressed your scalp contracts and gives tingly feelings
In August and everything after, i want somebody else to bleed for me
