vibration/electricity sensation in my head

I have had issues with insomnia for yrs. Even as a child, I can remember having trouble falling asleep. About 5 yrs. ago, I started having this feeling of static electricity in my head (especially at night).  I started taking sleeping meds around that time, because I couldn't fall asleep. This has become so chronic over the past couple of yrs. sometimes I'd be awake all night.  Now, this sensation of vibration and static electricity is almost there all the time. Sometimes I feel it around my mouth also,  I cannot ever sleep without sleeping meds, not even for a nap, this sensation is so strong. I've had an MRI recently and a sleep study (which I only slept for about 2 hrs. all night).Nothing conclusive.  I'm scheduled for an eeg in a week.  It feels like an ongoing seizure in my brain. Any ideas?


Thanks so much!

These symptoms that are disturbing your sleep must be addressed by your doctors. Unless they are diagnosed and treated, you may continue to have sleep problems. You should still try cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) since, even if these symptoms continue, CBT can improve your sleep. See my website for more information on CBT.
