Has anyone had numbness in the back of head?
Its really odd, I havent knocked my head but it feels numb to touch it comes and goes.
Two years ago I had a one off symtom of this and didnt pay attention to it but this time the sensation felt tingly.
I have umbness in arm, leg, stomache but never the back of head.
Having a new symtom is worring maybe its not related?
I have had numb patches on head as well as my back. These lasted many months and finally resolved. My guess is mine were a paresthesia. These numb patches also itched but no amount of scratching would relief the itching sensation.
I also have numb patches that were of shorter duration on my arms and legs, etc.
I don't think you need to worry but I would write in down on your timeline of symptoms.
Along with the numbness in my head I have also had shooting pains in the back to top of my head along with pains that just stayed constant.
At the time those pains began I was seeing a pain specialist as well he had ordered that I have additional MRI's for them since I was new to head pain at the time but unfortunately I had too much pain to make it through all the MRI's ordered.
But, for me, despite the MRI's never being completed these pains did go away in time. Every now and then they come back again.
I thought I would share. Good luck with your appointment I will be curious to hear what your doctor has to say about it.
SORRY YOU HAVE NEW STUFF GOING ON. I HAVE HEAD NUMBNESS TO THAT COMES AND GOES FOR WEEKS AT A TIME. MINES WEIRD & FEELS LIKE IM WEARING A FULL HEADBAND OR SOMETHING (HAVENT WORE 1 SINCE I WAS PROBLY 8 THOUGH LOL). SEEMS LIKE ITS ALL WEIRD THOUGH... GOOD LUCK & HOPE THE NUMB FEELING GOES AWAY
