I’ve had a few episodes lately of a peculiar sensation in my head. I’m afraid I really don’t know how to explain it properly, but I’ll do the best I can.
Basically, it starts with a tingling feeling in the back of my head. It feels like shock waves are spreading through my brain, emanating from the back, causing intense dizziness. I feel faint, and my head droops, as if I’ve lost the ability to keep myself upright. I feel very groggy, and can’t quite think straight for a few moments after the dizziness passes. And then it all passes and I feel completely fine, in the space of about ten seconds.
It’s happened four times. I was not tired when it happened, and had only been awake for a few hours. Each time I was sitting – once while I was watching TV, once while I was using the computer, once while I was eating dinner, and once while I was on the toilet.
