tingling in head
My husband is 47 years old healthy but more than a few times he said he has been getting numbness and tingling in his head, like when your foot falls asleep. What can this be??

Hi there. Tingling and numbness in head could be because of herpes zoster, post herpetic neuralgia, lyme disease, trigeminal neuralgia, systemic diseases like multiple sclerosis, epilepsy or immune disorders like guillian syndrome, anxiety and panic attack, syphilitic myelopathy, stroke and transitional ischemic attacks. Metabolic disorders like hypo hyper calcemia, hypo or hyper calcemia, magnesium, B1,B6, B12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, migraine and connective tissue disorders, fibromyalgia etc.
Consult a neurologist at the earliest, who would examine you and do certain investigations like blood tests, electromyogram, nerve conduction studies etc. treatment is of the cause, analgesics, anti depressants might be required. Take care.
