For about a year and a half now i have been experiencing a tingling feeling throughout my whole head... Its very nerve racking and makes me feel like something is wrong its pretty much 24/7 When it first started it use to make me very out of it n sometimes i would be about to socialize or think straight but now ive just kind of learned to deal with it.. I saw faces in my sleep about a year about n had n extremely scary panic attack after that I was put on abilify n lexapro and the tingling went away a little bit but now its back full force Im still on lexapro but not abilify. I am always very stressed and have extreme anxiety everyday over the littlest things.. About a year ago i got an MRI of my head and everything came back perfect.. I just wanna know whats wrong with me
Thank you for your question. Usually tingling symptoms occur due to nerve related disorders, although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern.
If your all investigation reports came back normal then most likely possibility in your case could be a panic or anxiety disorder that you have faced during last event and currently experiencing. Cause of such panic disorder mostly remain unknown but in this disorder you may feel symptoms like tingling, shortness of breath, feeling of choking, pain in the chest, nausea, stomach ache, feeling dizzy, tingling or numbness, chills or hot flashes, bounding heartbeat or fast heart rate, sweating, shaking etc. even without any underlying disorder. This disorder needs to be thoroughly assessed by a psychiatrist first since this can occur repeatedly and without warning. Treatments may include psychological and drug treatments, and depend upon extent of severity of symptoms. Most commonly psychological treatment tried is counseling, relaxation techniques and sometimes cognitive behavior therapy. ************** depends upon treating the underlying depressive illness through anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medicines. In addition, try to rest in a dark & quiet room, meditate, have a balanced diet, regularly exercise and avoid taking unnecessary non prescription drugs to avoid recurrence of symptoms. Hope this helps!!
