I finally feel like I am not losing it. I keep having this feeling like there is a "coldness" at the top of my head, like there is an air vent over me or something. It's only in one spot usually, and it comes and goes really fast, but then once I am aware of it I get dizzy and feel like I am "out of my body" and just get that normal "anxiety attack" feeling. I too was kind of worried that it was something serious. I used to get it all the time about a year ago, but then the feeling went away, and now it is back again for about the last 2 weeks. I don't know what is going on. I don't have insurance so I don't really know how to find out about it...

Yep... funny feeling especially right on the top of the head.  Very specific point.  Someone described it as a 'book on the head'.  Another as a 'brick on the head.'  I can relate.  Sometimes it's a light feeling.  Sometimes it gets more intense... like pressure slowly building... but concentrated right at that point on top.  And on occasions it will actually be painful, as if a spike is being driven into my head... or more like electricity is running through straight from the top.

I had these type of head sensations about two years ago.   Then they dissipated for the most part.  I still get them in a very mild form every once in a while.

I've gotten off all my meds and am in the process of tapering off the klonopin.  I want to see how I feel completely 'clean.'  I'm very curious to know what kind of symptoms I might have in the absence of any artificial stimuli.  I'll keep everyone posted.  So far, I'm feeling pretty good.

my first time on here, I looked in cos I have all these strange head sensations, tingling, prickling, cold sensation, sometimes all over my head, sometimes one side, sometimes just at the  back, its not gone off at all today,I am suffering from stress at the moment so I expect that is the answer, but its very scary, it sometimes affects my face as well, and today my foot.I have irregular heartbeats and that causes me stress so its a vicious circle.I am taking beta blockers for the heartbeats and wondered if they were the cause.
I am glad I came on here cos at least I know there are others with the same thing. good luck everyone.
