Dripping wet feeling felt inside head.

Hello,

When I was 15, I was laying on my back playing my gameboy, when suddenly, I felt something like water trickling down the INSIDE of my head. This was NOT something I felt on my scalp, but again INSIDE of my head where someone will feel a headache. Of course, I was all nerves, crying hysterically, asking my sister to call my mom because I thought the worse was about to happen to me. To make a long story short, my mom took me to the emergency room, where the doctors performed a CAT scan on my head. After getting out of the CAT machine, they showed me a picture of my skull revealing that had sinusitis. I asked them what was the wet feeeling I was feeling, and they said it was mucus draining. So they put me on antibiotics for like 30 days or something? And I still continued to feel that wet trickling feeling of water running in the inside of my head. There is no pain associated with it, but utter fear and worry.

As silly as it sounds, I never went back to the doctor because I am already a hypochondriac, and feared the worst as a second opinion. Seven years later at 22, I continue to feel this 'wet trickly feeling' in the inside of my head frequently not lasting many minutes. My temple also twitches, which frightens the hell out of me, as well as twitches felt in other areas of my head. My primary doctor said, if something seriouly was wrong with me, I would have known by now. I am not reassured, and on the verge of going to the doc to see if something wrong. To feel like water is dripping inside the head is abnormal, and never heard of? What could this possibly be?

I was recently diagnosed with CM and have heavy pressure/pulsation in my head (tinnitus and "heartbeat in both ears), my head bobs when I'm trying to sit still, it feels like someone is pulling my hair all of the time, base of my skull burns and my ears drip throughout the day.  I suggested to my Dr. that I thought I might have CSF leak and he treated me like I was crazy.  The leaking has been going on for more than a year.  I also have 2 herniated discs and a syrinx so it didn't seem so far fetched to me.  I can't get anyone to explain the pulsation and give me some kind of resolution.  It's driving me crazy.  I don't sleep enough.  I'm losing vision in my right eys and my body feels like it's trembling/vibrating all of the time.  I had a CINE MRI that showed diminished posterior CSF flow and cerebellar tonsils abut foramen magnum.  I also have what I call "drop attacks" where I fall down without losing consciousness (I feel like I'm in a vortex)--no hydrocephalous. I am becoming physically weaker every day.  Does any of this sound familiar to you?  I'm desperate for answers and trying to plan my next move.  I need to find a Dr. who is well versed in this type of problem.

Thank you San Francisco for your reply! Again this is very reassuring for me. Although I still need another evaluation, it is SO good to know that I am finally hearing comments of people who felt what I felt! I was thinking like oh goodness, I have one of those odd conditions like only one in a million get because everyone would have these surprising reactions when I told them I drip through my head. Thank you so much. I will have to do some "spring" cleaning early-lol-

Dear No Name,

I understand your concern, I had the very same feeling and still do. I saw an ENT and he determined it was Post Nasal Drip.

I know it feels really odd, Now I am not a doctor, but I think that if you had a "spinal fluid leak" from the age of 15-22...well I am pretty sure you would have been dead long ago.

My post nasal drip comes and goes, it depends on many things, seasons of the year, what part of the country I am in, and how dusty my room gets...

lol So clean your room and under your bed, vaccume and dust often, that may help.
