I have no answer but I have had a feeling of fluid under the skin outside of my skull twice in the same place just above my ear from the too of my head. Is this the same but if not what is it. I was under a lot of stress at the time and have had sinusitis for over 20 years and surgery at least 14 years ago for this but never have I felt anything like this.
Hi guys , I've been really busy and not been able to reply for a long time, but I'm back now and ready. So carrying on from my last post , the specialist didn't see me, and the doctors diagnosed it as anxiety so they gave me ten mg of propranolol and citalopram which I'm still taking to this day, but like I said I knew it wasn't anxiety and it isn't! My anxiety doesn't effect me at all in the slightest , no panic attacks, costant fear no nothing. Now since my last post the dripping sensation has long gone, the stiff neck and shoulders are still here if not worse, and whatever is effecting me seems to be progressive, with in the past few months I notice my memory had changed , I started forgetting things , and now my memory is quite bad , I struggle remembering things very often and forget where I have put things or where they are in the first place, I sometimes say words wrong or pronounce them wrong very often which I never used to do, I struggle thinking of things to say and my concentration as well, now a lot of back and limb problems have occurred as well such as extreme tightness in my back , the sensation of cold water being poured down my back usually when I'm walking and there Is nor water this sensation proceeds down the back of my thighs and into my toes, very bad aches and shooting pains which I can sometimes feel in my chest, also my legs go very numb and title right up to knees from the foot as well often, I have weakness and shooting pain in my arms, almost all the time in my right arm, I get very confused at sudden moments and go dizzy, and I've noticed since this whole thing started from my first post onwards my neck has been stiff and when I rotate it in a circular motion and then stop and look straight forward the room will tip up to one side and it feels as I'm getting pulled in one direction which I've had whilst walking on occasion, I still have a little bit of numbness that flares up on the right side of my head, i struggle to walk sometimes as i feel weak and fear i could fall or trip which i have done for example alot of the times it feels asif i have to drag my legs and they also hurt and ache when i walk up a small set of stairs now Panderla mentioned cervical spondylosis which could be it but I've had a X-ray done on my neck early in February and all came back normal , I've had Multiple blood tests done including a full blood check and all came back normal , I've had two cat scans of my head which came back normal , I did have a lumbar puncture but I refused to proceed with just before they started as the anaesthesia really made me feel off, which I regret think ill have another one done , I've had multiple heart tracing because I get out of breath easily and two X-rays of my chest which came back clear, now I am seeing a rheumatologist for my back in October , but I'm starting to think this could be something such as Ms with the memory and balance problems or some sort of bacterial infection on the spine I'm not sure at the moment but I've come to the point where I am gonna explode with no answers so I'm gonna try and find out for certain what it is in the next coming weeks, sorry for the late reply yet again, but like I said I'll be checking daily and nightly to respond , thank you for your replays previously. Kurtis.
I have MS and have these issues
You must've heard this before: Its hard to diagnose anything online. But am mentioning it again anyway because my reply has nothing to do with medical science.
All the same, I notice medical science is having a hard time diagnosing your problem. And if I have the correct pulse on your issue, I can assure you that no medicine, no CAT scans or MRIs, will never be able to resolve your issue.
This is because, if i'm correct, you don't have a problem. Western Civilization has reached a place where anything out of the ordinary is feared & looked upon as a disease.
If i'm correct, the dripping moves across your head/ down your spine pretty much the same way a bubble moves inside a lava lamp? If you will kindly notice, the biggest problem about your issue is your own fear of it. Look closely and you will find that if you obsess over your condition, the aches and the anxiety increase. Try ignoring it & you will see that the sensations subside. The lesser importance you give it, the more you will be able to bring this wonderful experience under you control.
I say wonderful, because (if my diagnosis is correct), you have begun an internal journey that will alter your entire existence.
I apologise for the dramatics. I am not a saint, so i'm not exactly sure how to break it to you that 'the holy spirit has decended upon you'.
Notice. In every religion, saints are depicted with a cool halo around their head. Religious traditions & beliefs vary greatly across geographical boundaries but some things remain constant. Like saints and godmen oozing a cool light from their head.
Christians call this process 'being born again'. This is because you have reached the next phase in your evolutionary cycle. And you will find that a lot of the symptoms you experience are shared by pregnant women. Dizziness, euphoria, depression, mood swings, inexplicable sensations, tingling bursts of electricity running down the length of your spine and limbs.
In Hinduism, the supreme god 'shiva' is shown with a constant fountain of water emanating from the top of his head. But in Hinduism, the holy spirit ascends upto the head, instead of making a decent as in Christianity.
Ascends, decends.. doesnt make a difference when u are experiencing what you are experiencing, is it not? If you google the word 'Kundalini', you may find an answer to what you are looking for. And if it sounds familiar to you, I request you to stop running to doctors & taking unnecessary drugs. They most definately will NOT help you, but they might make your situation worse.
I'm not asking you to ignore medical attention. I have great respect for it. But if the doctors are repeatedly telling you that there is nothing wrong, then do yourself a favour & listen to them. Respected Panderla Anitha asked you to try some relaxation techniques & meditation. This is probably the best thing you could do since you now need lots of rest. I cannot stress enough that you need lots of rest and nap time.
Please note, I'm not suggesting you are 'saved' or 'liberated', etc. Just saying that you will now simply begin to become aware of certain processes in your body that aren't known to western medicine yet. If you try to explain these processes to your doctor, he may most probably refer you to a psychiatrist.
Understand: What you are dealing with is an intelligent force. The fact that you feel you are being pulled in a certain direction is just the beginning. You wont be able to prove its existence to anyone. But you would do well to observe it and respect it.
Try not to read too much into the spirituality/ religious part. No need to read them holy books. They wont help you because they are designed to take a human being upto the point you have now reached. After this, you will find your own way.
Live your life to the fullest. If am correct, the last thing you should be worrying about is your body. It is being looked after. Take care of your mind & be good.
I'm just wondering if these symptoms could be associated with TMJ. Stress caused by worrying about it could even cause sufferers to clench or grind their teeth, exacerbate the problem.
Hello and hope you are doing well.
The symptoms mentioned could be caused by cervical spondylosis. Some metabolic disorders like diabetes mellitus and thyroid disorders are known to simulate these symptoms. Blood tests and x rays help to rule out these conditions. You seem to be very anxious and in pain, take OTC pain medications like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen. Try applying local analgesic creams. Place ice over the painful area every 1-2hrs for pain relief. Practice relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
My name is Fredrick and I'm 25. I have the exact sensations and feel the same dripping that you are describing. It is truly scary. I feel it starting in the back of my head down to the back of my neck then fall down to my throat and back and at times down to my chest. It happens suddenly without a warning or reason that I could think of. I have been seen by 8 Doctors, had 4 MRI's, 3 CAT scan, 3 X Rays of my sinuses, brain, neck, chest. And no one has been able to give me a diagnosis. It's December now and I am feeling it as I am typing now. There is minimal pain associated with this ghostly dripping sensation but it is there.I thought I was crazy but reading your post has reassured me that there is something wrong and I am not going to give up until I get some answers. It is a real condition that needs to be fixed. Thank you for sharing about your pain and stay positive. It is hard to do I know but we will find an answer.
