Electrical Pulses

I am on Lexapro and have been for a while and I started with symptoms of TIAs where, as an Admin Asst, I was having difficulty putting words together and typing.  I had a strain up my neck with a headache and was hospitalized, had a CAT scan, MRI, lots of blood work, tests, etc. and everything came out okay.  Not long after the strain in my neck became these electrical pulses in my head with this pressure and a constant annoying headache.  Not a migraine of the type that makes you ill and you can't look at light, but one that is just always there that you eventually get used to because you have no choice.  In the middle of all this I had a 6/8-week case of Vertigo that came out of nowhere.  They put me on Prednisone that did seem to help but I'd like to know why it happened and what's going on in my head.  This constant buzzing and electricity that now runs down my back and arms at times is making me crazy.  I was finally able to see a Neurologist and just had a Cervical Spine MRI but couldn't get a follow-up appt. until the middle of November.  My head is spinning, I have to go to work like this because I am not independently wealthy, have no family around to help out so I'm driving and don't know if I really should be.  This scares the crap out of me and really would like some answers!  I continue to take the antidepressants because I certainly have mental health issues and see a therapist.  I'm stay on top of things with my doctors and have asked if my meds could be causing this.  They assure me they are not. I had thought it might even be the Topamax I take and the Neurologist increased the dosage when I saw her.  I certainly hope this MRI has some answers for me! I feel like I'm a walking electrical transformer most days.  This never goes away!
