Citalopram :: Pain / Numbness /tingling At Back Of My Head

Jan 20, 2015

So I've decided to bite the bullet and move up to 20 mg after being on 10mg for 4 months.

The side effects aren't as bad there manageable which is a plus.

I do have pain/numbness/tingling in the back right hand side of my head (I think it's where the mind is located) I was wondering if this will go away as it's driving me crazy day in day out .

Stress / Anxiety :: Numbness/Tingling In Vein In My Head

I have always had pretty bad anxiety. Recently, I had an episode of Atrial Fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat) which I think was primarily due to my anxiety.

Anyways, since then (about 4 weeks ago), I have had severe health anxiety, and starting about a week ago, I've had this feeling of impending doom, like I'm about to have a stroke or a heart attack or something.

What happened about a week ago was, ever since my ER visit for my AFib episode, I've been obsessively checking my pulse in the vein on the right side of my head. About a week ago, I started feeling numb/tingling exactly along the length of that vein. While I am assuming it is just due to irritation from me constantly touching it, I would like some reassurance. It has been causing me major anxiety to a point where it's almost disabling.

Back Issues :: Numbness - Still Feel Pressure /pain / Temperature

For about a week or so I've been having some slight numbness. It started as tingling in my lower face, but now much of my body has a slight numbness to it. It's not complete numbness, as I can still feel pressure/pain/temperature, but it seems to be getting worse. I've had a small amount of back pain recently as well, but no real injuries/trauma that I can remember. Can a simply back issue be causing this diffuse numbness? Is there any chance this is all permanent? Or could a chiropractor/PT set things straight?

Multiple Sclerosis :: Stiffness And Pain In Neck / Back Of My Head

Just joined and recently diagnosed with RRMS.

I am going out of my mind with worry over some unpleasant symptoms I have been having the last six days.

It started with stiffness in the right side of my neck and at the back of my head, similar to a tension headache but more severe. I have intermittent pain in my right ear, occasional muffled hearing, my neck feels sore to touch, especially at the gland. When I lie down or lean forward/bend over, I have a whooshing sensation in my ears like I can hear the blood pumping.

I have felt dizzy and unsteady at times with waves of nausea.

As I have had no follow up since being diagnosed by the Consultant and have not had an appointment to see an MS nurse yet, I consulted some online MS sites to try and make sense of the symptoms. I thought I may have a muscle spasm and mentioned it to my GP when I saw her on Friday. I was 'told off' for Googling symptoms and told to "stop trying to hang everything on MS".

She ruled out an ear infection or virus and said it was more muscular, however, poo-poo'd a spasm and said it was more likely it was muscular tension following the diagnosis, worrying and getting myself worked up.

It is a different pain to the tension I am used to and tension has never caused me to feel off balance and nauseous. I was given a five day course of diazepam to relax the muscles, however, have only taken one at bedtime on 3 occasions as I need to be able to drive and function at work. They haven't helped particularly.

I was given a 5 day course of Methylprednisolone, 500 mg by the consultant, for neuropathic pain, I finished these last weekend (26th June). A friend who has RRMS suggested it could be side effects of the steroids as her neck and face always swell after she has taken a course and she feels unwell for weeks afterwards.

I am finding it really difficult to function, I just want to lie down all the time and can't get anything done. It's causing me massive anxiety not knowing what is causing this.

Back And Neck :: Severe Migraines Due To Pain Is The Base Of My Head?

I've been having a hard time with neck pain, I'm guessing in my C1-C2 region. I say this because I can literally hear my vertebrates grinding together followed by a sharp pain that runs all the way to my temple and the top of my head, which in turn is causing severe migraines and fatigue. It's gotten to the point where I'll be lucky if one migraine only lasts 3 days. After it goes away, it returns 3-4 days later. It's gotten extremely worse over the past month. I've tried a few physical therapy exercises the relieve the tension but I've found little to no relief. I'm baffled because I'm only 23. Being this young shouldn't suggest long term damage, but the pain tells me otherwise. Any advice or information on some form of release would be more appreciated than anything.

Lupus :: Numbness And Tingling In Extremities?

I wonder if anyone else has had numbness and tingling in extremities? My GP had thought that the issues in my right hand were due to carpal tunnel and related to my swollen elbows. I had thought the numb toes on my right foot I had in winter was due to raynauds. But it's summer now, my elbows are much better, but I'm waking every night from numbness and tingling in left and right hands and right toes and heel.

I don't see this listed as a side effect of plaquenil or as a symptom of lupus. It's not a huge deal, but does result in less sleep. Does anyone else have this or know the cause?

Multiple Sclerosis :: Numbness & Tingling In Right Ear

I am forty five years old and was given a confirmed diagnosis of RRMS in 2009. Since my dx I have been on one DMD, Rebif. I was on it for a year and had to stop due to the side effects. Right now I am med free except for vitamin D supplements. For the past 3 months I have had numbness and intermittent tingling in my right ear canal. I feel numb above my ear (mastoid bone) as well as behind ear. The numbness does not go away however I do experience tingling intermittently. I also have reduced sensation on the right side of my forehead and head. My ear feels full and the sensations I feel are strange. I notice it more at night.

My primary doctor and my MS specialist are not aware of my latest symptoms because I have had sensory issues for years and I am assuming this is all MS related. I am wondering if anyone else here has had similar symptoms. I have no pain just the numbness and tingling.

I will be seeing my specialist sometime in the New Year to review my MRI of brain and C spine. It was ordered almost a year ago (routine) MS doc just wants to see the disease process as he wants me on another DMD. I just had the MRI a week before Christmas.

Having MS is difficult because whenever I have health symptoms I automatically think it is MS related and so I just leave it alone and don't go to the doctor. I am worried that perhaps I could be hindering my health by assuming everything is MS related. Anyways, thanks for reading this I have been lurking for some time and today I decided to post.

Neurology :: Tingling And Numbness In My Face?

I'm a 41 yr old who has been suffering with tingling and numbness in my face, hands and feet and my tongue deviates slightly to the right. I have also had periods of dizziness. I have been hospitalized twice in the last month. Every test has come back negative... One neurologist suggested I could be having Tia while another said its not. I have a strong feeling that my menstrual cycle may play a part in this. I was looking at post from 2011 and their were other women who have similar symptoms!
