A 19-year-old male asked:
What could cause a quarter sized tingling spot on back of head? could it be related to the fact that i'm sleep deprived?

Superficial nerve: This sounds like merely an irritable, superficial nerve in your scalp and probably is not related to being sleep deprived. If symptoms worsen or headaches develop, have a physician check it.
