Hot is cold cold is hot pain all over focusing at the cerebral cortex could this be a sign I had a stroke? if no what else can cause this

Answered by:

Not Clear


It seems that you are saying that you have abnormal/unexpected sensations over a part of your head or scalp. The actual cerebral cortex can't been seen(except at surgery) and doesn't have sensation. What you seem to be describing on the scalp sounds like a local peripheral neuropathy. This means there may be some nerves in the scalp that are transmitting abnormal sensations.

Alter coordination


Alcohol can cause a decrease in coordination in anyone who drinks. If you already have a compromised motor coordination, drinking alcohol can make it worse. Be careful how much you drink and understand the point when you feel more compromised.

Alcohol effects


I agree with my colleague Dr. Ali about possible alcohol intolerance. In addition, alcohol is a very dis-inhibiting drug. For some, the first drinks may reduce social anxiety -- allowing easier, and more fun interactions. With more and more drinks, the response can change to irritability because of poor frustration tolerance -- and our usual social decorum (run by our brain cortex) is asleep.
