I've been having a burning sensation from what feels like the inside of my head. I've also been having tingling sensations that are dull. Thoughts?

BUT it's not possible to diagnose these symptoms without knowing your medical history and without the ability to ask you specific questions and examining you. Please see a Dr. to be sure nothing serious is present, better safe than sorry. ...Read more
