Hard to say: These complaints warrant a full history and exam. Given no history of trauma you could have a chronic headache or something life threatening like meningitis. As it turns out the best approach would be to be examined by your doctor and if unavailable to the emergency room to rule out these life threatening issues. ...Read more

Why do I experience cold wet sensation in back of head and I feel drowsy all day?

Rainy Day Feelin?: The sensation of cold and wetness where really there is none can be produced by a nerve or nerve root which is not functioning properly for some reason. See your doctor or neurologist for an examination to look specifically at either your occipital nerve function or your cervical spinal nerve roots. Drowsy all day may have a metabolic cause.

Unusual symptom...: A pediatrician or family doctor can sit down with the 10 year-old and chat, to find out what is meant by a cold sensation. There aren't any cold items inside the body, unless one is drinking cold milk or eating ice cream. So, the doctor will want to know if the sensation is in the skin, which may mean something is irritating the sensory nerves to that area of the skin. ...Read more

Probably spasm: The biggest part of the side of your head is a large chewing muscle. This muscle, like all muscles, can spasm causing the symptoms you are describing. Gum chewing, teeth clenching, stress etc. Can all aggravate the muscle causing pain. Try a soft diet, antiinflammatory medications and ice to the side if your head. If not a lot better in a few days see an ENT doctor and your dentist. ...Read more

Sometimes feel the left side of my head gets numb, it's strange also feel it gets cold, this sensation lasts for a couple of seconds. I Have migraine?

Not the classic: These aren't the classic symptoms of migraine, but it may be similar in some respects. In any case - see a Dr for an exam and take it step by step. It's not likely to be a simple everyday headache with the numb/cold brief description. You'll possiblye be referred to a neurologist for tests. That's fine - don't be alarmed, but find out what's going on. I'll refer you to Dr Saghafi - a good HT neuro ...Read more

Can nerve damage affect the whole body, I have a weird (tightening sensation) that affects my head, mostly aggravated in cold weather.?

Can nerve damage affect the whole body, I have a weird (tightening sensation) that affects my head, mostly aggravated in cold weather.?

Cold sensitivity: On the first question yes - nerves can effect the whole body, but your descripation does not seem to fill that bill. Tightening around the head with cold weather makes me think of muscle contractions. Try a muscle relaxant per your M.D. See if it clears. I like Fioracet for muscle contraction hadaches. If it doesn't clear see a neurologist? Not enough info here for a more specific diagnosis... ...Read more
