I frequently get a vibrating sensation in my head along with difficulty concentrating and a feeling of disorientation. What can this be?

Many possibilities: You need to make a list of when and how often this occurs, along with any other associated symptoms such as headache, the specific things you are disoriented about, whether you are having difficulty with cranial nerve functions such as vision, smell, hearing, taste, etc. Take this with you and go and see a neurologist. Do this fairly soon, but not an emergency. ...Read more

The back of my head keeps going numb and tingly almost feels cold. I keep getting very dizzy and disorientated then feel ok again no meds not stressed?

Disorientation: The numbness and tingling are not as significant as the dizziness and disorientation. This may be neurologic such as migraine or migraine equivalent, vascular with positional compression of cervical vessels, vestibular such as BPPV or hydrops or psychiatric such as a subclinical general anxiety disorder. You may need to see a few different specialists to determine the cause, keep a diary of events ...Read more

When I tilt my head back the 2 arteriesin the back of my head get compressed making me fell disorientated and sick. Can anything be done about this?

Are you sure?: What 2 arteries in the back of your head? Are you sure about this? Have you had arteriographic studies that document this? Where the radiologist did an injection in neutral position & then with your head back? Was the occlusion total or partial? If that's true, someone could kill you just by holding your head tilted back. Those arteries are vital for life. Please repost with more details. ...Read more

Pains in back and top of head distorted vision and disorientation with some hearing and cognitive issues but no headaches blood test and head MRI fine?

Pains in back and top of head distorted vision and disorientation with some hearing and cognitive issues but no headaches blood test and head MRI fine?

Why beta blocker?: Beta blocker itself very unlikely to cause this. Why did you take it (that is the underlying illness)? You may be having more symptoms from your underlying illness. If all tests negative then consider stress, but only after tests done. Classify "distorted" vision better. If solid evidence of structural illness then consider spinal tap - but only if you sure it isn't stress (may hate test). ...Read more

Severe pain in head for over a year, muscle weakness, sensitivity to light, nausea, disorientation, decline of eyesight. Any advice please?

Looks like you need: An evaluation by a medical doctor and likely some diagnostic testing. Unsure of what diagnosis the symptoms are suggesting, possibly MS or possibly narrow angle gaucoma, but sounds like you may need to see an neurologist and eye care provider. I would move quickly to be evaluated because sometimes the longer one waits, the changes may not be reversible. ...Read more

I have facial discomfort that switches sides at times. I also feel pinches around my eyes and forehead and there is eye disorientation. I have sinus and tmj. Any connection?

Maybe: All these symptoms are consistent with with sinus, allergy and tmj. I would try an otc decongestant and see if that helps; if it does not please see your ENT for a better solution and resolution of the problem. For the TMJ use your night guard and if you do not have one see your dentist to have one made. Let us know how it turns out. ...Read more

I used the Neilmed rince and my ear is hurting so bad now, along with disorientation when sitting up. I felt like water went in my ears when I rinced.

Congestion: Nailed sinus rinse is an excellent way to relive congestion and clean sinuses. But make sure you do it right. DO NOT try to sniff it in - let the gravity do its job. If you very congested it is common to have eustachian tube shut and pressure builds up in ears and can cause dizziness and pain. You may try add on Antihistamine as Zyrtec, Allegera... and /or nasal spray as Fluticasone daily. ...Read more
