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

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

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. ...Read more

Band of pressure around eyes. Is that just headache or a sign of sinus infection?

Yes Could be either: Because the nasal sinuses surround the boney orbit that form the eye "socket" a sinus infection can cause tremendous pressure that may manifest this way. Other eye conditions such as glaucoma may also present initially as a band of pressure around the eyes or above the eye brow.

Recently have developed a pretty severe eye twitch. This is always accompanied by a debilitating headache. Could be seizure? History of pos epilepsy.

Recently have developed a pretty severe eye twitch. This is always accompanied by a debilitating headache. Could be seizure? History of pos epilepsy.

I'm not sure if you: mean you have a "possible" history of seizure or a "positive" (confirmed) history of seizure. That may change the interpretation of your symptoms. On the face of it, however, this sounds more like a migraine headache with "aura." However, any recent onset of severe headache should be checked out by a doctor. I wish you the best.

Have a closer look at the MRI report and talk to your doctor about the details of the implications. ...Read more
