No, a CT cannot: CAUSE these symptoms. In fact, a CT may HELP DIAGNOSE reasons for dizziness and headache, such as sinusitis. Your doctor is correct that anxiety can cause dizziness and tingling, even without "panic attacks". If you have your CT on a disc, I can explain it to you on HealthTap Concierge healthtap.

Other reason: High cervical disc displacements, such as c34, can give headaches that radiate from back of neck over the top of head. Mri of the cervical spine will answer this question.

I have a tingling, almost feels like water running from the top of my head to my to my forehead. Sometimes I get headaches like that of a hangover?

The symptoms could be transient but if prolonged, a series of nerve blocks should be helpful. Try to remember if you had any injury just above the eye. Less likely are symptoms from one of the branches of the trigeminal nerve and may lead to trigeminal neuralgia. That may require meds. Read more
