Hi i have been getting a burning sensation in back of my head(brain) i also feel really run down and getting pins and needles in my arms and legs alot?

Impossible: You cannot get a burning sensation in your brain. Your brain is insensitive to all pain and other sensations. It senses sensations only in OTHER parts of the body. When you feel those sensations, you feel them in those other parts of the body, not the brain. Have you considered seeing a doctor about this? You folks have got National Health over there, right? Wish we had something like that here. ...Read more

Hi I have a cold feeling sensation in my right leg n foot and feel dizzy at times.what causes this?

Related or?: Symptoms in one leg may be related to the blood flow of the nerves. It is fairly easy to evaluate these on physical exam- check the color, the pulses, the movement, and sensation to temperature, pin prick and light touch. It's not clear how this would be related to dizziness. Either that is something else or there is missing data. ...Read more

My upper back for the last year or so constantly goes numb. I also get a burning tingling pain sensation. If I move suddenly I get a sharp pain there?

Get more detail: Unusual at your age. Constantly "goes" numb (meaning recurrent) or constantly "is" numb (does not resolve)? Big difference. Have someone help you to test where you are numb and then try to draw a circle around the numb area. Repeat over a few days to see if the area is constant or changes. Do same for tingling. Try to be precise about where the pain is. Then take information to your doctor. ...Read more
