With high BP or tension, the back left spot of my head feels like spasms, no numbness no pain or dizzyness or other symptom only stress and high BP
High bp: High blood pressure can be controlled by life style changes and appropriate medication. Chronic stress and anxiety can be helped greatly by stress management therapy. If significant headaches in that region of your head continue, checking for an aneurysm or brain growths is advisable, but I feel your symptoms are more likely due to stress and tension and not due to intracranial pathology. ...Read more

Shingles possible: Red marks that are bumpy or blistery and associated with pain are often shingles. If there is a rash or bumpy skin, most likely. Antivirals work best early in onset of the symptoms. If you have not had, I would suggest the shingles vaccine. If otherwise doesn't radiate, and not shingles, could be disc herniation low thoracic region. Try nsaid's, rest, ice/heat, and seek doc if not getting better. ...Read more

Is parasethetica meralgia treatable? Have a numb spot just above my rt knee on rt side. About 3x2
Not sure about this: Meralgia paresthetica is by definition painful. That's what "-algia" means. The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can be injured by trauma or it can be compressed in the groin by obesity. You can treat the pain, if any, like other neuralgias. If the nerve is compressed by a chronic condition like obesity, only "treatment" is to take the weight off the nerve by taking the weight off. :-). ...Read more
