Hemifacial spasm: You are suffering from a condition known as hemifacial spasm. This is not at all a rare condition, it is a lot more common and people think. It is treatable with botox. It is not a dangerous condition, and never do to anything as potentially dangerous or debilitating. It was more of a cosmetic issue than anything else. Sometimes, they could follow a viral infection of the trigeminal nerve. ...Read more

When someone has a headache and it feels like your head is pounding, what's happening to the brain? Is it actually twitching inside the skull?

When someone has a headache and it feels like your head is pounding, what's happening to the brain? Is it actually twitching inside the skull?

Hello From Ventura!: That's quite an image...but no, it's not the brain moving around--it's the inflamed blood vessels pounding away--but not by much. It only takes the normal expansion of an inflamed vessel (or area right next to it) to give you entrance to the House of Pain. Lying down, bending over or coughing might make it worse. If you have a high fever or neck pain or nausea/vomiting, go see a doctor... ...Read more

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head also. Eye is dry also.

No simple answer: The most common cause of achy pain around the eye that I see, comes from irritation of some nerves in the upper neck near the base of the skull. When they are irritated, there may be a tender spot to pressure over them in the neck but the body may be most aware of the pain felt around and behind the eye - called referred pain. For this particular cause, tratment must be delivered to the neck. ...Read more

Headache, drowsiness, pressure behind right eye, uncontrollable shaking in head/neck, uncontrollable twitching with eyes, body muscles contract?

See your doctor now: All of these symptoms are not normal. Not sure if your eye muscle twitching contracting is in unison with your body or not? Independently, twitching of the eyes can be benign if it's myokymia and caused by tiredness or exertion. However, it seems you need a physical exam in which your doctor can assess your eyes too, and give you a medical plan to follow. S/he may need to order labs too. ...Read more

See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md. See an md, because some seizure disorders are life-threatening if not controlled. A neurologist would be best suited for this. ...Read more

Eye twitching for a week now headache starting had Mri, mra, ct scan on head last year showed nothing nothin suffer headaches a lot but eye twitch bad?

A Twitch in Time: Blepharospasm is the term used for eye-twitching that can be a manifestation of an underlying peripheral nerve condition or central nervous system process. Acute trauma around the eye can also result in delayed spasm during nerve healing. In many cases anxiety can also cause this secondary to both acute and chronic stress. If stable, consider it only a nuisance. If changing seek an exam. ...Read more

17 y/o female: neck pain, headache (constant), head/neck twitch from side to side & up & down. Don't know what caused this but has occurred for 1 week.

Headache & neck pain: This could be caused by an injury to your neck, especially the muscles, or a tension headache. A tension headache affects the back of the head.

I have been having headaches for a couple of months on one side of my head and I seem to have no engery now, I also get twitches. Any ideas what it is?

Neurologist: Recurrent unilateral headaches for two months are of concern and twitches suggest possible brain pathology. This doesn't appear to be migraine, typical tension headache or inflamed artery in the scalp (temporal arteritis). I feel that you should be evaluated by a neurologist and the necessary tests will be ordered. ...Read more

I have had a headache in the lower left back of my head. Its making muscles in my neck tingly and my head twitch. What do I do?

Try this: Take over the counter tylenol, (acetaminophen) apply warm compress.
It's usually from muscle strain.
If the pain originates from the back of your neck and move upwards, it could be from a pinched nerve from arthritis in your neck spine.
Check your blood pressure- should be lower than 130/80.
Any trauma, fever, vomiting?

Is it safe to use Humira (adalimumab) with tingling sensation on top of head? Clear MRI 1yr ago. Other symp:chronic headache on right and occ both side facial twitch

Headache: Before beginning Humira (adalimumab) discuss the side effects and contraindications for use with your prescribing physician. The headache that you describe is consistent with occipital neuralgia. The facial twitching could be caused by a variety of neurological conditions. Ideally, a neurologist should have input into you taking the Humira (adalimumab) as well as treating the headaches and facial twitching. ...Read more

Headaches, front of head, all day. Random tingling in left hand and foot. Single twitches in left shoulder, hand, leg, and foot. What is going on?

Probably ok: Based on your age, there's probably nothing to worry about. However, I would see your doctor and ask to be referred to a neurologist for an exam. He will probably order an MRI of the brain to double check for any problems (if your exam is entirely normal, he may not order any testing, but just monitor your symptoms). ...Read more

Can a head tic were you twitch cause any complications like forgetfulness, bumps on head and occasional headaches and fatigue or is this brain cancer.

No.: Forget cancer, much too rare. Examine possible side effects of any medications you are on--particularly antidepressants and sedating antihistamines. They also may cause fatigue and fuzzy memory. Ask if there is a family history of tics. If you are taking a phenothiazine antihistamine, get off it, as this side effect can become permanent. ...Read more
