Numbness: I'm sorry that you are having all of these symptoms. You obviously have been to see someone in order to get a CT scan. Do you have a headache as well. You have some sensitivity to sound, we can't see the rest of your symptoms. If you haven't yet you need to see a neurologist, you probably need an MRI and an MRA or angiogram. You need someone to guide the ship of diagnosis to find out! ...Read more
?nerve compression: Clearly, your description suggests for whatever reason, compression of greater occipital nerve. Could be due to cervical arthritis, posture, and even an early sign of neuropathy.

Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain. ...Read more

Likely not serious: Most causes of head numbness, as contrasted to facial numbness, are benign.

Other common causes are vascular headaches (typically migraine). Facial numbness can be a symptom of actual or impending stroke. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just recently this morning got up and feel numbness on top left side of my head, and has not gone away. I've been taking verapamil since 2004. Thanks?
Probably benign: Most likely your left occipital nerve to the back of your head isn't working well, usually temporary, verapamil, occasionally used for migraine or migraine variant, has nothing to do with your symptoms. If you have a history of neck problems, occipital neuralgia is frequently associated. If you are having headache, this may still be true but other things would need to be considered also. ...Read more

These are rare but serious diagnoses that often began with numbness if these persist or seem to worsen, see your neurologist. Many a person with these diagnoses have initially been labeled: "crazy". ...Read more
Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS
Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more
