What's if mean when my lips are numb n iam light headed n keep going dizzy n head feels right light and chest feels tight and blur vision?

Nerve pain: It is difficult to say without examining but the pain you are describing sounds like nerve pain. Nerves can get pinched at the level of the neck. The chest pain may be due to referred pain from a pinched nerve as well or due to inflammation of cartilage. It can also be something more serious like a brain tumor. You need to get examined by a doctor asap to get the correct diagnosis ...Read more

It feels like my muscles on my head get really tight n I get a numbness also I've had CT scan and all was ok what other possibilities could there be?

Hard to say: Given numbness, it sounds neurological in nature. However, it's hard to be more specific with these symptoms alone and a negative ct scan of the head doesn't exclude very much. My advice would be to continue to follow up with your doctor until you get a diagnosis. If there is trouble getting to the bottom of the issue, see a good neurologist. I hope this helps some. ...Read more
