What is the cause of feels like burning sensations or hot at the top of your head im getting anxious about it?

Are you under a lot of stress? Please do not get the wrong idea. I am not suggesting anything. For the most part, it is probably nothing serious as I do not know of any significantly bad condition with this complaint. ...Read more

Need an examination: A symptom of "burning sensations inside my head " and tingling sensations is less likely to be due to a serious disease and more likely due to stress or anxiety. BUT it's not possible to diagnose these symptoms without knowing your medical history and without the ability to ask you specific questions and examining you. Please see a Dr. To be sure nothing serious is present, better safe than sorry. ...Read more
