What could cause a quarter sized tingling spot on back of head? Could it be related to the fact that I'm sleep deprived?

Superficial nerve

Asleep
This sounds like merely an irritable,superficial nerve in your scalp and probably is not related to being sleep deprived. If symptoms worsen or headaches develop, have a physician check it.

Hard to say. Could be one main cause or many triggers. Get to a MD/DO first.

pressure buildup in back of head when lying down feels like fluid. ct lp and MRI supposedly clear. Pressure and tingling also there when upright?

Think muscles!!!

You have a muscle issue in the neck and shoulders because they work together. Tightness in these muscles will pinch nerves and trigger all types of odd pain sensations. For chronic pain suffers a Wellness Program of Vitamins and minerals (esp. Magnesium glycinate) sleep hygiene, exercise, self Massage, yoga, heat, Epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. i like Acupuncture!

I have tingling sensation on back of head that lasts 15 seconds for past few days, what could this be?

That could be tough

Back
In that it doesn't sound like a disease process. No headaches? No new scalp products? Hair not pulled too tight? Have u been grinding your teeth at night? If this is your only sx and nothing else occurring it will likely be a transient problem in my opinion. If it worsens, evoles into headaches go in. Sometimes we can just tell whether or not something is disease, not It's exact cause. Gd luc.

Best med(s)/plan for headache:concussion and neck sprain from sports injury? Neuro seen,have tingling back of head,stiff neck,nausea one month later

NSAIDS, ice, heat...

Open-uri20130407-28965-nbfolc
Pain, stiffness, and inflammation can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like Advil or Aleve. Follow directions on label. Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscles. Gentle range of motion and stretching exercises.

Car accident ABI x 2yrs, hit my head on the left, CT-scan obtained unremarkable, memory started to deteriorate, tingling on back of head now, problem?

ABI or TBI

Ct_scan
CT/MRI after the initial head injury (up to 2-3 weeks in some cases) may be normal. In this case brain MRI may be normal, but important for ruling out old bleed/SDH. Functional dynamic brain imaging is available but not readily available or affordable. Neuropsychiatric testing can diagnose, define specific deficits & recommend specific treatment. Improvements is seen in those who are proactive.

Yes

Chest-lung
Anxiety can cause a myriad of symptoms from the headache you describe, to stomach pain, chest pain, flushing, and so on. However, to be sure this is what is occurring you should visit with your Primary Care physician and have an exam to be sure.
