Pressure feeling on just forehead, tingling on scalp, sensitive to light - Dr doesn't know what it is - any ideas? The pressure is pretty constant.

The last patient i had with this symptom ended up having shingles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vertigo (room spinning) and tingling scalp. On Klonopin (clonazepam) .5mg @ 6 hrs 3 x's a day. Didn't eat at all and had very bad vertigo at bedtime. Meds?
