Why do I get weird sensations in my head? Sometimes it feels like I'm falling backwards or I feel pressure spots on my forehead.

Why do I get weird sensations in my head? Sometimes it feels like I'm falling backwards or I feel pressure spots on my forehead.

2 possible answers: These may not be the answers, but they are common causes. The sensation of movement arises from part of the body called the vestibular system. It is located under each ear. Sometimes this is the source of peripheral vertigo. There is also something called a tension headache. It feels like a band or pressure, often in the forehead, on both sides.

I have a weird sensations in my head that occur all over the place I have anxiety but I keep thinking its a brain tumour I'm terrified that it is?

Too rare to worry ab: You need to gather some knowledge which will convince you that you do not have brain tumor. Firstly, brain tumors are so rare that >98% of us will be spared from this monster. Secondly if one develops a brain tumor by unfortunate and bad luck, it will show up soon after the new symptoms begin and the symptoms will keep getting worse quickly so that one can not function normally after 3-6 months.

I get these weird tingly achey heavy sensations in my head what is this?

Anything: Headaches can come from fatigue, sleeping too much or too little, eye strain, sleep apnea, snoring, being dehydrated, having chronic sinusitis or allergies, too much caffeine or over the counter headache medication, high blood pressure or something more serious like a tumor. See your doctor and get checked.

Switched from 1mg xanax to 1mg klonopin abruptly and experiencing internal shakey sensations in my head. Should I be concerned. Happens often.

Switched from 1mg xanax to 1mg klonopin abruptly and experiencing internal shakey sensations in my head. Should I be concerned. Happens often.

Well: Xanax is a powerful but short acting medication. Klonopin is a long acting medication and 1mg may be a higher dose than you tolerate well. I would check with my prescribing doctor straight away.

MRI scan of head: An MRI scan of your head would show any anatomic abnormality such as brain tumors, bleeds, strokes, etc. It's only one part of a full neurological evaluation. Your history, physical exam, and possibly additional diagnostic studies like eeg would be needed as well. Take care.

I got into an accident a few months ago and have strong pulsating sensations in my head ever sense. Could it be vertebral artery compression??? What??

I got into an accident a few months ago and have strong pulsating sensations in my head ever sense. Could it be vertebral artery compression??? What??

To consider..: Do you get dizziness when you rotate your head to one side, or when you look up? Do you ever have sudden difficulty speaking, or blurred vision, or significant weakness of one or more extremity with this kind of motion of the head? These are the typical symptoms associated with vertebral artery syndrome. If you never had imaging after the accident your doc may want to consider some now with symptoms

Lots of stress?: It sounds that might be under some stress and experiencing somatic equivalents from this or anxiety. Somatized, body equivalents or symptoms of this nature are to be considered as part of the picture, but it is also wise to check them out with your doctor to rule out relevant medical issues. Your symptoms are rather vague, but it seems to need an evaluation for depression and anxiety. Ask your MD.

Pins and needles: Or tingling headache. It is a part of the post concussion syndrome. Often accompanying the condition are symptoms of post-traumatic syndrome such as vertigo, blurred vision, memory impairment, reduced attention span, difficulty in concentrating, sleep disturbance, anxiety, depression, mood changes and irritability. Rec.: see an orofacial pain or headache specialist for proper treatment.

See a neurologist: I would need much more clinical information to answer your question properly, in any event you should see a clinician, preferrably a neurologist and have yourself thoroughly examined to find out what is the matter

Could stress have my head feeling weird sensations?

Could stress have my head feeling weird sensations?

Of course!: Stress causes us to feel all sorts of strange things, particularly if there is also anxiety involved in the stress. In general, there is little reason for concern, but I would certainly recommend that you let your family doc know about your symptoms.

I have been getting these weird pressure like sensations that pop up in my head that are hard to describe then go away what could it be?

I have been getting these weird pressure like sensations that pop up in my head that are hard to describe then go away what could it be?

Sometimes is hard: Those type of symptoms are always frustrating for patients. They might be hard to describe and may be just as hard to understand for the doctor. Some things we can figure out and sometimes I tell people that I just don't know what something is. You need a patient listening doctor to hear you out and see if anything comes to mind. We cant always tell people what something is but often its OK

Can anxiety give you a really weird head sensation n kinda like you pass out or lose ur self really worried it's serious I keep worrying bout it?

Can anxiety give you a really weird head sensation n kinda like you pass out or lose ur self really worried it's serious I keep worrying bout it?

See your doctor: It is very common for anxiety to manifest as physical symptoms. These physical symptoms can be scary because they mimic serious medical conditions such as a heart attack. Go see your doctor for a physical exam. Once physical problems such as thyroid disease or heart disease are ruled out, your doctor can recommend treatment for your anxiety such as medication and therapy. Best wishes!

What causes cold sensations in the head?

What causes cold sensations in the head?

Col head: You are cold headeaded From the symptoms you describe, it sounds that it could be a circulatory disturbance (due to compression of blood vessels) or a nerve pinched. This may occurs due to any clots in blood vessels, excessive alcohol use or diabetes. I would suggest evaluating all the possibilities with the help of a doctor first. Further referral to a neurologist will surely help you.
