    I've suffered with panic attacks for 8 years and, don't mean to worry you, that's one symptom I've never had.

    It's a strange one that, I would have asked if you'd banged your head recently or had any twinges in it?

    It could be something as simple as a trapped nerve or muscle damage.

    Just to be sure id go see your doctor, might be nothing or it might be something, I don't know.

    Let me know how you get on though.

    Glad to see you went to a doctor, danielle.  I suffer from mites, and have had the same kind of tingling and experiences which you post.  I even have a purplish-red mark, like a birth mark but it is not that, on the same spot on the back of my head, just above the neck, under the hair.

    While doctors think my problem is pschosomatic with the mite (parasitosis), it is not.  The feelings I have, I believe are associated with mites burrowing under my skin and form a colony.  When the nearby nerves are pushed, there are tinglings from the spot I touched, to other spots associated with the nearby nerve being pressed.  Happens a lot, at least to me.
