Weird Head Feeling.... And Numbness/tingling!!!

Posted , 13 users are following.

So does anyone on here experience the weird head and numbness with tingling? Maybe you have just the weird head or maybe you have just the numbness or both, can you explain what it feels like when you experience it? Does it come and go, do you have dizziness with it?? I hear so many different ladies talk about the weird head and numbness /tingling , but never really explained in detail just that they have it.. For me the weird head feels like it can strike really anytime but more so if I go into a store and the lights may bring it on, my head feels tight and almost like its buzzing, then I feel off balanced /dizzy, my face and head will get numb and tingling, and not just into a store could happen anytime and anywhere, at home as well.. Just wondering how it feels to everyone else and how often you may be experiencing these symptoms...

    I have had a year of weird head. It started one day at the computer with a brain zap of a second. It morphed over the year. First dizziness in my head, hard to explain, not like the room was turning around. I got a heavy kind of tired and numb feeling around my right eye, on and off. Bright lights brought it in as did stores with shelves of goods, or wide spanses. I suggest you read about silent migraine, vestibular problems such as vestibular neuritis or migraine. There are excellent FB forms on all these. Anxiety is usually a symptom that follows and there are ways to take care of it all usually, although not always. Anxiety is horrid and hard to overcome.

      Hi Lana, I have definitely read about the silent migraines and believe I have them with the pain as well,MAV I get the vertigo not the spins thank god , but the vertigo dizzy while turning to quick, and never had this before.. The lights do bring this on badly!! I think I experienced my first head zap about a month ago while sitting down with my mother at her doctor appointment, it was so quick but there for sure scared me bad, and went home to eat thought it might be low blood sugar.. Have your episodes gone away now or something that is lived with?? Thanks for your reply..

    Also forgot to ad , do these episodes prevent you from doing your normal routine? Or for me I find myself using the shopping cart for support, like I will not walk thru the store without one, it has become my crutch so to speak for fear I will fall over or faint, its never happened but has me scared it will, or I just skip the big stores all together and just dart in and out of a small convenient store.. Anyone else??

    Hello

    I have weird off balance, ground moving, feeling like I could pass out symptoms. I used to love to shop but not anymore. Large supermarkets are the worst. Tried to explain it to my doctor and he gave me a strange look.

    Today I drove to my local supermarket to collect an order. This is something I wouldn’t have done for several months but I made myself go. Yes I did feel funny in there but I did it and made it home alive. Massive success.  I am now sitting in the garden in the sun feeling very proud of myself. 

    If I had read this post a few years ago, I would have thought I was crazy. Seriously, how hard is shopping.

    Glad to know I am not alone but it seriously sucks that we all have to suffer.

    Hi Gypsy...

    You ain't alone!! I woke this morning with my own version of the head weirdness. I too get that almost wooziness type feeling on most days. I hate it!!! Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm off balance. Occasionally I feel a strange buzzing sensation. Sometimes I actually shake my head as if to clear away the foggyness....its all so darn annoying! These symptoms cause our anxiety! But as long as tests say all is normal, I try to not scan my body for symptoms. Prayer helps steady me.

    So be sure to mention to your GPA and your gyne, but I'm telling you it's more peri and meno crap. Hugs!!

      Oh thank you Katy for reassuring me I'm not alone in this journey... It really makes the anxiety climb thru the roof I tell ya.. Yes I believe all this did start when I reached 45 so just has to be Peri meno all though I think back now to my early 40s and had a lot of other symptoms I just didn't put together until now.. Must have always been this menopause all along I'm sure..

I've taken blood pressure at those times and nothing , you'd think I'd be high but really on the lower side always ... Yucky stuff this meno..😥

    I also got a weird sensation when watering my garden, between the spraying water and the leaves swaying in the wind. Dr didn't hear about that one tho, lol, too weird. I did vrt exercises for months. It is a lot better now, but I am left with a loss in self confidence, which never was an issue, and due to so many screenings, which I'm still going through and they never end, a bad health anxiety. I never let it stop my routine except one day this year, and that may have helped it. I still get an occasional wooziness or whatever it is.

      Lol your funny, yes some of this you just have to keep to yourself it doesn't help telling the doctor anyway they wouldn't understand unless its a female going through the same... But that's all part of the vertigo I read so don't feel too alone with the leaves , I get the dizzys when the sunlight bounces off the trees , when it snows or rains , my new big screen tv from the LCD lights they use in the new tv's (doesn't happen with older tv's) so all very weird but I get it.. 😀

    I don’t get numbness but I have a constant ringing in my left ear and when it’s warm out I have a buzzy feeling in my head. My eyes are tired feeling all the things me too.

    I can relate to everyone's comments! The weird head, dizziness has been my worst symptom for several years...both during perimenopause and post. I am 3 years post and I still suffer with it, though not at often. Unless someone has experienced it, it is so hard to explain and I don't feel doctors recognize it enough as being hormone related. It can definitely bring on anxiety, which is something else I revisited during all this, especially health anxiety! What makes me feel "better" is that my sister is almost identical with her symptoms. We both have never had a hot flash, but suffer with dizzy heads. Ugh. Hugs to all the ladies on here and I'm very grateful to come to this forum. Even though I wouldn't wish this nonsense on anyone, it helps to know I'm not alone! ?

      I am having "weird" head and tingling in my extremities. These posts describe it so well! It's very hard to explain if you haven't experienced it. It's just so comforting to find others with my symptoms.
