Question: I have a tingling sensation on the left side of my head

 Amber F 25 - Sun Aug 26, 2007 1:13 pm

Hi I am a 25 yr old female I don't have any known med history of this problem, But I have had migraines in the past but not since I had my son almost 7 yrs ago. and I am not on any medication.
For the past few days now I have been having this kinda warm tingling sensation on the top left side of my head it happens for about 30-40 seconds maybe longer then there is kinda of a sharp pain that starts sharp then goes away. The tingling sensation almost feels like something is crawling on my head or it is about to go numb.. Then it just goes away.. Do you know what could be causing this?

User avatar Hi Amber F 25,

There are a few possibilities. I am suspicious that you may be having a variant of a migraine or even a seizure.

I would recommend you see a neurologist for further evaluation of this.

Best wishes.
