Not sure if this is something I should be concerned about. This morning I woke up with the left top side of my head feeling numb and/or "pins and needles" feeling. I've been up for a while now and the feeling is still there on that side of my head.
I'm a bit worried about it. Don't want to fall down dead or something.
The same thing happened about two weeks ago where the numbness was in the same area but spread to the left side of my face. That lasted about 10-15 minutes and it went away.
I do have some issues with my upper spine (2-3 of the vertebrae are fused together and pressing on my spine). I also have a fluid filled sac at the back of my brain (the neurologist that I saw said that I didn;t have anything to worry about that). This was about 3-4 years ago. Since then I really haven't had any major issues (except for sporadic periods of numbness and tingling in my hands and arms) until lately.
I had a complete workup done of my brain and spine about four years ago. They did MRI's of my brain and spinal cord. I even had a CT scan done of my brain.
The issue of my vertebrae pressing on my spine causes numbness and tingling in my arms, hands and legs. Only way to correct that is through sugery to separate the fused vertebrae (I'm afraid of spinal surgery). The last few years, I've suffered with sporadic numbness and tingling in my hands, arms, and legs.
This new numbness and tingling on the top of my head and left side of my head, worries me.
Anybody have these issues? I'm hoping I am NOT developing a tumor or something like that.
