Re: Head numbness
Apr 24, 2007
Hi, Bella. A couple of things: The "electric shock" sensation, does that happen when you bend your neck forward (like putting your chin to your chest)?
Regarding head numbness, I get that sometimes, mainly the back side of my head. Pretty freaky, isn't it!
Also, I friend of my mother's was diagnosed with fibro. At the time I knew nothing at all about fibro OR MS. I thought she was a whiney old lady. Knowing what I know now (about the similarities between the 2 disorders) I am so ashamed of my prior opinion! I know now that she was very strong, wish I could see her again and tell her how much I admire her...
Finally (I know, more than "a couple" of things!) I lived next door to the most beautiful, adorable autistic little boy for about 5 years. Watched him grow from 1 to 6, never heard him speak a word. It took some time to gain his trust, but well worth the time. I loved little Johnny. A very cool thing was when he got a baby brother, 2 years younger. As they grew the littler guy would speak for both of them - he truly understood his big brother. I often remember a time when John did something wrong and got yelled at, the little guy came running to his mom and dad and declared, "WE're SORRY!"
I've only just "met" you, Bella, and I already feel inspired by you. Please, stay in touch!

Lilc,

I don't really get the sensation when i bend my head, but usually if I've had a rough day, gotten over a cold, or had my monthly friend. :rolleyes: Then the sparks start to fly throughout my body. I used to think I had the chills, and I'd put on sweaters or blankets, only to feel overheated but still tingly. Just recently I began to get the numb spots on my head. I thought I was having a stroke or something, and that really freaked me out!! I sometimes get this rush of heat up the back of my neck too, and it can radiate down my arms and across my chest or spine. I had an ulnar injury a several years ago and ever since then my hand hasn't been back to normal either.

Kids are so sweet and understanding when they are younger. I have the opposite scenario here. My older one is very high functioning, so much so that you can barely tell he has it. His is classified as asperger's syndrome. Now my younger son has moderate Autism and behaves about 4 yrs behind his actual age. So, it's a challenge, but so are most of the things worth doing in life. ;) I do have more on my plate besides the kids. My husband also has bipolar disorder and asperger's as well, so there's alot of chaos to contend with. This is why I told nikki I don't have anyone I can really rely on if something happens to me.

I feel blessed to have found this board and look forward to talking more with all of you.

Thanks for the warm welcome!


Oh, and Nikki, I would have called the Neuro today, but my Dad was rushed to the ER and I had to go with my Mom. I definitely plan on calling tomorrow!
