Your head sensations sound somewhat like mine. Occasionally now I have weird numb sensations on my head, particularly the left side though it can vary. This started a couple of years ago. Recently I awoke with a "numb" spot on the left side of my head and it stayed that way all day and into the next.

I actually have a friend who says she, too, has had these weird "numbness' sensations around her head. I have arthritis in my upper back, am prone to migraines, have scoliosis, and a ruptured disk in lower back. I also suffer anxiety. Since rupturing the disk I've had problems with my left leg (severe sciatica at times and more numbness at others) and sometimes my left arm feels numb or "heavy."

I have pain and/or almost total numbness in the second toe of my left foot. Sometimes pain affects the right sided second toe as well. This is worse when it's cold outside. I think ALL of this is due to nerve damage throughout the nervous system.

I'd blame the head numbness on an incident last year when my car door slammed into the side of my head during a windstorm, nearly knocking me out. However, the sensations PRE-DATE that event! My doc said I was "fine" at the time.

The funny thing about all these "numb" feelings is that the various areas are NOT truly numb. They just feel numb but when touching the areas, I definitely have plenty of "feeling."

Who can figure this out? I'd say it's MS but I just started having these sensations a few years ago and I'm now nearly 56!

After much research I have found that there are a number of people who do have degrees of MS but the disease is never diagnosed because it is so variable and hard to diagnose unless symptoms are classic. Plus, so much else can go wrong with the nervous system, that it's anybody's guess.

For now, I just try to ignore this stuff and press on. Good luck with your own "numbness."
