    Does anyone have numbness and pain in your head. Not like a headache.
    Mostly when I wait up in the night my head as numb spots and I have bad pain for a minute or two. Sometimes feel like I could pass out. If I sit still it goes away most of the time. I some times have to use ice pack to help with the pain. The doctors said it is from FM, Put I don't read this anywhere. Anyone else have this??

    Ladyfishme,

    It is a good question cause lately I have been experience that numbness in the back of the head. It is neuralgia and somet imes called occipital neuralgia cause it is at the back of the head and mine goes up to the top of my head. It feel numb, tingling and burning at times along with my neck. Can;t stand tags or anything rubbing along my neck. I even had to take my necklace off. I see a physiatrist ( specialist in rehab. medicine and she is also an osteopath. Anyways she gives me saline injections with lidocaine and that helps. I notice that the pain gets worse when I am in a flare,

    So you are not crazy unless I am too (somedays I wonder though) Have had fibro for 2 years and per haps longer. I am in a flare that is just like when I got diagnosed.

    Best of luck to you

    Sorry to hear that you aren't doing well. I too just found out I have Fibo. I like you feel that it just going from one part of my body to another. Head,legs, ribs and heart, that are the things I went to the doctor for. It is great to hear that other people have to same things. (not that I want others to hurt like I do,but just not to feel alone) Because the doctors don't get it.
    Sometime I can't stand the feel on my shirt on my back. Yes I too have to cut the tags out of things.
    I thought maybe I had a brain tumor!! My head will get so numb and Pains.
    My family is getting tired of me complaining all the time but I hurt. Also didn't know what was wrong.
    Hope this help you to realize that you aren't alone.
    Take care!!
