Numb Head/Skull…..

So yesterday evening, I was lying down and my whole skull just went heavy (just like when we get numbness and pins and needles/burning). I couldn’t feel my whole skull. This has never happened to that area before. It has on my arm, hand, foot, face.
I tried to contact my MS Nurse today but she’s on annual leave.
Has anyone experienced anything like this??
Bit scared and worried.

n1t1 , sensory symptoms are nothing new with MS, as you know. But, this one has obviously got you a bit concerned.

Is is still occurring today? If so, then call your Neuro’s secretary and ask if there is any support for you whilst your MS Nurse is on holiday. 😉

@stumbler I’ve just been to the GP and she was slightly concerned – so she is contacting my Neurologist today.
I know by worrying – I’m not helping myself really.
And yep – sensory symptoms are nothing new 🙁
I’m just feeling a bit down and really fed up today

@n1t1 , this condition gets us all down from time to time.

But, with your GP now onside, I’m sure you’ll have that lovely smile back soon. 😉

@stumbler – My GP just called and the neurologist wants me to go in next week and just assess me. I will smile soon.
Thanks for your messages

Hi @n1t1 , I have been living with a numb brain /can’t feel my head/can’t feel my neck,etc etc since the whole of Jan/feb 2015…
Numbness around skull is common when your lesions move around, but obviously your Neuro can tell best after examination.
I had a MS relapse/new lesion on my brainstem (according to my latest routine MRI report) and have skull numbness since, according to my neuro/hospital.
