Ok, so sometimes (and right now, for example) i'll feel like this weird tingly feeling in my head, or feel like i have too much energy in my head/brain, but no where else in my body. It is really weird, like there is a fire in my head, or ants walking around in there...I dunno, it's really hard to describe, but ti's really, really annoying. It makes it hard to fall asleep at night, because my head feels so funny. I guess this is just another anxiety state, but the lorazapam isn't really helping it much.

I get simliar feelings in my head, and most of the time only in my head, in that my head feels full of energy .

I also get the most unpleasent feeling of my head feeling like its 'splitting' or my brain going squidgy and moving about, physically really feeling that my brain is splitting up.

Understandly one of my worst symontons, and one that no one I have spoken too has a explanation for.

Almost feels like I am trying to rip away from my head almost.

:oops:

I wish my head would just hurry up and explode already, im getting bored of waiting. :twisted:

I had the same feelings during the first two years of my illness. Felt like my brain was moving around, splitting in two, etc. Exactly as you described. Fortunately, it went away as many different symptoms have come and gone.

My brain hurts sometimes, not like a headache but just like my brain is being pressurized or like it's in a vise or something. Sometimes it gets so bad that I will get a bad headache from it. :?

I have been getting the weird tingly feeling lately too. Also kind of woozy. I asked my nurologist about it today. He said it comes from breathing incorrectly and getting too much oxygen. He told me to breathe into a paper bag when this happens and it will level everything out. It is however the worst feeling. Sometimes it almost feels like an ice cream headache.

Sassy :)

Any feeling of "splitting" or "sloshing around" of you brain is all in your head.

:lol:

Migraine HEADACHES are not what I was talking about.

It's your blood vessels not your SCALP or your HAIR or your NAILS.

I thought this was commen knowledge :? .

I'm sorry, usually I just keep quiet but I coulden't help it.

Tingling of the muscles in the scalp causes the tingling feeling. If you are talking about a "headache" that is a different matter.

So a migraine is tense scalp muscles?
Not really. But it's not your brain that's in pain. Your brain does not register pain, it sends signals. I don't know the exact reason but a migraine is a pain signal by some other problem, not actual pain by an outer source to the brain itself. That's why when you say your brain is tingling, it's totally illogical because it's impossible to feel.

LOSTONE, you act like scalp muscles don't tense... ?

Happens to me all the time. Especially during strong dp/dr times. (Or stress)

Da'Burgh yes scalp muscles tense and no there are no pain nerve cells in your brain. I just think Sojourner was funny the way she put things. My mom and I have both suffered from migraines but the feeling I get from dp/dr is very diffrent than that of a migraine. What I don't understand is why dp/dr makes me feel this way. I already know why I get migraines.
Why does dp/dr affect your blood vessels in your head? Maybe it's not the dp/dr, it could be anxiety, but I had anxiety before and my head never felt this way.

Sojourner it is just funny when you make a comment like you are the authority on the matter and then say something like this.

It is usually the SCALP muscles tensing up.....period.

Your brain has NO FEELING.
I've hade the muscles in my foot tense up before to but I am not going to contribute that to a heart attack!

You have it backwards. It's the blood vessels that cause the symptoms that we call "dp/dr".

I do the necessary research on something before I comment; if anyone finds what I say to be inaccurate, I am open to correction.

I still don't see the humor, but never mind. "DP" doesn't cause anything at all. In fact, "DP" doesn't exist. What exists are the symptoms people report.

This last comment makes no sense to me. I said nothing about heart attack.

Hypertension can cause a heart attack.

Anxiety causes a racing heartbeat. A racing heartbeat over time causes constriction of the blood vessels. That can lead to a heart attack, but that was another thread, not this one.
