Post Burning & *****ling feeling in my forehead & dizzyness, what is wrong?

I have to use my memory at work... who doesnt... I just started a new Job.

When my boss explains what she wants done after 2/3 details I have funny

sensations in my fore head like Burning and *****ling which I can handle... But

when she gets detailed and gives me more and more things to remember to

keep me busy, with each thing she adds it gets harder to see her as I cant fix my eyes on her, my fore head burns and *****les on fire, I get dizzy and sometimes it feels like I my feet will dissapear under me or I will fall head first to one side. (I wonder what she thinks is going on?) Its a little scary sometimes.

Also sometimes my brain feels like there are waves and wobbles and strange sensations passing through it.

The burning and *****iling is in one spot one inch above my right eye (and seems to grow) and above my left eye all over and sometimes in the top of

my head... afterwards as I try to keep in mind what I have to do it can

continue and also happen on the side of my right eye and temple and the dizzyness can last a while, and sometimes comes and goes all day when I try to remember things. It gets a little hard to focus and think sometimes, sometimes I lose track of what Im saying in the middle of talking to people which appears a little mental sometimes, and my vocabulary has gone to pot over the last 6 years.

P.S. Oh and Ive been fired from 22 jobs within a 6 year period, I cant seem to hold a job down, and my memory has alot to do with it. I need help.

Re: Burning & Pricling in my forehead & dizzyness, what is wrong?

BTW, Im only 27, so its not age catching up on me this started when I was 20. One day just a few weeks ago I completely snaped and for a couple of seconds I didnt know where I was, why, what week it was, what day... I knew who I was I deffinately knew that. It only lasted a second, and when it passed I had the symptoms mentioned above and I tried to carry on as normal and mannaged to remember what I had to do next. I can sense when it is likely to occur but I have to carry on, focus and use my brain to do my job so I kinda push on and hope it doesnt happen. I havnt been put under the same pressure since, but I know I will eventually and if it happens when my boss is talking to me, I might stagger under the dizzyness, rub my forehead, not know what she was saying or maybe even whats going on and she would think I'd lost my mind or something. :.(

Re: Burning & *****ling feeling in my forehead & dizzyness, what is wrong?

As you listed this post under brain and head injury, I have to ask if you've had any kind of head trauma prior to the onset of all these symptoms. And given that this has been going on for six years, have you seen a doctor at any point? If not, I'd consider seeing a neurologist. Some of the symptoms you listed -- losing words in conversation, inability to remember or organize multiple tasks at work, dizziness and balance issues, and even a sense of panic when you realize you can't keep up -- are some of a long list of symptom that accompany post concussive syndrome. It can last as short at a few months or can last for years if not addressed. Some of your symptoms are not ones I've heard associated with head trauma, however. And especially if you've never bumped your head, you need to find out what's going on. Start with your family doctor and ask to be referred to a neurologist who can hopefully determine what's going on. Don't let something like this ruin your future. Get to the doctor, please.

Re: Burning & *****ling feeling in my forehead & dizzyness, what is wrong?

Ive put this in brain / head injury because thats where I feel this fits into because Ive had some experiences where Ive never felt the same afterwards all arround 6 - 8 years ago.

1. I was beaten up, a witness said my head bounced almost a foot of the floor when I went down. I experienced global amnesia every 2minutes for arround 45 mins. Reasoning and thinking for me have never been the same, and a great personality change.

2. I was beaten up again outside a night club, hit and kicked on the floor and recieved a concussion, I was high on marijuana and motherless drunk at the same time, my ability to handle pressure working as a chef and working at speed on computers was not the same after.

3. I smoked some shockingly strong marijuana and was paralised and holucinated for arround 4 hours, my mental capacity seemed a mess since, like bieng in a maze that I cant get out.

4. 7 years ago I took some LSD that was meant for 3/4 people and nothing happened, but I was told that in such cases the effects can last up to 10 years, but I dont know.

The pain in my brain started after the first incident but very slight, and have only become a concern in the last few years, and of great concers in the last 6 months. Im sprehensive about going to the doctor because I dont want anything on my medical record that may interfere with my career, insurance costs and medical cover costs. Ive heared that people can recover from things like this, but I just seem to be getting worse.

Re: Burning & *****ling feeling in my forehead & dizzyness, what is wrong?

I'm by no means a medical professional. But it certainly sounds like it could be post-concussive syndrome at the very least. And your drug encounters after the injury did little to help your brain in its recovery. I understand your concerns about making your history known. But at some point you'll have to weigh those risks against the damage your current job performance will eventually have on your career, or your ability to hold down a job at all. And, more importantly, there's the risk to your health by not seeing a specialist and finding out what's really going on. If your symptoms are related to something like post-concussive syndrome, your recovery at this point depends largely on getting the appropriate therapy that will teach you how to retrain your brain and give you techniques for compensating and keeping up at work. I'm doing that now and it's making a big difference for me. Think about it. I wish you well and hope you make the right decision for you.
