burning sensation inside my head?

a few months back i experienced this unpleasant burning sensation inside my head and along the back of my neck, it felt like my brain was on fire, and i became disoriented. i had that happen to me again today, and i'm a little concerned. has this happened to anyone before? any ideas on what it could be?

Re: burning sensation inside my head?

I don't want to freak you out here really,but you DO need to see your doc for an eval on this.honestly,when i developed a brain aneurysm,i had no pre headaches or any actual pain,but what i did have a few different times,was this freaky head wierdness accompanied by this very distinct burning flush that was like at the back of my head then it just dissapated down my neck.like a heat flush?if nothing else,i really do think that getting at the very least an MRI with contrast or an MRA which only highlights the arterial structures and nothing else really does need to be obtained.For you,the MRIwith contrast would probably be the best way to go since getting a full look at your brain at the beginning would be able to also rule out or in any other possible problems causing these symptoms.but it really really needs to be done.like i said,i am not trying to give you a heart attack here or anything(this is just a possibility and nothing else)but when i read your symptoms,i honestly thought this was what you have,just because it is exactly the way my aneurysm presented in me last year.there ARE certain treatments availiable so don't get too worried,K? but please,just get this fully evaluated.most peoplewhohave aneurysms in their brains don't even know it til they get big enough to either bleed or start causing things like siezures or other major medical problems.the sooner you can find out you have one,the better for any good outcome.mine was considered to be pretty small,but if my neurosurgeon had not thought to just send me for the MRA scan,i probably never would have known since i also have some pretty significant spinal cord damage and get strange neuro stuff all the time.but i am also at high risk for aneurysm so he just sent me as a precaution.and the rest is history.the sooner you go,the better for you and the smaller it would be which makes them more treatable and less likely to rupture.i wish you luck with this.just get this evaluated and that MRI WITH contrast.the contrast will help to highlight the arteries within the brain,this is what you really do need.if nothing else,just having the actual MRI will either rule it out or in.either way,you should knowwhat may be causeing your symptoms.aneurysms don't always present the same exact way in every patient.my particular symptoms just happened to mimic what you are having,thats all.please let me know how things are going,K?Marcia

Re: burning sensation inside my head?

Hi there
talking about aneurysms is freaky...I got this SEVER head burning I really thought I had this FIre inside my brain, did mri and mra and nothing was there, I was 100% healthy and the Dr told me there's nothing wrong with me, but I still had this ugly feeling that Made me anxious all the time and obsessed about it, that was a year ago, Now I just put myself into test and realised it's my eyes who's causeing all of this sensation, I realised when I stress my eyes over work the sensation starts and it takes a whole day to calm down, sometimes not only my brain, my ears turn red and my eyes feels worm, I took 10 days holiday and said I wont stress my eyes the sensation 80% gone, but not COMPLETELY cause I can still recall the feeling, but it wasn't aneurysms to assure you, It was all stress and If you're a person who worries a lot this is also a reason, Wont harm you to do MRI AND MRA better check them out and god help you with that noisy 20 minutes of noisy experiance but you'll be happy when you undcerstand that's it's no biggy.
Rock on.

Re: burning sensation inside my head?


I wish I had the solution for you. But, I also wonder if by now you may have already found the reason and cure, because an acquaintance of mine is experiencing the same symptoms. And, since she is technophobic and unfamiliar with the Internet, I took it upon myself to do some search for her online. If by now you have found the reason behind those symptoms and how to cure them, it would be wonderful of you to share the knowledge. Thanks very much. Wishing you the best. ~ Ray

I wish I had the solution for you. I wonder if you have yet seen an allergy/immunology specialist?!!! But, I also hope that by now you may have already found the reason and cure. The fact is that an acquaintance of mine is experiencing the same symptoms. And, since she is technophobic and unfamiliar with the Internet, I took it upon myself to do some search for her online.

Re: burning sensation inside my head?

I would look into epilepsy also, sounds like it could be a type of partial seizure
