Re: Head Numbness
First of all, I can't believe I found someone with the same nightmare!! You have got to get back to me! I am much older than you. I know exactly how you feel! I am 39, but used Ice for 2 months about 20 years ago, when I was about 19. Ever since then I have had a numbness in the brain that made me feel like part of my brain died! The numbness was just strange in the beginning, but I slowly started to experience memory problems and it seems to get worse as the years go by. (not to worry too much, it was over a period of 20 years and my memory issues are not severe, but enough that it disrupts my day) I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but am now coming to realize that it's not really that although I have had similar symptoms. I still have no clue what this is, but determined to find out. Like you, I was taking Gabepentin and was told not much I could do. Exercise helps, but does not eliminate it completely. I just went to see my doctor today and am going in for testing. I have done this about 5 years ago, with no answers, so I am going to keep trying. If you found out anything, please let me know. I will let you know I find out anything new.
By the way--glad to hear from someone that I can relate to.
