burning, numbness, tingling of head

I'm wondering if anyone else has these symptoms -burning, numbness, tingling and tight feeling of scalp. Now it's spreading to my face. I've had these symptoms off and on for years, but I've never had a dr who seemed to understand or take it seriously. Sometimes it's associated with dizziness and lack of balance. Putting pressure on my scalp or neck sometimes alleviates the symptoms somewhat.

I'm hoping someone understands, and maybe has some answers.

Re: burning, numbness, tingling of head


I also have the burning of the feet. Actually it goes from burning to feeling like standing on ice barefoot. I dealt with it from Aug. to Dec. then it went away and I thought it may be gone for good, but it's back and yes it is in my face and mouth. I get a tingling/tightness in my scalp that flows over my face. Just writing about it cause the feeling to appear. I've given up all alcohol drinking because of the uncomfortable feelings it causes.

Re: burning, numbness, tingling of head

I get that too. My neuropathy is in my feet, legs & hips and also in my hands and arms. That's all constant. But occasionally I can feel it on my head and face.
