    Re: tingling head/feeling faint

    Hi my mom has had some of the symptoms you describe here and no doctor has been able to diagnose her so far.

    She gets 3 different scenarios of symptoms:
    a) Stiffness in her right foot, followed by a burning sensation up to her knee and then high blood pressure
    b) Tingling of her right foot, especially her 3 middle toes, in parallel her right hand starts tingling also 3 of her fingers. Then a sensation of weak knees and overall a fainting feeling. Dizziness, her body movements slow down. She feels a very heavy head.
    c)As an additional after effect she gets a tingling head in the front or back.
    After each of these attacks she feels a bad stomach, burping reflex.
    Panic episodes come too after or during these attacks.
    She was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid, and is taking some medication for it. But the symptoms do not disappear.

    She has had cardio tests and brain scans, nothing came out. Could it be multiple sclerosis? What about epilepsy, or a compressed nerve in her back?
    Any other possible conditions?

    Does your mom have any neck or back pain on a regular basis, or any numbness, tingling, weakness, burning sensations other than when she has these episodes?

    Hi again
    My mom now went to a neurological specialist. He determined she has neuritis, an inflammation of a nerve. She is on medicine now and her symptoms have disapeared. She will be under observation for a month, until end of January. The doctor says the symptoms may re-occur iin the first three months of treatment. They are however harmless and the condition is not life threatening or anything. I understand that it feels really awful.
    We will wait and see now.
