About 1 year ago I woke with what felt like a severe hangover (except I hadn't been drinking) and since then have been suffering daily headaches and numbness to the right side of my head with the following symptoms:-
Numb feeling above and behind my ear and to the back of my skull.
Sometimes a stabbing pain in my right temple.
Occasionally a tingling feeling down the right side of my face
After initial diagnosis of tension headache I was prescribed amotryptaline which has been gradually increased to 60mg.
Eventually I was referred to a neurologist who did a physical examination, agreed with the tension headache diagnosis and refused me a scan.
Since then my symptoms have roughly remained the same and only occasionally feel worse, but they are ever present on a daily basis.Please could anyone out there with similar symptoms or any knowledge of what may be the cause, please respond to this message..... I will be grateful for anything that will help me find a solution.
Many thanks, Dave.
