What could it be. I think, I think I have a pinched nerve somewhere. In my chest or neck. I get numbness and pain in chest and arm. Docs are hopefully gonna figure it out today.

My question is why do I get this sudden very cold pain in the back of my head??? The mri showed nothing abnormal, but it is not normal. Its like a cold lightning. Can anxiety of stress cause this?? Or a pinched nerve? It hurts and it localized to one area. Last 1-2 seconds and comes and goes.

  • Its a lot of money. But the neuro just shrugged his shoulders at this and did a muscle/nerve test on me. Found no reasons why my arm and chest go numb and hurt! Guess its in my head huh!

  • I have the exact same problem! It feels like a piece of ice is on the top of my head for 1-3 seconds. Happens about 1-2 times a day. It doesn't hurt but is really annoying. I also have dull pain in my left arm and left breast at times. I see you posted this last year but did u ever find out what it was? Thank you for your help!

  • Well in my case it looks like tmj and neck problems. If you have any jaw pain or clicking, or if your mouth opens crooked you should look into it. I'm not out of the forrest yet, but better for sure. Also neck pain and tightness can cause a lot of that too. Do you have neck pain? Does heat help?

  • Have you ever heard of a Chiari Malformation? Alot of Drs overlook it but it does cause all the problems your having. Have them look at the MRI again and ask them specifically if you have any about of Chiari.. even the slightest herniation can cause strange symptoms.. hope this helps good luck!

Thank you for your help!I have the same thing. its on the left side of my head. This is how i explained it to my mum that is feels like someone has put ice on my head for about 1-3 secs. and my left boob also hurts. but also on my left leg if something touches it funny. i get patches of goose bumps and only on my left leg. I have no idea what it is? Did you find out what it is?
