Since August '06, I have been experiencing intermittent "pops"/"bursts" (for lack of a better description) in the back of my head, lasting seconds. Immediately after pop, my fingers tingle for seconds. Then all is well. These pops feel like sudden lightheadedness, dizziness. I not lose consciousness or fall down. In the past couple of weeks, a few times, the tingling has occurred in my forearms and across my chest. I also have occassional dizziness that one neurologist has diagnosed as migraine associated vertigo. I have had migraines for 15 years. No chest or heart symptoms, no headache during or after the "pop". I am currently receiving physical therapy for the vertigo. I have had an mri/mra, baer hearing test and an eeg. All normal. I am under the care of 2 neurologists and my primary phy. that cannot figure it out. Even after these tests coming back normal, I am fearful that something really is wrong.
