i keep having these strange feelings in my brain ( feels like my brain, inside my head.) its not all the time, but every few days, or once a week, sometimes less frequently i get these strange feelings, they are all over my head, the front, back, side. when i get them they last usually for a few seconds ( maybe10-15) and go away, and then a minute or two later i will have same feelings somewhere else, this goes on for a little while, then go away for a day, or two or week, then come back again.

it is hard to describ what it feels like, kind, of like if someone was poking me in the brain with finger or something, lol, it is not severe pain, usually a 4 or 5. i have told a few people this and they look at me like im nuts, i went to a doctor (at a clinic) and she too looked at me like ok.............for a while the pains actually went away but now they are back.

does anyone have any idea what this could be:confused: , i am a little hypochondriac, so i go right away to the fear it is brain cancer:( so i tried to research it but there are so many symptoms its crazy. but does anyone know what else it could be, besides me being nuts?:confused:

  • I don't think the cell phone has/had anything to do with it, but it's not a bad idea to have the wireless headphone anyway. Are you taking any medications? Meds can very often have these kinds of side-effects. Remember, medications, regardless of how well they treat a condition, are foreign substances to our bodies and our bodies will often have a reaction.- Good luck to all.
