It's on the right side of my head and for the last 3 days I've had waves of tingling, almost like you'd feel if you suddenly got a chill in your head - like a breeze or rush of cold air. It lasts for maybe 10 seconds, then fades and then maybe a a half hour later, it returns. Other times it's back within 5 minutes.

I can only think of two rational things for this: 1. I slept with the fan blowing toward me Tuesday night (it's Friday) and that gave me a chill in the head/ ear canal or

2. It's some sort of menopausal/hormonal thing (just got my period). I'm 47 and in deep perimenopause.

It's annoying me. There's no numbness or anything else associated with this - except some pain in my shoulders and back but I always have that.

Can anyone help me figure this out?:eek:
