Sharp Pain then numbness
brodey posted:
I have always had this happen, but I finally want to know why. Sometimes when move my head to fast, I get this sharp pain behind my ear (sometimes both) and a few seconds later it feels like a water balloon popped inside my head and all this liquid is draining, then the side of my tongue closest to the "popped" side goes numb. This only last about five minutes or so. I'm just curious on what it is called so I can find more information on it.
