    migraine or something else?
    auturiel posted:
    I was in the hospital about a month ago for a severe headache. The doctor did a CT scan and a spinal tap but everything came out negative. Then about 4 days ago I was back in the ER with the same symptoms. The doctor had another CT scan done (this time iodine based) and tons of blood work taken. Once again everything came back negative. apparently there is nothing life threatening going on. i am now experiencing tingling, burning, and sometimes a weird popping sensation followed by short dizzy spells. But also some pressure in the front od my head by my eyes and temples. The one doctor told me I might have severe anxiety disorder.Can anyone give me any ideas as to what might be going on? Thanks.
