Rare and random occurring numbness and dizziness on top of head
BillReedz posted:
It only occurs whenever I'm straining, like throwing a baseball or turning around quickly, one side of the top of my head feels numb and I feel mild dizziness for just a few minuites, and after that I feel completley normal.

It occurs around once a month, it's random and rare. I don't drink and I rarely take any medicine.

Does anyone know these strains are?

Thank you so much, -bill

Hi Bill,

Has your doctor checked your neck and shoulder (throwing arm side)? Does it occur when you turn your head, such as to look over the backseat when backing up a car?
