    Tingling in back of head w/migraine

    I have had my headache constantly for 19 +months now. It never goes away. I have seen my PCP and a neurologist. I had a MRI and it was fine. I have tried many medications and nothing has worked.

    I have had a migraine for the last 3 days (not uncommon for me). The part that is different is this time I am having a tingling feeling in the back of my head that is constant. Then I also have the feeling like you do when you are falling (but that feeling comes and goes). I was wondering if these new symptoms would mean I should go to the dr. Or if this is just a normal part of the headache?

    Thanks Jessica

    I've had migraines for about 25 years now, I really think that any new or different kind of headache should be checked out by your doctor. A tingling feeling in the back of your head can be caused by occipital neuralgia, this is treatable.

    Take care, Annette
