    Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone else.

    Hi, I have recently been experiencing odd symptoms. I experienced the same sensation you get when your foot goes to sleep only on the back left side of my head about the size of your hand. Lasted for a few minutes just as it does when trying to get your foot to wake up. A day or so later.. i get the sensation of something moving behind my eye. Another day and the same numbness as a sleeping foot on the back of the right side of my head. Didnt last as long or as big as on the left.. but i sure am curious as to what the heck is going on. Going to the Dr on Monday.. but wondered if anyone has experienced anything like this other than me.

    How did your appointment go yesterday? Was your doctor able to determine what it is you are experiencing?

    Best wishes,

    I go for an echo tomorrow to see if i have a PFO. A little nervous about it. I have been reading and found that scuba divers have 2 to 4 times the likely hood of getting the benz if you have a PFO.. and reminded me of the deepest dive i was on coming up and feeling like I had bubble head of some sort. I knew i didnt feel right.. now i wonder if that is why.
