Suddenly - Symptoms and Sensations

I suddenly have a feeling between my right ear and right temple that there is a large serrated sword sticking into my head. OUCH! Yet another random neurological MonSter pain? Who knows. Time for another small dose of painkillers.

Another MonSter (maybe) thing that I keep meaning to document (for the last few years!) is the feeling/sound/sensation that there is a tap dripping in the top of my neck / back of my head (the brain-stem area). I hear it most lying in bed but it is almost always there unless there is too much other ambient noise around me to hear/feel it.

Also, my restless leg syndrome (RLS) at night has graduated top of its class and is now a restless and randomly twitching / spasming whole-body syndrome. As soon as I lie down in bed to sleep it begins and so it seems to be whenever I totally relax my body - which probably means that I never usually fully relax my body at any other time.

Coincidentally, I am seeing my neurologist on Wednesday and so I will try to remember to take a printout of this with me!

I can tell you that after having shingles on my face and then trimengal neuralgia, there are times that it feels as if an elephant is standing on my head/face. Increasing neurontin/gabapentin helps with this tremendously.

I also have that drip, drip, drip at the base of my head behind the sinuses. Coincidentally, docs say it truly is my sinuses and due to periodic allergies. It just seems more annoying than troublesome.
