Has your head ever gone numb????


Just wondering how common this is. Has anyone ever had their head fall asleep like how an arm or a leg does?

Mine is right now... I've been studying for MedSurg finals for the past week...

hmmm... but seriously, no... not like an arm or leg.... arms and legs fall asleep because of lack of blood supply... if the head is not getting a blood supply I would worry about unconsciousness....

Or are you talking about the face? The head is a broad term.

No, I'm talking about the head. Sometimes the front of it, sometimes the back of the head. Now that I think about it, there was a time in my life where I kept fainting for no reason but it doesn't occur anymore. Just the numbness.
