    Head numbness

    Hello, I'm new to this site having finally been diagnosed with MND in July 2020. I struggled with symptoms for the previous two years but, despite lots of tests, I was assured there was nothing serious to worry about. My biggest problem now, apart from weakness in my arms, is a terrible numb feeling in my head and neck. Despite trying several types of prescribed painkillers, doctors seem unable to offer help. Does anyone else suffer in this way?

    Have you tried amitriptyline hydrochloride? I use it and after my evening dose I feel no pain until the following afternoon. πŸ‘πŸ˜x

        Welcome to the Forum, Baz.

        Numbness, as you describe, isn't really associated with MND - were you diagnosed with the ALS form of MND?

        Don't put everything down to being related to MND - we still get other ailments too. I wonder if a physiotherapist would be of use, given that your GP can't help? What did the Neurologist say?

        Good luck.

        Love Ellie.

          Thanks for the suggestion, I have tried this without successes. I'm currently taking Tramodol but this doesn't seem to help either

            Hi Ellie, I have been diagnosed with ALS. I've seen three different neurologists before diagnosis, all giving different opinions. Thanks for the suggestion of a physiotherapist. I've now been offered pain management which starts this week, hoping this may help!

              Welcome to the forum Baz from another Baz aka Barry52. Sorry I can’t comment on your question but maybe I can help with further information.
              I’m going to do this even if it kills me!
