Posted on Tue, 7 Feb 2017
Question: Hi I need help from a neurologist. I have tension in my skull, the muscles around my chin to some extent are not as firm and pronounced in terms of making fine movements and some areas around the eyebrows. I have tension in the skull and have had pressure in the front of the skull and back and still even some of the muscles in the back of the skull do not seem like they are activating. Perhaps Ibam not pressing properly or trying to see I am not sure. I have had heaviness in the legs and woken up with numbness in my hand or another part of the body like the right calf. The hand was the left hand. I don't know if it had to do with skeeping in an uncomfortable postion. I I have also been exposed to marihuana and poasibly other druugs but marihuana I could smell in the apartment. Please tell me what I can do.

Brief Answer:
Take steps as advised and get examined and evaluated by a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Headache seems to be tension type or drug withdrawal headache.
Bodyache may also be due to the marijuana intake.

You should breath in fresh air outside, take plenty of Fluids, vitamin supplements and Amitryptiline(prescription drug).

You need to visit to a neurologist for detailed examination and evaluation for further assessment.

Is there any vomiting, nausea, sensitivity to light or sound ?
Duration of symptoms ?
Any loss of consciousness, seizures, visual loss ?
Any previous medical illness ?

Please provide any other details and medical history, if available.

Hi I don't have a body ache sir and thank you for your answer it's overall pretty good but I woke up with numbness in the right hand once and numbness in right calf once. The muscles in the face seems somewhat atrophied as the fine movements are not so pronounced. I did not do the drugs myself but had marihuana in my apartment for weeks for some reason and possibly something else. The heaviness in the legs and other symptoms also appeared.

Hello,
Subjective numbness needs to confirmed on examination and need of a neurologist is there.
If no intake of marijuana, then the problem doesn't seems to be of serious nature.
