Have electrical sensations in head, history of HTN and trigeminal neuralgia. What is this?

Hello Doctor, I have been having these diffuse little electrical sensations in my head, like I am about to short circuit. It’s a little hard to explain. It seems to be positional, when I stand up and start walking, sudden movement. It is sometimes followed by a feeling of the blood rushing to my head and pressure for a few minutes, like my blood pressure spikes. I have a history of HTN controlled with lisinopril and Trigeminal Neuralgia controlled with Lyrica , and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and on Levothyroxine . I am a 52 y/o female. Can you shed some light on what this might be?

Neurologist 's  Response
Your symptoms may be due to trigminal neuralgia itself which is not controlled completely. you have not mentioned whether currently you are on medication for trigeminal neuralgia. If you are already on medication for that you may have to be change to a higher dose or another medication. You should visit your neurophysician and he will be able to help you.
Good luck.
