Dr I had a weird feeling in my brain last night... a feeling

Customer Question

Dr I had a weird feeling in my brain last night... a feeling of somewhat pressure/pulsations and it has lingered still even after I woke up. It's very mild, but uncomfortable

I've had it come and go for about a week now.

I was on Cipro,, and took a few pills of Lorezapam at times.

There was a sequence about a week ago where I drank cold water and felt pulsations in my brain and then some leg twitching/shaking for about a minute. that episode has not been repeated though.

I have been under a lot of stress and anxiety.

I smoke.

My sleep patterns haven't been regular for about 10 days now. I seem to wake up every 2-3 hours, never seeming to enter a quality deep sleep. I do have dreams though.


What might be my problem and what should I do? I am very worried about a brain hemmorhage or something along those lines..

any chance this is related to the ciprofloaxcin?

I took a 10 day course... 19 pills
