Customer Question

When I'm very stressed, it feels like the right side of my head/scalp has spasms. My index finger on my left hand used to twitch as well. Also, when I lay on my stomach my hands and arms go numb. Once I move on to my back, they're good. Any idea? I'm afraid it's maybe Parkinson's or something else. I'm a 40 yr old female.

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your condition.
There can be a few possibilities for your symptoms.
Anxiety can be associated with headache, muscle spasm.
Twitching of muscles can occur too.
If only one side of head or scalp is affected then migraine can be a possibility.
Other conditions like dysttonia, MND, MS etc need to be rued out.
I would suggest to take an examination by neurologist.
Please avoid anxiety & stress.
I hope this information helps.
