Weird sensation at temple area of head

So for the past month or so ive been having these weird sensations in my temples. Its not pain like a headache its more of a numbness, like a dizzy feeling in my temples but not really being dizzy. And its always in both temples. Its hard to explain. 90% of the time it happens when im laying down at night. So im not sure if its related to my neck or what. Any ideas? Thanks

Dear Mikey,

Without being able to examine you I am afraid there is no way I could say what the problem is - but it certainly can be related to the neck.

If it gets worse then we can definitely treat you if it is from the neck.
