Anyone else feel static in the brain?

Hey i have a question for all my witches and wizards… Does or has anyone ever felt this very uncomfortable static sensatation in the brain? It happened to me last night my husband asked why i didn’t read my book and went to bed early… It was like the old box tvs when the antenna wasn’t connected. That type of feeling which drives you insane after sometime,… I almost thought i was getting a migraine Too much energy perhaps? What does everyone think?

@TheMuslimWitch, I’m not sure what’s happening but if it happens again, SilverBear has a video, forgive me, I can’t remember its title, but it was like a total relaxation video, I’d watch that, then meditate for an answer.
I just got up, so my mind is fuzzy
love ya

If I’m being completely honest, I think you probably need to bring that up with your doctor, especially considering the fatigue you’ve talked about before.

I am leaning towards @MeganB suggestion, not just because of the fatigue, but also you mentioned a migraine or the beginning of one. If something with the way your migraines present themselves changes, then you should see a doctor. It may have been one starting & you slept it off. I’ve done that when I have thought one is starting.

Headaches and head pains are awful- I sometimes suffer from tension headaches and migraines and they can be really debilitating :worried: If it doesn’t go away soon (or if it comes back later), I would definitely agree with Megan and Siofra about mentioning it to your doctor, along with any other symptoms at the time.

Until then, water is your best friend- I know it sounds super cliche, but staying hydrated and getting good rest are essential for combating headaches :shield:

Relaxaing meditations are always a good idea if you ask me! :smile: @Silverbear has many wonderful videos for relaxation- this one about restful Deep Sleep came to mind, maybe that was the one you were thinking of, Garnet? :sleeping:

Meditation can definitely help to ease the pain of headaches, especially for those suffering from tension/stress headaches :+1:


Hope the static clears and you are feeling much better soon, @TheMuslimWitch! :pray::heart:

Yes thanks @MeganB and @Siofra_Strega I have been to the doctor many times, the hospital, a specialist and even have emergency medication and have an electro pulsing machine the specialist told me to buy, however as all the professionals say unless they are more than a certain amount each month there is nothing they can do and all i can do is go to emergency… Now i have done that but by the time they see me the main period they need to assess me for is gone and by then i just have the banging headache…
I tend to slept and i will freaking out and set my asthma off when i start worrying…

Thankyou and thanks for finding the video… Yes they are annoying and the hydration thing isn’t cliché trust me its just the truth. I know i am currently fasting and at the end of the day when i do eat the first thing a grab is a big cup of coffee (not the best choice should be water but hey i crave it lol), and i can feel how bad my brain needed it since my headache just fade away…

You’re very welcome, @TheMuslimWitch! :blush: And oh goodness, yes I can imagine how your body needs the fuel and drink after a day of fasting! And actually, what you said made me think of something else too- in addition to dehydration, the headaches may also be from caffeine withdrawal :coffee: It’s pretty common for someone who has a lot of caffeine daily but then suddenly stops.

Stay hydrated as much as you can! I pray you can figure out what is causing them and get the headaches to go away soon. Many blessings! :sparkling_heart:

I am really sorry this is happening to you. That must be so confusing and a little scary, especially when the doctors are not figuring it out. This may be a long shot but I wonder if your symptoms are like the ones described in this article. Oddly, strange hed sensations are associated wth anxiety. The only reason why I know that is my sister has been having what she calls brain zaps as she recovers from post-concussion syndrome. She has been to half a dozen neurologists who haven’t been able to tell her why so I’ve been researching this lately!

She gets a sensation like an electrc shock or current is going from one side of her head to the other. It’s very sudden and unexpected she says, and it happens more when she’s tired. She’s 55 and this never happened to her before her concussion, but she is also under signficant personal stress with her work and relationships.

I wonder if ashwaghanda would be helpful. Some people have used it for tinnitus and it is supposed to be great for anxiety for some people – but although it is an herbal supplement, it is one of those things you have to run by a doctor, I think, because it can interfere with some medications and conditions.

Quercetin, luteolin, resveratrol and fish oil are also good brain healing supplements.

It is interesting that you crave coffee and have asthma because some findings say caffeine helps with asthma symptoms. Maybe your body is trying to tell you something!

Thank you very much :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I also have thought of the caffine withdrawal as coffee (as much as i don’t like to admit it) is one of my main sources of drink… I have improved on water since i workoout quite a bit since i lost 45kgs, but coffee is just a bad habit (as it is usually around 3 cups a day).

thank you for the article… I have started to take my fish oil supplement along with the vitamin c, iron , vitamin d (as suggestedd bu doctor, multi-vitamin and also the hair, skin and nails vitamin (also recommneded). I have never heard of brain zaps strangely enough but am very interested to find out more. Thanks for taking the time to share this and maybe this might be what i am experiencing… Also just to add i have notice in the last few weeks i cannot sleep at night. I feel hot, my heart is racing and genuinely uncomfortable even though my pillow and bed have never been an issue. I still read too as it makes me sleepy after reading a couple of chapters of a few books…Perhaps your sister has sleeping problems too? I do think it is anxiety as well and the stress i go through. You see i go to bed at 10:30pm, read for an hour and then even though i feel i want to sleep i lie there for over an hour mind racing until i finally fall asleep…This period before i sleep after i read my book is usually when i get that fuzzy feeling since i am laying still aware of my body whereas during the day i don’t have time to stop and ‘feel’…

Yes well my asthma too has been going off which isn’t that normal. I keepp a puffer yes usually in my gym bag as i used to find it hard to breath a few months back when i was 45kgs heavier (113kg>68kgs), but my asthma and allergies set off a few nights ago randomly which woke me up after 2am and could not breath from my nose, throat was tight and i was wheezing not to mention that my eyes were watering and were red as if i didn’t sleep in months (i am allergic to dust)… Anyways i been starting to wheeze when i run on the treadmill which has come out of no where. Usually i am find no issues. Its not so bad i need tooo stop or run for the puffer but i can defiantly hear and feel it…

Speaking of anxiety & headaches, I will get fuzzy-brained & the start of migraine from a lot of stress… but it’s after the stress & situation have passed, like adrenaline let down migraine (??).

I also have a caffeine addiction to the point that I don’t get jittery, but if I don’t have it, I will get a headache, especially since December my caffeine intake has at least doubled. (I know bad coping, but it’s been quite the roller coaster over the last year or 2). Increasing water intake though should counter some of the dehydrating properties of caffeinated drinks.

Also, if your magnesium is low, it will cause headache-type feelings or sensations. I had to go to the ER & I was given magnesium then had to take it as an addition with a multivitamin for a little while until my levels were maintained with the multivitamin alone. They said my magnesium was way too low & adding to the symptoms I was having with the migraine, but it instantly started getting better after about 5 minutes of it in my IV.

I did get some blood work done not long ago and the doctor said all is good but vitamin d and iron are on the boarderline and since i have a history of being low in both he said better to take the supplements… I have heard the caffine thing where to drink more will ‘water down’ the effects however, just like you i too drink a lot of coffee as a ‘compromise’ to how stressful everything is and hw much i have to rush and get done…
I am proud of myself for one thing however, is that i didn’t go to the gym today… It may sound i should be quite the opposite however, i workout more than twice each day and my brain and body just said no, so i had to listen to it. I got to sleep in :blush: and felt nice to relax and get some study done after neglecting it for a few weeks blaming it on the fact its Ramadan for us and i am fasting…
Hope you are feeling well and things get better for you soon x
