Question A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

Every morning I get this weird fuzzy sensation in my brain, sort of like that feeling when your arm or leg falls asleep.

I don't know what it is, but it's annoying. I'm not on any medication and I've never been on antidepressants.

Has anyone else experienced this feeling?

Yep!

I don't just encounter it in the morning though, I generally experience it round about mid day as well.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that experiences this. Do you take antidepressants?
I'm hoping this sensation will go away if I get prescribed adhd medication later on this week.

Re: A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

I get it.

I used to have it all the time. Most times of the day, it would be there for me, making my days harder and harder.

Now that I'm on medication, it only happens when my meds have run out, and it is much noisier than before the meds. It's usually my reminder to take them

However, that's something you need to discuss with your doctor as to whether medication is the best approach for your needs

Re: A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

I get this dull numb feeling on the back of my head. It's like a big chunk of brain has been cut out.

It actually does feel like when my arm goes to sleep.

I just take ADHD medication (Ritalin) but it happens on the days I don't take it as well.

Re: A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

I don't get any sensations, really. No fuzzy tingling or anything, just a fog. I also just feel heavy, like I am cemented to the furniture. I feel like there's an engine up there, and the spark plugs are bad. They just won't fire!

Re: A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

Sometimes i get this feeling of fuzzyness/paranoia/anxiety/somethings bad sensation coming from the top centre of my brain... It also does feel like someone cut out a piece of my brain also when i feel this sensation... It doesnt hurt but its a mentally painful feeling... When i was a kid i used to get dreams of standing on the surface and looking in all directions to a flat endless horizon and this feeling would just pulsate in my head... I would wake up feeling like i just had a nightmare... Sometimes it comes and goes when im laying down reading a book, or just thinking or sometimes it will come mildly when i smoke a little bit of weed. Ive always wondered about it...

Re: A Fuzzy Sensation in the Brain every Morning.

I get that every afternoon around 1pm. It has become so bad lately that I have to sleep otherwise I just can't function.
