Ever feel like your brain is making a crackling noise


I know that sounds crazy but I don't know how else to explain it ... I feel it several times a day .... Like I have this cracking side deep inside my brain ... Its hard to describe so I'll quit while I'm ahead lol

It doesn't sound crazy. A lot of people experience it here...I call it brain fuzzies, and I have heard other people say it's like static electricity! It's like a pins and needles kind of feeling or like little tiny kernels of popcorn popping. I often feel mine more on the surface though rather than deep within. But I bet the feeling is the same!

I know what you mean!! I get it deep inside my brain. I also get a tingly feeling sweep over my brain from the back of my neck and up to my forehead. Wow, I always wondered what that was!

I get the tingly needles and pins feeling on the back of my head sometimes, I think I had that feeling during my last EEG. I use to get a crackling noise in my head but I think that was related to comming off of Paxil in the late 90's which causes Brain Zaps a phenomenon that doctors still don't know much about, which I'm kinda convinced is some form of seizure.

There is nothing more comforting in life then popping on to see if this happens to anyone else and BAM it's on the front page.

I "noticed" this for the first time last night. So happy I'm not alone with this.

As usual I <3 you guys!!!

Rest assure, I am another who experiences something similar. On occasion, I will feel like the inside of by brain is burning… it’s this constant heat or energy that can last for hours. It is usually accompanied by simple partials with then come in waves. Then the whole thing ends up in a ginormous headache. I’m guessing my neurons won’t stop firing and that’s why I feel this heat/energy, but who knows. I’m not a neurologist, I just play one on tv.
