It sounds like symptoms of anxiety, stress can shown itself as physical symptoms and not just psychological effects, have you ruled out circulation problems ?

Yes, I'm an otherwise healthy athletic individual, hence my frustration with my current symptoms...I just want to know that these symptoms are normal and common.....the head tingling especially....

I am pretty sure it is anxiety causing your head tingling and numbness, i have experienced this first hand and medication will stop this such as Sertraline :)

Have you stopped a medication like citalopram lately as that can give you brain zaps on withdrawal.
