What causes tingling down on the face?

Nerve: This sensation comes from a peripheral facial sensory nerve which could simply be irritable or it could be due to a brain lesion. If it persists, consult a neurologist. The former is usually not serious but the latter is.

A female asked:

Can florinef (fludrocortisone) cause tingling in the face?

Not likely: I don't think that this would be a side effect of florinef (fludrocortisone) which causes some sodium retention and is often prescribed to treat postural hypotension. An irritable superficial facial nerve is a more likely cause. If symptoms persist or if other neurologic type symptoms develop, consult a neurologist for evaluation and advice.

No: High sodium levels in blood may indicate dehydration but do not cause tingling anywhere.
