Get Checked!: Don't wait, please get checked. You are too young for a heart attack, although the symptoms suggest something like that. I suspect your TMJ Temporomandibular Joint. See you physician or dentist pronto!

Neurological: There are a variety of nerves running along the sides of your head/face. Any burning, cold, tingling, painful jolt, or crawling sensation could be the result of improper stimulation of these nerves = parasthesia. If this is a recurring sensation or you have strange sensations in multiple areas, it might be time to see a neurologist. They can do nerve testing and determine the underlying cause.
