Depends: If the tingling is temporary, and relieved by positional changes, it could be a neck, jaw, or facial nerve problem. A neurologist or physiatrist can help. If you have had head trauma or take a lot of medications, discuss this with your prescribing doctor. Sleep disorder may be the real concern.
