Temple pressure both sides, and tingly feeling on forehead that comes and goes after I itch it? I do have anxiety. Related?

Temple pressure both sides, and tingly feeling on forehead that comes and goes after I itch it? I do have anxiety. Related?

Possibly. Anxiety: triggers physiological changes that can affect any muscle, vascular or nerve groups. Your sx's are a bit atypical, so I'd start with a visit to your MD to r/o skin allergies, migraines, strange side effects from meds or food, etc. If you eliminate all the physical possibilities, then see a mental health pro.

For days I have had temple pressure, twitching and numbness on top of my head right side that numbs my face. What is wrong? How can I make it stop?

For days I have had temple pressure, twitching and numbness on top of my head right side that numbs my face.  What is wrong?  How can I make it stop?

Could be your jaw: To move the jaw joint you have huge muscles on the side of your head that often times can become irritated and inflamed. When irritated they can cause inflammation of nerves leading to numbness as well as pressure and pain. I recommend that you try a completely soft diet, anti-inflammatories as well as ice to the side of your head for 20 minutes four times a day. This should give you relief within a few days, if not you need to see a doctor. ...Read more

Have had left temple pressure feeling for about a week. On temple area & side of eye. Feels pressure, pulling - almost like someone pressing on it. If I widen my eyes it almost feels tight. seems worse as day goes. I do have anxiety. Any ideas?

Clenching: Although, not all temple pressure is caused by stress and clenching of your teeth, it is a common cause. Anxiety will also accentuate the tension and often lead to clenching of your jaw.

Try to take two warm moist wash cloths and place on on both the right and left temples at the same time. Leave it on, dipping the cloth in warm water if it cools, for 15-20 minutes and repeat this every hour. ...Read more

I've had ear pain and left temple pressure for a month....does this seem serious? The pressure is right about my jaw joint and is intense andthrobbing

Ear pain: It sounds like TMJ (temporal mandibular joint syndrome) and isn't serious if that's the case. Stress can provoke it. An ENT or dentist can help diagnose and I would suggest you go since it has been going on for so ling. ...Read more

I have pressure in my left temple, pressure behind my eye, pain in my left ear, tired and fuzzy. Blood test normal, go can't find anything, what wrong?

You need to...: ... keep gong back and working with your doctor until you have an answer. The most worrisome thing is that you have multiple symptoms that are localized to the same area: the left side of your head. In my opinion, MR imaging should be done. Excluding some type of growth or blood vessel problem in this part of your head is important. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Cold feeling in temple with pressure and a throb?

Can be serious: Abnormal feeling around the temple can be many different things--can be a temporary sensation or can be a sign that your body is trying to tell you to have your head, neck and jaw joints as something dangerous is happening.

Random pain in my temples an pressures in the sides of my face in my neck an under my right side of my jaw does this has some to do with sinus help?

TMJ: This probably is not sinus issues but temporal mandibular pain from the joint. Take Motrin 600 to 800 mg three times a day. Use warm compresses and eat a soft diet: mush the consistency of yogurt until the pain stops. Stop chewing gum or eating hard foods like bread and meat that require a lot of chewing. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more

Is there a connection - left frozen shoulder, right hand dupuytren, left temple tingling & pressure, persistent liquid cough with grey phglem?

Is there a connection - left frozen shoulder, right hand dupuytren, left temple tingling & pressure, persistent liquid cough with grey phglem?

Only between two: Frozen shoulder and dupuytren's disease are both fibroproliferative disorders. The exact cause of both is still not fully understood, but it is thought that if you have one of the conditions, you may be more likely to have the other (as well as nodules on the feet - lederhose's disease, or curvature of the penis - peyronies's disease). ...Read more
