My husband just said he has a burning sensation on his forehead? What could this be?

More info needed: We can't be sure without more information and an examination, but if the burning is on one side of the forehead only, it could be related to the onset of shingles (herpes zoster) before the rash is apparent. Shingles in that area could affect the eye, so see a doctor right away.

I have a random burning sensation on my forehead and random pains in my left ear that hurts.

Could be nerve irrit: Intermittent in in the area of the ear could be due to a problem with the temporomandibular joint. This may also be due to infection. It would be best to consult with your otolaryngologist for an examination, exact diagnosis and proper treatment.

My wide has had stomach ache, diarrhea, soft stools, and a burning sensation on her forehead on and off for two weeks.  what could this be?

See a Dr. GI or PCP: These are nonspecific no diagnostic symptoms. If there is a change in bowel movement to diarrhea maybe an acute gastroenterologist is by virus, toxins from bacteria, toxin from antibiotic use (c. Difficile toxin). Burning on forehead maybe because of fever orvasodilator on.2 weeks is too long to wait for acute diarrhea to disappear. Needs workup with stool tests, lab tests, keep good hydration.

Experiencing a burning sensation with my headache mostly around forehead. Feel fine otherwise except noticeably fatigued. Any ideas?

Experiencing a burning sensation with my headache mostly around forehead. Feel fine otherwise except noticeably fatigued. Any ideas?

Go see your DR: Common causes of headache are migraine/ spasm of blood vessels in the scalp and tension/muscular strain. Sinus headache has associated colds/congestion and pain on pressing the forehead and cheeks. Fatigue could be from many causes including lingering infection, lack of sleep, stress, thyroid condition etc. Have yourself examined by your dr. God bless you!

Got to ER or Urgent: Care and get an x-ray done asap. Head trauma can lead to all sorts of problems that can cause issues later on that you may not be aware of. You could easily have a fracture or other trauma and should be seen by a doctor for evaluation. Often symptoms may not appear for another 24-72 hours that are important to evaluate at the onset. So don't delay. Also, have your neck and back evaluated too.

After havin pain in forehead, behind eyes& heaviness &burning sensation in head for 2weeks, CT shows acute sinusitis. I took zinoximor but still pain?

May take time: It may take some time for the sinusitis to clear. Thus you may have the pain for awhile. Sometimes, if the antibiotics are not sufficient, it may be necessary to see an ENT specialist who may be able to drain out some of the mucus via endoscopy. This may help to decrease the sinusitis and make the antibiotics more effect.

Mild forehead ache for a month and now burning sensation in right forearm for a week. Ct scan done in late december last year came back normal. Ideas?

Headache: Hard to say. Clearly your doctor has evaluated you and was perhaps concerned about a cervical disc problem, thus the ct scan. Burning in arm can be a peripheral nerve problem. Headache perhaps tension? Sinus related? Blood work done perhaps to include a lyme test.

Why do I get a burning sensation in my neck and in my back of my head?

Why do I get a burning sensation in my neck and in my back of my head?

Possible nerve: Irritation. While it could be just muscle spasms or irritation, the fact that it burns leading up to the back of your head, it may be nerve irritation, often including the greater occipital, lesser and third occipital nerves. You will need a physical exam to be sure, but try neck range of motion exercises, gently, until you see a doc. Safe exercises can be found at www. Spine-health. Com.

Please answer! What makes glucophage (metformin) cause a burning sensation inside my head?

One of two things?: Burning in the head is uncommon with metformin. One possibility is acidosis and the other is hypogycemia. Check your blood sugar if it occurs again. You need to tell the doctor who prescribed the metformin that you are having this problem.

I'm having a burning sensation on the back if my head for 4 days straight now mix with pain and now I feel nauseous?

See your doctor: I don't know your health history, how long you have had the headache and when the nausea began. I would recommend you get examined by your health provider, since the nausea may be an important new development.
