I'm having bad sinus pain for over a week. When I bend over, I get a burning sensation up my nose to my head. What is that and how to treat?

Acute Sinusitis: Acute sinusitis is associated with facial pressure, nasals congestion, fevers, and often sore throat or cough. If your symptoms have persisted longer than a week, or have gotten worse after you seemed to be improving you may need to be treated with antibiotics. Otherwise, I recommend Mucinex (guaifenesin) 1200mg 2x daily with a large glass of water. A tablespoon of honey works excellent for cough. ...Read more

In bed, turned head & got a burning sensation from outer ear to throat. Soapy taste in mouth. Itchy ear & burning feeling in throat. What is this?

Go to emergency room: If the symptoms are all on one side of your head/neck, ask them to evaluate you for a carotid dissection. It's an injury to a blood vessel in the neck that can cause the symptoms you describe. They'll do imaging of the blood vessels. If they find a carotid dissection, they'll start a medicine to thin your blood while the injury heals. If you have any questions, I'm available for a virtual consult. ...Read more

I have weakness to my 6th nerve muscle and the past week I've had burning sensation on top and back of head. Can this be related?

May or may not: Main issue is the cause of your Abducens palsy, and if you have inflammatory disorder of meninges due to any cause, the burning could be associated due to involvement of trigeminal or greater occipital nerves. If your N VI issue is congenital or post-traumatic, then there is NO relationship. ...Read more

I have been having burning sensation in my head it doesn't stay I'm the same spot my ears have had a burning sensation too and sometimes pain?

The nerves in the...: Head and face are intricately wired & densely packed. The brain can get confused about where a sensation is coming from. Pain, burning, throbbing and other unpleasant sensations that recur are signs that a sensory nerve may be irritated or inflamed. Just because it's confined to your head doesn't mean it's "all in your head". Please see a doctor! ...Read more

What causes upper back pain and very burning sensation that stretches along shoulders and back of my head? Could it be fibromyalgia? Could not bear hot

What causes upper back pain and very burning sensation that stretches along shoulders and back of my head? Could it be fibromyalgia? Could not bear hot

Probably not: Fibromyalgia affects both right and left sides of the body, above and below the waist. There are several things that might cause your symptoms-e.g.-trigger points (painful bands inside the muscle), facet joint arthritis of the lower neck or upper back (especially if you were in an accident with a whiplash injury), disc tears, and subluxation of the joints between the rib and vertebrae. ...Read more

Inactive myelination: Thank you for your interesting question. So MS was excluded, but there are 30 inactive myelinations? Perhaps these were caused by smoking, an injury, or?

The symptom you mentioned- numbness and burning on top of the head- is not one that suggests MS either. If you are otherwise feeling well, treat symtomatically (try ice?) If it continues to bother you, it may be time for another check up. ...Read more

I have burning sensation in my head and face. My adrenaline seems off, too, and I'm overstimulated. Too much saliva. Diagnosis?

No fun: Usually burning sensations are not good, and among the list of things that cause more saliva are infection, poisoning, palsy, std, etc. In some cases extra saliva is transient and not associated with anything bad. My first inclination is that you have an allergist or neurologist check out your sensations for definitive diagnosis. I certainly hope you find out soon then repost so we can learn. ...Read more

Small tingling/burning sensation like someone is drilling into my head on the left rear side of my head? It doesn't hurt but it is annoying.

How long have you: Been experiencing such symptoms? Have you seen any rash. It looks like some kind of nerve irritation. Herpes zoster is one but you need to have dermatome skin lesion.
