Can sinus issues cause burning and tingling in one part of head?

Can sinus issues cause burning and tingling in one part of head?

Sinusitis: This is not a typical sinus symptom which usually consists of pain with associated nasal congestion and drainage of mucus. Neuralgia, which is an irritation/inflammation of a superficial nerve in the forehead, is more likely. It's not serious and usually resolves in a few days. See your MD if symptoms persist or worsen.

I used head and shoulders shampoo 4 days ago and right after my facial skin felt burning, tight and irritated. I apply moisturizers but still irriated?

Ans: You have had a skin reaction to the shampoo. Do not use it anymore. Try gentle lotions or perhaps even some hydrocortisone cream to the face avoiding the eyes and the mouth. The skin will repair itself brakes a few days.

I'm having strange headaches that are just on the back of my head - with burning tingling sensations on my head and face. What could it be?

It COULD be...: ...not saying it IS, but it COULD be, occipital neuralgia. This is often diagnosed and treated by neurologists but knowledge about this is not necessarily limited to neurologists. Astute and experienced PCPs can address this as well.

I've been having a burning sensation from what feels like the inside of my head. I've also been having tingling sensations that are dull. Thoughts?

I've been having a burning sensation from what feels like the inside of my head. I've also been having tingling sensations that are dull. Thoughts?

Need an examination: A symptom of "burning sensations inside my head " and tingling sensations is less likely to be due to a serious disease and more likely due to stress or anxiety. BUT it's not possible to diagnose these symptoms without knowing your medical history and without the ability to ask you specific questions and examining you. Please see a Dr. To be sure nothing serious is present, better safe than sorry.

Need more info: Sounds like it might be a form of anxiety. The symptoms are so varied it is hard to pick a neurological cause. To be 100% sure please consult with a neurologist and if his/her exam is normal talk to your family physician.

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.

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. The other possibility is mononeuritis. I would recommend to see a family doc or neurologist. Good luck.

Occipital nerve: Most likely explanation for your symptoms is irritation of occipital nerve, a strictly sensory nerve supplying the scalp in back of the head. This nerve is frequently irritated by chronic muscle spasm secondary to emotional tension and/or anatomic difficulties in the upper neck.

Shingles?: Keep an eye out for areas of redness and small blisters. If this starts to occur in the areas that you're having those sensations, you may be dealing with shingles. This can be a serious condition if it comes near your eye, so be sure to see your doctor immediately if it starts to happen. Good luck and get better soon!

Could be or allergy: If you have those symptoms as a reaction to a product it sounds more like allergy or allergic dermatitis. You may also have rosacea, which can result in flushing and facial redness especially with heat, stress or alcohol triggers. Either way you should see a dermatologist for evaluation and treatment.

I've been having a tingling sensation on the left side of my head follwed by a burning sensation on my fore head. Been worryimg about it could be a brain tumor?

I've been having a tingling sensation on the left side of my head follwed by a burning sensation on my fore head. Been worryimg about it could be a brain tumor?

Not a tumor: Your symptoms are consistent with a panic attack more than a neurological event. For your own peace of mind, go and see a neurologist, he might order a MRI to clear that diagnosis, but the main issue is you get proper evaluation And treatment.
