Can ct head/orbit cause : lightheaded dizzy w/ brief low rumble noise, headache w/ tingling forehead? Dr said maybe anxiety, but no hx panic. Attacks

No, a CT cannot: CAUSE these symptoms. In fact, a CT may HELP DIAGNOSE reasons for dizziness and headache, such as sinusitis. Your doctor is correct that anxiety can cause dizziness and tingling, even without "panic attacks". If you have your CT on a disc, I can explain it to you on HealthTap Concierge healthtap.

Can C5-C6, mild left-paracentral broad-based disc bulge & C6-C7, mild broad-based disc bulge cause arm & wrist pain? Tingling scalp & forehead? Help!

Can C5-C6, mild left-paracentral broad-based disc bulge & C6-C7, mild broad-based disc bulge cause arm & wrist pain? Tingling scalp & forehead? Help!

Yes to arm issues: You do describe abnormalities in the neck that could cause pain and numbness of the arm/hand. However, if you are having specific joint pain that that is most likely not caused by the neck problems. Your scalp and forehead symptoms are most not likely caused by the neck problems and you need to discuss this with a medical provider. You may require a CT or MRI of the head to be complete. Good luck

What can cause tingling on my nose and sometimes on my forehead? No pain, it's just an annoying tingle that comes and goes.

Paresthesia: Tingling sensation can be related to hypocalcemia, multiple sclerosis, anxiety or other medical conditions! Agree with dr. Melder you'll need to see your primary care doctor to start the work up.

Does occipital neuralgia cause tingling over one half of scalp and sore spots on scalp? Hurts to move hair. Also tingly numb feeling forehead n cheek

Does occipital neuralgia cause tingling over one half of scalp and sore spots on scalp? Hurts to move hair. Also tingly numb feeling forehead n cheek

Cutaneous allodynia: Cutaneous allodynia is the scalp tenderness and pain with hair movement that can happen when a migraine has gone on for a while until there is "central sensitization." The numbness in forehead and cheek doesn't sound like occipital neuralgia. Hemicrania continua is also a possibility, but less likely. I'm available for consult if you'd like to discuss further. Hope that helps!

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.

Might a pinched nerve in your neck cause shooting pains when you turn your head and cause tingling?

Dr. Roy G. Spurling: When you turn your head to one side & experience tingling and shooting pain (radiculopathy) in your arm, upper back or shoulder region on the same side your neck was turned to, it may be indicative of a pinched nerve (foraminal stenosis; nerve root impingement. Modification of this maneuver performed by the doctor is called spurling's maneuver or sign, named after the neurosurgeon who named it.

I have a tingling crawling sensation inside my head around the temple. What could cause this?

TMD?: 26 y female has "tingly crawling sensation" around temple; apparently one-sided. Paresthesias caused by chronic muscle spasm might be etiologic. Chronic muscle spasm is a signature symptom of Temporomandibular Joint disorder, wherein the ipsilateral Masseter muscle is chronically spastic. See comments:
