I have tingling on my left cheek bone, my left eye is irritating and I am getting headaches. I do have a 61% level of anxiety. I'm so scared. What should I do?

I have tingling on my left cheek bone, my left eye is irritating and I am getting headaches. I do have a 61% level of anxiety. I'm so scared. What should I do?

Anxiety: Your description sounds like you have some eye irritation from dry eye causing your headaches and pain. The left cheek tingling is likely a manifestation of your anxiety. I would try artificial tears during the day, ointment at night, warm compresses, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, see an eye doctor for further treatment.

Throbbing nerve above left eye on forehead 2days. Eye area, cheek numb/ tingling. Taking Currently Tegretol for TN?

Approach: Since you have trigeminal neuralgia, and are on Tegretal which is the classic drug for this condition, you are probably well controlled, but contact your doctor about the newer symptoms just to be safe, and consider checking drug level to make sure it is therapy range.

ATEIN: A Thorough Evaluation Is Needed. .. You should get a complete in-person evaluation by a physician. The list of possibilities is too long to properly exclude online. An ER Evaluation is NOT that evaluation -- it is just a screen to rule out what needs to be dealt with immediately. A good neurologist is fine but I would start with a comprehensive evaluation by a good Primary Care Physician
