Depends: You did not say where the numbness ; tingling are. If worsening, spreading (arms, hands), or you have weakness (arms, hands), or trouble walking, go to your doctor, who can ask you more questions and examine you. If symptoms mild, you can wait and see if they get better on their own.

What can cause transient numbness in one ear canal?

What can cause transient numbness in one ear canal?

Too Ear-ly To Know: The sensory innervation of the ear canal is complex, so it's very unlikely that a nerve problem is causing your numbness.Also the fact that your symptom is"transient" is unusual. And it would be helpful to know if your numbness is a complete loss of feeling or some variant of that (tingling, decreased sensation, etc). Someone needs to look in there to see if something is stuck in there, or whatever

Have scalp dermatitis in ear; outer ear canal transient numbness/"sensations"1-2 x/day/1-2 minTreatment?

Ear dermatitis /numb: Is it just dermatitis (eczema) or psoriasis? and though not the usual rash make sure with numbness it is not lyme disease. Sometimes get scalp dermatitis from food allergies, so may do elimination diet off dairy x 14 days then off gluten x 14 and see if a difference. Would follow up with dermatologist

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. However, just reading some of the description makes me wonder if you are a combat veteran or if you have had a head injury. Post traumatic stress can present with becoming easily startled (increased startle reflex) especially with loud and unexpected noises. Jumpiness can come from being in a frequent fight or flight state (ready to jump into action to protect oneself). This is from dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. Upset stomach can also be caused by this. Feeling emotionally numb with detachment from loved ones is common. There can be difficulty falling asleep due to painful ruminations and memories of traumatic events. If someone has nightmares they might be afraid to fall asleep. Additionally, if someone has been in a combat environment, the enemy often strikes at night, so the brain gets used to sleeping lightly or sleeping little. There can be awakening from nightmares (even if they aren't recalled). Often with either a traumatic brain injury or with post traumatic stress disorder, there are sleep disturbances which can include restless leg syndrome. Restless legs can make it very difficult to fall asleep. Ringing in the ears (tinnitus) occurs frequently after traumatic brain injuries. The lack of ambition can result from depression or because a person develops a foreshortened sense of the future (ie. I will never be happy again. My career will fail. Etc.) loss of touch with reality is dissassociation. It is a defense mechanism used by the brain to take you away from something that is very emotionally upsetting. It can be quite dangerous. For instance, if you are driving a car and are dissassociated - you are not able to pay attention to the road. Depression can also leach all the joy from life. Strip you of energy and motivation. I am most concerned by your suicidal thoughts. Your symptoms are treatable. Your quality of life can improve. Please don't give up hope. If you have a suicidal plan and an urge to act on it, you need to get emergecy help. Think of how devastated your children would be without you. As I said earlier, I can't diagnose you. But I do recommend that you obtain a psychiatric evaluation. Symptoms of possible depression, post traumatic stress and possible head trauma can be explored. You had the courage to write in and ask about this. The next step is to muster your courage to be evaluated. Your life can be better. Take care. God bless.

Can tickling in ear canal be caused by allergens?

Can tickling in ear canal be caused by allergens?

Usually not.: As you might imagine, the ear canal is somewhat protected from exposure. You are much more likely to have signs and symptoms of allergy in other locations first. Usually this is due to ear wax or retained water with maceration of the skin or by a skin disease such as seborrheic dermatitis.

I've had a numbness and tingling on the left side of my face and head and every once in a while I get a cold sensation on the same side?

Several reasons: Your symptoms suggest possible bells palsy presentations which is temporary to something more ominous like a a small stroke, multiple sclerosis, or a brain mass. You should see your primary care doc right away for the proper evaluation, and if he /she is uncomfortable, they will refer you to a neurologist.

Physical therapy: Possibly is TMJ disorder. Acupuncture, biofeedback, and evaluation by a TMJ expert might be in order. Another concern would be bell's palsy. Might you be describing a facial paralysis as a "lock"? The "numbness" to touch indicates nerve contusion and/or impingement, as is seen with bell's palsy. Bell's palsy should be evaluated sooner than later. You are advised to consult a neurologist.

The: The primary symptoms of multiple sclerosis are caused by inflammation in the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). This inflammation usually causes damage to the outer, insulating part of nerve fibers called myelin, and can sometimes damage the fiber (or "axon") too. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis overlap with a number of other neurological, medical and psychiatric conditions. Multiple sclerosis can cause a number of symptoms, including vision loss, incoordination, weakness, and numbness, just to name a few. Usually these symptoms do not occur all at once, but affect different functions of different parts of the body at different times.

Nondiagnostic: Your symptoms are nondiagnostic and possibly unexplainable by a single disorder. More information is needed. Contact your Physician who will take a thorough history and perform a complete physical examination in order to make a diagnosis. Appropriate tests and probably xrays will be ordered.

What are the symptoms of having a herniated disk in the lower back? I have numbness and tingling in the lower back when sitting?

What are the symptoms of having a herniated disk in the lower back? I have numbness and tingling in the lower back when sitting?

Many symptoms...: While this could be a sign of a herniated disc, it sounds a little more like facet arthritis as it does not radiate to different areas and does not have a constant dull ache. That being said, a physical exam and imaging would be necessary to be sure. If you are concerned about an actual herniation, then I would recommend seeing a physician for an exam to be safe.
