Don't worry, and enjoy your head of hair, no matter how it grows. ...Read more

I doubt if you had one episode, you should worry at all. If you start vomiting and are unable to have a bowel movement, go to the ER ...Read more

Nerve: The most likely cause was an irritable superficial nerve in your face. This is more of a nuisance and tends to resolve quickly.
