See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md. See an md, because some seizure disorders are life-threatening if not controlled. A neurologist would be best suited for this. ...Read more

Mild pain on side of neck, head, eye twitching, its on and off and feel it in my shoulder. My other muscles were randomly twitching to. I have hypothyroid.

Best to see doctor: The upper cervical nerves form the stellate ganglion which can go rostrad to the head for innervation. The lower ones do control the neck and shoulder muscles. It is difficult to just say that the problem is that. It is best to have it evaluated especially in view of the eye twitching. ...Read more

An MRI of the brain will ensure that there is not a structural reason for the twitching. See a neurologist or neurosurgeon to make the diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. ...Read more

A bump on my left side neck above collarbone when felt, not swollen. Off & on sharp pain in left ear. Itchy eyes & skin. Muscle pain+twitches, what is it?

Lump on neck: The lump on your neck can be a number of things but could be a swollen lymph node. Did you have any viral illnesses recently or come in contact with a cat that might have scratched you?

My ear has been clogged for months now. I have chronic allergies, and every time I tilt my head to the right, my left ear clicks. I need the mucus out?

My ear has been clogged for months now. I have chronic allergies, and every time I tilt my head to the right, my left ear clicks. I need the mucus out?

ETD - see doc: The sensation of ears clogging, clicking and popping usually mean the eustachian tubes are not working well. Normally they equalize pressure in the middle ear and prevent fluid from accumulating. Swelling from infection (virus) or allergy can prevent normal function. Warning: this can last for weeks/months. Valsalva maneuver (blowing while pinching nose), sudafed, nasal sprays + prednisone help. ...Read more

I had an ENG test done because I have been having a clogged feeling in my left ear. Also I have had pressure in my head and tired. What could it be?

Eustachian tube: Sounds like fluid build up behind eardrum. Otherwise known as Eustachian tube dysfunction. Sometimes chewing gum, yawning, decongestants, anti histamines and nasal steroid sprays are used to help. The ENG has more to do with balance issues, think your MD was thinking about something called Ménière's disease. ...Read more

Clogged right ear, now right eye is twitching are these related?

Clogged right ear, now right eye is twitching are these related?

Highly unlikely: Both areas are controlled by completely separate cranial nerves and innovations. I cannot see either the anatomic or physiological connection between those two things. Unless of course, one considers stress and anxiety reactions from the clogged ear as perhaps precipitating some type of nervous reaction which then could result in some minor eye twitching. But that is a stretch. ...Read more

What could cause temple and eye twitching also I have a white spot that came up on my left eyelid?

Stress, maybe: Temple & eye twitching, if sparing other facial muscles, is usually seen in stressful situations, caffeine/stimulant use, fatigue, eye strain. Partial seizures or certain disorders of facial nerves could be present. White spots on eyelids are probably unrelated. Do you have red spots/blisters (shingles)?, headaches?, loss of balance?
