On my left temple atleast twice a day I get a sharpe pain that I cannot bare for like 5seconds...and my left eye is now twitching everyday?
Temple: Likely a tension headache. Do you have any symptoms on the other side at all? I would consider temporal arteritis, but it is usually a disorder of older people. The twitching would also make me think of some type of elctrolyte, calcium or magnesium disorder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a numbness like falling asleep senstation on right side of head comes and goes for a month and a weird twitching on left temple. Stress?
Unclear: Since you are being treated for a sinus infection situation is more complex. Pay attention to what part of right head goes numb. Nerves to anterior skull are different from nerves to posterior skull. The fact that you are young and symptoms are on opposite sides of head makes possibility of concerning illness less. Stress can cause non-specific, wierd symptoms; but caution when infection. ...Read more

I have sharp one minute pains around the left temple multiples times a day and smell roses randomly. Should I seek help? The pain is intense but only lasts a short while, but it happens often. When it does my left eye sometimes twitches. I don't know if
Based on your description, you should seek the advice of a neurologist. The reasoning is that the symptoms you describe could be related to partial complex seizures. If so, the smell of roses can be an aura although they are more commonly unpleasant smells such as blood, garbage...
Other auras that you may want to note for the neurologist would include:
depersonalization (feeling like you are not a part of yourself)
autoscopy (feeling like you are outside your body looking in)
epigastric rising (feeling like your stomach is rising up in your chest)
hot or cold sensation running up or down your body
dizziness or vertigo
whiule pain can be associated with seizures, of course it would be more common in migraine. Your eye twitching can be related but is more commonly due to stress, caffeine...
Good luck and well wishes. ...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? Trouble chewing? Hearing? Double vision? ...Read more

Muscle irritability: At the very least, muscle spasms. Mostly due to the benign cause such as new or over use of muscle groups, too little sleep, dehydration, or too much caffeine.
