Relax: At 20 years old you are starting to notice bodily functions you have ignored in the past. Also you have probably forgotten or not experienced true severe pain or illness. A good rule of thumb : If you have to wonder if something hurts or not then it doesn't hurt. Likewise if a sensation or self examination isn't unpleasant and there's nothing new (like a lump or skin lesion) then you're ok! ...Read more

Keep a diary: Do you also experience hearing or visual changes, or sensory or movement changes in your extremities? If so, then you need an in-person checkup. But probably you don't, & are likely OK. So I would recommend keeping a diary for 1-2 weeks at least, noting timing, nature & associated features whenever these symptoms occur. Get help if still problematic. Hope that helps. ...Read more

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.
