I'm feeling extremely tired despite getting 8 hrs sleep a night, falling asleep during day. Episodes of numbness over top of head on left hand side.?

Quantity vs Quality: While you're describing an adequate quantity of sleep, you may be suffering from poor quality sleep, for instance, sleep apnea, which can lead to inappropriate sleeping during the day. Numbness is more worrisome and needs to be evaluated by your Family Doc. If it happens again (especially w/loss of strength), call 911 & get thee to an ER to evaluate for possible stroke (remember FAST). ...Read more

I sleep with my left hand tucked under my head. My hand goes numb during the night. If I keep it at my side it does not. It also goes numb when I am holding a phone to my ear. Also, I have three trigger fingers when I wake in the morning. That stops late

Nerve compression: These symptoms sound a lot like typical carpal tunnel syndrome which often occurs at night and with certain activity like holding a phone or driving. An evaluation from a hand surgeon can easily determine if this is suspected and confirm with ultrasound or nerve studies. A high percentage of patients have trigger finger as well if they have carpal tunnel syndrome. ...Read more

My neck was injured 2 years ago. My numbness and headaches are worse now. What should I do? Is this serious? I have headaches that last 4 to 5 days, numbness in my hand, forearm and upper arm. My right ear swells up and I have a persistent shrill ringing

My neck was injured 2 years ago. My numbness and headaches are worse now. What should I do? Is this serious? I have headaches that last 4 to 5 days, numbness in my hand, forearm and upper arm. My right ear swells up and I have a persistent shrill ringing

If: If these symptoms have been on and off since your injury then we can possibly attribute your symptoms to the neck injury. You may be dealing with a compression or herniation in your spine and/ or arthritis in your spine, obviously in the area that was previously injured. You need to follow up with your primary care provider or orthopedist. If x-rays have not been done recently, then after a thorough exam these should be ordered followed possibly by an mri. In the meantime your doctor can prescribe you anti-inflammatory medications as well as meds directed at nerve pain. Lastly a complete history and physical are in order if one has not been done in the past year or so.
All the best. ...Read more

Left ear numbness and headache, sometimes vertigo?

ENT eval: This combo of symptoms requires a careful clinic assessment by ENT exam and an audiogram (hearing test), then an MRI per judgement of the ENT. Vertigo and headache are common, ear numbness is rare, but like much more common ear pain can be the result of a problem involving one of several cranial and cervical nerves. Your ear numbness is most worrisome symptom. ...Read more

Feeling of ear fullness in left ear and numbness near ear. Any suggestions?

Feeling of ear fullness in left ear and numbness near ear. Any suggestions?

That's a need for MD: Best solution would be to have this examined by a professional (family doctor), and throat cultured and assessed. Upper respiratory tract infections may well be due to virus, bacteria, etc. You might try using a netti-pot or nasal saline spray along with a decongestant and nsaid. This sounds like it may be due to sinus disease, in which case the above might well help. ...Read more

My left ear keeps going numb for a second. Sometimes when it happens my cheek goes numb too. Noticed physical activity takes the numbness away. Why?

My left ear keeps going numb for a second. Sometimes when it happens my cheek goes numb too. Noticed physical activity takes the numbness away. Why?

Doctor can evaluate: Numbness of an ear usually means the skin sensation of the earlobe and cheek have decreased. An ENT doctor or a neurologist can evaluate to see if something is bothering the sensory nerve to those areas on the head. Not sure why physical activity changes things, but activity does change blood flow. Of course, there are hundreds of types of physical activity, so the doctor will ask for details. ...Read more

Okay so last week I had a fullness feeling started in my left ear...now its still full but accompanied by a bit of numbness in jaw and temple area?

Hard to say: There are other considerations within the ear like the middle ear or the inner ear. Also the ear is very close to the brain we want to make sure that something there is not causing the symptoms. You should discuss this with your physician and see a neurologist or even also an ENT physician to help clarify what is involved ...Read more

For few days I can't hear from left ear. Have numbness around mouth pain around neck and pain around ear. I was taking omnicef (cefdinir) but feared this is re?

Need more info!: Why taking omnicef (cefdinir)? If it's for a head/neck infection, the pain and trouble hearing could be related to the infection. Where exactly is the "pain in the neck"? It doesn't sound like a side effect from omnicef (cefdinir), but an infection may have extended someplace. If you don't have a fever, it could be because the infection is partially treated - Omnicef (cefdinir) = good antibiotic. See a doctor! Update me. ...Read more
