Pins And Needles On My Forehead

Injection or absorbtion of local anesthetic, depending on volume and concentration, can cause near immediate loss of consciousness. It is an unusual complication and unlikely to be repeated. Very scary, though. Glad you're okay.

What could cause intermittent numbness (not pins and needles but rather funny/odd feeling) in a demarcated area of left side of forehead?
Could there be any connection between vagus nerve damage and burning/pins and needles feeling in face (around mouth and nose/lower forehead area)?

Hi, I've recently been having a fear of going sick, and now I'm Having pins and needles on the left side of my head, what is this? I also have asthma
I woke up this morning with pins and needles on the left side of my head/scalp like the feeling when your foot is sleeping and you can't feel it. What can it be? The feeling came back slowly when I moved my neck.
The occipital nerve comes out of the upper part of the spine. You may have slept with your neck twisted, or maybe you had an old neck injury? If you put pressure on the upper nerve roots you can get a 'sleeping nerve' feeling in your scalp.
If it doesn't come back, don't worry about it. If it persists, do some gentle neck rang of motion exercises if you know how, or get a PT referral. ...Read more
