Small bump inside skin forehead left side. tingling left side face, eye hurts, slight pressure on forehead, itchy scalp left side, swelling left brow?

EyeThinkYouNeedADoc: Putting that all together, except the itchy scalp, I'd suggest you get yourself checked for inflammation of a small artery on that side (near the temple). That could be signalling a deeper problem that could affect your eyesight (your eye is already hurting, right?). I may be wrong and I hope I am. But get to your doctor tomorrow for an exam and maybe a blood test or two. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more

Bite on left temple, swollen from forehead to cheek, redness moving towards neck,pain?

Bite on left temple, swollen from forehead to cheek, redness moving towards neck,pain?

Uh oh!: If the bite is now spreading and the swelling has increased, if taking Benadryl (diphenhydramine) doesn't help significantly, you may have an infection in the skin, called cellulitis. This is very serious when it's in the head, face or neck. It it responds to the Benadryl (diphenhydramine), it is likely just a local reaction to the bite and is not as big a deal. If it doesn't, call your doc right away, or go to an ER. Generic is OK ...Read more

Often right eyebrow higher than left, more when stressed, cheek tingling, uneven face expression, MRI CT ok but right impacted wisdom tooth, connected with tense feeling, twitching around right eye?

Tension: Tension and irritability of facial muscles and/or nerves are probably present. Twitching of the eyelid is common. Avoid caffeine and minimize stress. See a neurologist if symptoms persist or worsen. I don't think that an impacted wisdom tooth would be the cause of all these symptoms. ...Read more

Protruding jaw bone, perhaps?

Protruding jaw bone, perhaps?

Consultation: You should have a detailed clinical examination with the appropriate studies to determine if your protruding jaw is strictly a cosmetic problem and/or a functional problem. Many patients with a protruding jaw also have a malocclusion (bite) problem and cannot chew correctly. If a malocclusion is present, a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic (jaw) surgery may be indicated for correction. ...Read more

Spasms: The symptoms that you're describing are benign. Twitches and spasms and even tingling are normal and can occur on the face and neck. Oftentimes they are due to stress or can be induced by exercise. I would recommend some massaging and warm compresses, Otherwise it's not anything dangerous. ...Read more

Could I have vertebral artery dissection? I have pulsating ears jaws cheeks bridge of nose between eyes, head rush w/ bend over whooshing in ears

Could I have vertebral artery dissection? I have pulsating ears jaws cheeks bridge of nose between eyes, head rush w/ bend over whooshing in ears

Unlikely: Most people with dissection of their vertebral have no symptoms because they receive circulation from their 2 carotids and other vertebral - all of which is connected in the circle of willis. Nonetheless, you should be checked for other issues like aneurysms, very severe hypertension, or simple things like a plugged eustachian tube and otitis media. ...Read more
