Headaches. Earaches. Ringing in ears. Mostly on right side of head and right ear. Any other symptoms to look out for? Should I see my gp?

Yes.: Ringing in the ear (tinnitus) is common and there are many causes. Unilateral tinnitus always needs to be evaluated more carefully. Most gp's can help to find out what the cause is. Sometimes you may need to see an otolaryngologist (ENT) and sometimes people need to have an mri. Start with a good history and exam with your physician and take it from there. Good luck!

Tingling behind right ear in an approximately one inch wide & four inch long area?

Tingling behind right ear in an approximately one inch wide & four inch long area?

Pain?: Hard to nail down the cause with limited information, but one thought is early shingles. If there is (or soon is) a rash in the area and if the skin is tender or painful to touch, this is something to consider. If its getting worse, i'd see the doc. Good luck.

The very top of my right ear has been tingling on and off throughout the day for the past two days. What could be causing this?

Let someone look: It could be some skin inflammation, such as dermatitis or a bug bite. Let someone see if there is redness or swelling. I think it is likely a not serious problem

Tingling sensation in right ear happens all day long off and on. It doesn't itch just a tingling almost water feeling but I know there's no water?

Ear: These symptoms can be secondary to irritation to canal, fluid in drum or a process to the sensory nerves or balance gland. I see you are on a antibiotic already. If this is going on for some time likely need to get checked.

I am feeling stretch round the right neck, right side of fore head since two months. It goes sometimes but comes back. Tingling ii head near right ear.?

Need evaluation: this could be due to the muscles around the neck and perhaps comes from a neck problem. You need to see your physician and clarify that or was there something else that may be having the same symptoms. Pinching a nerve could've also cause some of these symptoms that's what needs to be evaluated

I have been having tingling on left side of face and right ear been hurting no headaches what could this be its about 3 weeks now?

See md: After all medical factors have been ruled out and you are still suffering go to your dentist for an evaluation. It could be related to your jaw shifting to your right side which would cause war pain on right and temple pain on left.

Experiencing about one week of tingling on the top of and behind my right ear in an arc about one inch wide & four inches long. Ideas?

Experiencing about one week of tingling on the top of and behind my right ear in an arc about one inch wide & four inches long. Ideas?

Possib pinched nerve: Most likely nerve to the skin of that area which comes out of upper 2 or 3 cervical vertebral bones is being pinched or compressed. Osteo arthritis is the common cause but you need MRI of neck to rule out any other cause of pressure on the nerve.

I have been having tingling and numbness on my head above my right ear also get migraines everyday, should I be worried?

I have been having tingling and numbness on my head above my right ear also get migraines everyday, should I be worried?

Is this new?: If the tingling & numbness are on the same side as the pain, the symptoms are likely part of your migraine syndrome. Have you been diagnosed with migraines or did you just diagnose yourself? Do you have headaches "every day, " or do you have "everyday" headaches & also a less frequent kind of headache? (Bad spelling can ruin your health, you know.)

Experiencing a Tingling Numbness on outside of right ear while sleeping?

Experiencing a Tingling Numbness on outside of right ear while sleeping?

Sleep on right side?: If this happens only when you are lying on your pillow, be sure that your earlobe is not folded. Perhaps you need a softer pillow. If you tend to sleep on the right side, this would likely be the cause for your problem. You need to clarify also whether the tingling awakes you from your sleep or noted only after you are awake.

I have tingling on the left side of my face, and I've been having sharp pains and stuffiness in my right ear on and off, could it be an ear infection?

I have tingling on the left side of my face, and I've been having sharp pains and stuffiness in my right ear on and off, could it be an ear infection?

Tingling: An ear infection can produce pain on the side of your face and head, but usually not tingling of the face, unless the infection is producing swelling and compressing nerves which travel near the ear. You definitely need someone to look in your ear and treat a possible ear infection before it worsens and damages your ear drum. Also consider shingles or Bell's palsy as a possible diagnosis.

I have stabbing pains in my right ear, also tingling and sensitivity in my left cheek below my eye. It's now in my left side & my face looks puffy?

Maybe something: To be concerned about? If you start breaking out in a rash or note paralysis of the face, see a doctor immediately! I'd see a doctor soon anyways from what you are describing?

I have tingling, puffiness and soreness in my right cheek under my eye moving to my left cheek. Also stabbing pains in my right ear.

Viral Syndrome: This sounds like a viral syndrome but this can be associated with preseptal cellulitis (which is a superficial infection around the eye) and sinusitis. You should first consult your primary care provider. You might have a secondary bacterial infection that might require antibiotics.

Pinched nerve and ear tingling burning, what should I do?

Pinched nerve and ear tingling burning, what should I do?

Get Imaging: When you say, "pinched nerve, " I am assuming you mean in the neck. Ear tingling and burning probably is a separate issue. I would talk to your doctor and consider an MRI of your brain and neck.

When I rub a particular area on my head I feel something inside my ear tingling, what is this?

When I rub a particular area on my head I feel something inside my ear tingling, what is this?

Hm...: First off, why do rub your head in that area? Is there anything hurting you there or just because... Possibly you are irritating a nerve... If you do not need to rub it, then don't rub. If it is bothersome or other symptoms appear, you will need to have a doc look at you.
