Tingling in face when chewing?? Can this this be a symptom of my already existing TMJ disorder? Or is it not possible to TMJ to cause tingling?

Tingling in face when chewing?? Can this this be a symptom of my already existing TMJ disorder? Or is it not possible to TMJ to cause tingling?

While nothing is: While nothing is impossible, tingling in face would not be a likely result of TMD\TMJ Dysfunction. I would first consult with a dentist experienced treating TMJoint Dysfunction. You might be referred to your PCP or Neurologist if the dentist concurs with my suspicion and there are no other apparent dental causes such as an infection. ...Read more

Migraine or seizure: When tingling travels, it can be migraine aura or a simple partial seizure. If it travels over seconds, it can be seizure. This is called jacksonian march. If it travels over minutes, more likely migraine aura. In either case, you should see a neurologist. ...Read more

Since the symptoms of a mini stroke I've be getting headaches and tingling /numbness on left side of head could this be related please am so scared!!!

Headaches are: unusual for stroke but tingling/numbness on one side of the head is definitely suspect. Though there are other things that could cause numbness tingling, such as atypical migraine or neuralgia/ facial nerve paralysis. Please check with your healthcare provider and get the help you need, but be calm and don't worry as much. ...Read more

Can anxiety cause a tingling sensation left side of face left arm and left calf on and off today. No other symptoms. If I'm busy I feel it less.

See that you have a: # of medical conditions. I would not assume that the tingling sensation you are experiencing is due to anxiety. The reason you may feel symptom less when you are busy is that it distracts you from focusing on the sensation. Take care. ...Read more

If worsening, spreading (arms, hands), or you have weakness (arms, hands), or trouble walking, go to your doctor, who can ask you more questions and examine you.

Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more

See your neurologist.: These symptoms are not psychiatric. They are neurologic in nature and likely coming from your seizure disorder. It's also possible that it could be a side effect of your medications either directly or indirectly through a vitamin deficiency. Do not change any of your medications obviously without discussing things with your neurologist and your psychiatrist. You should always alert both of your physicians when new symptoms emerge. It would also be a good idea to be in therapy and have a psychologist as a liaison to help if you are having difficulty expressing these things to your physicians. ...Read more
