Can improper placement of needle & numbing agent in lower jaw cause temporary facial paralysis/tingling & severe pain in jaw, ear, neck & back of head?
Anesthetic Block: An inferior alveolar nerve block of your lower jaw will anesthetize either your left or right side, making it feel numb and "paralyzed". Pain in your jaw, ear, neck, and back of head may be a reaction to the anesthetic, not necessarily due to improper technique. Since every issue was temporary, you should heal without incident.

I have tingling sensation on back of head that lasts 15 seconds for past few days, what could this be?
That could be tough: In that it doesn't sound like a disease process. No headaches? No new scalp products? Hair not pulled too tight? Have u been grinding your teeth at night? If this is your only sx and nothing else occurring it will likely be a transient problem in my opinion. If it worsens, evoles into headaches go in. Sometimes we can just tell whether or not something is disease, not it's exact cause. Gd luc. Read more
