Comments: The anatomy involves trigeminal nerve, but the cause may be complex. There is a sensory trigeminal neuropathy which could do this, but one might consider problems in jaw or mouth as a provocateur. Some intracranial situations should be excluded via MRI.

I would try artificial tears during the day, ointment at night, warm compresses, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, see an eye doctor for further treatment. ...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

I have had a weird tingling on the left side of my head, mostly near my temple, for the past few days. It seems to come in spurts. No trauma.

Temple tingling: A few different things come to mind. Sometimes eye fatigue can cause twitching and tingling in the muscles surrounding the eye. Shingles can present with tingling and burning in the few days before a rash comes out. Even with no trauma, superficial nerve compression in the area can give tingling - like sleeping on that side, using a headband or hat. See your doc if no improvement! ...Read more
