Tingling In Neck And Face
Probably not: Of course, all things are possible, but your description does not sound like a blood clot. Frankly, it sounds much more like an anxiety reaction. I would tell your doctor about it and let him or her do any appropriate testing, after they examine you, to make sure. Then, they can begin appropriate treatment if it is really needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a drinking problem I used to do meth I have red on the inside of my right eye and I have tingling In my face neck and arm numbness to ?
Appreciate open &...: directness of the question. Happy to provide an answer, that may not be as concrete. For one it depends on how bad are the drinking and past drug problems. These symptoms could certainly be a non serious nerve irritation but also may be cardiomyopathy from alcohol or serious heart attack warning signs from meth. So without a complete evaluation, this could be a serious condition. ...Read more
Not typically : The nerves that supply sensation to the face are cranial nerves that exit directly out of the skull and so are not typically associated with cervical spine problems directly. Don't hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
Yes: A pinched nerve certainly can, most notably in a distribution starting at the base of your skull in the back and wrapping up around your scalp and onto your forehead on one side. Irritation to some nerves in your neck can also lead to lower face and head tingling as well. If it progresses, or if it does not go away in a few weeks, you may need some imaging to make sure there is no entrapment. ...Read more

It is possible: Muscle tension can certainly cause tingling in the face by causing referred symptoms and affecting the superficial nerves.

A physiatrist can help develop a treatment plan for this and can help look for other causes. ...Read more
Upper neck/back pain for 5yrs & migraines 10+ yrs. Back is hurting worse daily causing severe migraines + numbness/tingling on left side of face.
Both cheeks on face still tingling on and off since 12/24. I don't have visual probs, no stiff neck, no headache. Does this sound serious? I'm 18.
Might be ok: It does not sound worrisome. Tingling is not always a sign of an illness, and since the symptoms come and go, there may not be much of an explanation in the end. A total loss of sensation or weakness, especially on one side, is more concerning. There's nothing wrong with checking with your doctor, but a week of symptoms like this is not an emergency. ...Read more
Got new mattress, 2 months hurts, wake up daily pain. Now back/neck pain, tingling in face. Did sleeping on too hard surface cause damage? What to do
Back & neck pain: A hard mattress is supposed to be good for your back, if you can't return it give a little it a little longer time to get used to it, you can also use a soft foam mattress padding to give you some comfort.
