Tingling on right side of head that hurts, but not like headache.  Had numb arms several days ago.  Legs also feel funny?

Go to your doctor: ASAP. These are not normal findings, and if you've had them for some time, it really needs to be evaluated by a physician, who can do a physical exam, run some lab tests, and also discuss your history in more detail, and recommend a plan. You may need to see a neurologist based on your findings. Good luck! ...Read more

Pins and needles right leg and foot and tingling right side of head.i have sciatica lower left side.knotted pain left shoulder?

Not sciatica: Sciatica could not explain the fascias tingling. A cervical disk problem could cause shoulder symptoms but would also not explain your face tingling. If these symptoms see new go immediately to the ER. If they have been there for a while go see a doctor. This could be a stroke or serious brain problem. ...Read more

Tingling numb pressure on right front side of head, forehead and down cheek. Sinus or something else?

Tingling numb pressure on right front side of head, forehead and down cheek. Sinus or something else?

I doubt it is: sinus congestion or infection. The most common cause of facial tingling is nerve entrapment possibly from trauma/injury. There are also diseases of the nerves themselves from neuropathy (? diabetes) or even multiple sclerosis. Chemical exposures can also impact facial nerves as can migraine. It is typically not an emergency so you can watch/wait a few days. If it doesn't resolve, see your Doctor. ...Read more

Tingling on the right side of my head. What can that be? A nurse said it may be stress and wearing too many hats that are tight. Like shivers!

All True: Stress is not an uncommon finding as to head pain. It could also be the tight hat. Go without one for a while. Usually this would be a non concerning issue and you are quite young so I would not worry too much. Reduce your caffeine and see if this all gets better. ...Read more

Sharp pain on right side of head with tingling down the right side of my face. Feeling faint too.

Sharp pain on right side of head with tingling down the right side of my face. Feeling faint too.

Perhaps hypoglycemic: Did you have a good breakfast this morning? I know you're across the pond so perhaps by my standards the answer would be NO! LOL! Nevertheless, HYPO glycemia comes to mind only because of your symptom of feeling faint. The sharp pain could be from a slight tension type headache. Do you get headaches? How long did the head pain last? Has this happened before? Fill us in a bit more please. ...Read more
