See an MD: Are you diagnosed with seizure disorder? It's normal to feel groggy and 'out of it' for a while after a seizure, but severe headaches don't necessarily go with seizures and would need to be worked up by an md.

Muscle twitching: This sounds like an irritable, superficial nerve or muscle fibers of uncertain etiology. It commonly occurs in an eyelid.

My right arm is twitching and my left leg plus the right side of my head is numb?

Odd symptoms: Antonio these symptoms don't follow anatomical correctness. Right arm and right side face and left leg. These are strange dysesthesias and don't follow the anatomical correctness of stroke for example and it would be very unlikely to be a stroke. But because they are odd, I would have a neurologist check you at least once. Thanks ...Read more

I've had a numbness like falling asleep senstation on right side of head comes and goes for a month and a weird twitching on left temple. Stress?

Unclear: Since you are being treated for a sinus infection situation is more complex. Pay attention to what part of right head goes numb. Nerves to anterior skull are different from nerves to posterior skull. The fact that you are young and symptoms are on opposite sides of head makes possibility of concerning illness less. Stress can cause non-specific, wierd symptoms; but caution when infection. ...Read more

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head also. Eye is dry also.

Daily twitching eyelid on left side with headache over eye that comes and goes. Sometimes neck pain or pain on back of head also. Eye is dry also.

No simple answer: The most common cause of achy pain around the eye that I see, comes from irritation of some nerves in the upper neck near the base of the skull. When they are irritated, there may be a tender spot to pressure over them in the neck but the body may be most aware of the pain felt around and behind the eye - called referred pain. For this particular cause, tratment must be delivered to the neck. ...Read more

Muscle irritability: The MRI and EMG just show nervous system is structurally intact. But muscle irritability won't show up on those. Muscle twitches can be caused by anxiety, hyperactive thyroid, electrolyte problems &medications/drugs. Talk to your doctor. If all these things have been ruled out, then non-addictive, long-acting medication can suppress anxiety and muscle irritability. Xanax (alprazolam) is for short term only. ...Read more
