I always get a warm sensation feeling up my neck and right ear. Wat is this??

Nerve: Most likely this is an irritability of a nerve emanating from the neck called the occipital nerve. AT times This nerve also causes pain in that distribution. Disc problems, arthritic spurs may cause impingement of this nerve, but often there is no obvious reason for the irritability. You could consult a neurologist if you have further concerns but at this time your symptom appears more of a nuisanc ...Read more

Tingling Sensation that comes and go. RT of my face and ears, feet, hands. It gets worse when I'm sitting down.

Tingling Sensation that comes and go. RT of my face and ears, feet, hands. It gets worse when I'm sitting down.

B12 deficiency: I assume that you are taking vit B12 because you are deficient. Tingling in fact can be due to low B12. But vitamin B12 is very poorly absorbed when taken by mouth. The best way to take it is by injection. You can get a prescription for shots from your doctor and give yourself a shot every month or even more often — as often as every week. Tingling can also be from rapid breathing due to anxiety. ...Read more
