What Causes Tingling In Chin
What causes chin tingling and numbness? Sometimes feels like something crawling in chin. Had it for a week now.
Chin Numbness: Numbness in the chin, especially if on one side may be caused by irritation of the 3rd dividion of the 5th cranial nerve. This may be casued by inflammation, infection, or pressure as the nerve passes through the lower jaw. The nerve may also be irritated as it leaves the brain stem. Generally it is advisable to have any new onset facial numbness evaluated and even studied with mri.See 1 more doctor answer

Anxiety: I understand your concern. Your symptoms are likely due to stress in your life. At age 36, stresses of relationship, marriage, separation, parenting, unresolved feelings of worry, fear, hurt, resentment; work and finances can cause Anxiety with physical symptoms. This is not normal; it indicates need to see a Psychiatrist for Diagnosis and Therapy. Do Breathing Relaxation, Yoga and Meditation.
Irritated nerve: An irritated or pinched nerve in the neck on left side or in the scalp itself is likely cause.
Vague: I would see your dr. Who would possibly refer you to a neurologist. Tests may have to be run to help diagnosis your ailment. Feeling disconnected concerns me and should you too, especially if you are driving or doing other chores that can create a dangerous situation.

Sinusitis: This is not a typical sinus symptom which usually consists of pain with associated nasal congestion and drainage of mucus. Neuralgia, which is an irritation/inflammation of a superficial nerve in the forehead, is more likely. It's not serious and usually resolves in a few days. See your MD if symptoms persist or worsen.
Might a pinched nerve in your neck cause shooting pains when you turn your head and cause tingling?
Dr. Roy G. Spurling: When you turn your head to one side & experience tingling and shooting pain (radiculopathy) in your arm, upper back or shoulder region on the same side your neck was turned to, it may be indicative of a pinched nerve (foraminal stenosis; nerve root impingement. Modification of this maneuver performed by the doctor is called spurling's maneuver or sign, named after the neurosurgeon who named it.
Not serious: By itself this symptom does not mean much Stress may explain it Local scalp conditions should be ruled out
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.
