shakehead  I have had problems with the right side of my head and face with tingling sometimes.
I am not doing anything that I know to cause it. Plus once in awhile I will feel faint and things to go dark and I want to pass out. The Dr. is not sure what it is.
Maybe someone can tell me if they have had these problems and give me some ideas .
Thank you for reading this..

Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.  I have not experienced the tingling..............or the darkness.  What does your physician think it is?  Have you been dx with anxiety?

I am sure other members will be along and offer you some advice so please do stick with us.

Again a warm welcome

I get a tingling or goose bump feeling on my right and left side of my head every so often. But I do not get to the point I want to pass out. I do get very anxious when this happens and get lightheaded because my breathing, heart, all goes haywire. Which I have to catch it before I let it get to far.

The only time I feel faint is with anything to do with doctors,needles, surgery etc. Basicly anything medical. And it doesn't just have to be for me. My dog had surgery and I did NOT handle it well what so ever. I almost passed out in the back seat of our truck. And all I was supposed to do was comfort her on the way home. Instead my mom (who went for moral support) ended up comforting me.

I personally think the super sensitivity that my head does is just that. I get very sensitive to things sometimes so whey not my skin and such.

Sorry I can't offer much more then that for peace of mind.

I would talk to your doctor and see about seeing someone for this. He might know where to send you for the proper testing.

Is your face actually numb when this happens? My friend had Bell's Palsy last year and one side of her face went numb. Her eye was also droopy. It sounds worse than it is though. It goes away after awhile. What about sinus trouble? I've had facial tingling and numbness when I've gotten a sinus infection. It feels that way right under my eye. It could be anxiety too. I've had that happen occasionally when I'm feeling panicky.

I had a tingling on the left side near my nose for a while, which was pretty obviously stress related -- it only happened when I was really stressed out or having a major anxiety attack. Occasionally, during times of high stress, I also get a tingling and a twitching/tic on the left side of my lower lip.

I to have the same problem. I have had tingling in my head for several months. Many doctors can't seem to figure out the problem. They look at me as though I am nuts. I have not changed anything. It gets to the point where I almost have a panic attack. I will see a neurologist on 8/14. Maybe a scan is in order. Hope you can get your symptoms under control. I am wondering if this is a female issue or do men experience the same problem???
