| | Twitching Temple
Anyone have this happen to them?
Several weeks ago, I had a twitch in my left temple, much like the kind you get in the corner of the eye from time to time. It lasted all day. It continued to come back from time to time and about 2 weeks ago, the frequency became greater. Last week, I started having it everyday. Not just that, but it was suddenly accompanied by a numb/tingling around portions of the left side of my head, around the left eye, and down to the jaw (which now twitches from time to time). With that, I've also developed an electric tingling like a band around my head. It's more pronounced in the forehead and I'm getting occasional twitching in my right temple, now. With all of this, I begin to feel distant though aware. It's driving me insane.
A friend of mine, a doctor, says he can't think of anything that would cause it except tension. Well, the kicker is that I don't have much stress in my life. I am a yoga instructor who owns the business and am very happy with the work I do. Very relaxed most of the time, aside from the few upsets we can all expect in life. I, and my doctor friend, am at a loss.
I am going to see my regular doctor tomorrow or Friday (depending on when I can get an appointment), but I was wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar, what came of it, and what they found helpful. I am pretty derned certain that relaxation exercises are useless with this as I've done them all. And, gosh, I wasn't as stressed out about anything until I got stressed out about this not subsiding.
Thanks in advance for any help. If I get any immediate information from my regular doctor, I will post it for anyone who may be interested.
