numbness in head, tingling in face and fingers, ears ringing

I have started to experience the oddest sense of full ears, pressure,in neck and lower head, numbness and tingling in head and face for four weeks
Am being diagnose with vertigo now, but I never get spinny dizzy, just odd aura, plugged ear feeling, cold fingers

I do clench teeth at night, do not wear by mouth guard and suspect it could be TMJ

Please comment

Re: numbness in head, tingling in face and fingers, ears ringing

It does sound like tmj - clenching is usually a sign of a bie or jaw position problem but I wouldn't rule out a cervical or c-cpine problem either - but both tend to go hand in hand in that if the jaw is mis-positioned it can push against the c-cpine. The best way to narrow it down is to rule out other medcial possibiilties and/or conditions and then see a tmj specialist to be evaluated and have an MRI or tomogram done to check your joints and neck.

you sound like me. My symptoms were exactly the same and lasted 6years, until i found a doctor who recognized my symptoms as a vitamin defencency. I was not able anymore to absorb vitamin B12 through my stomach lining. YOu need a blood test from your doctor to confirm this. YOUr nervous system needs B12 to function properly. Without it, it acts up. I started on B12 shots for 7 days as well as over the counter sublinguals. (tablets that are dissolved under my tongue throughout the day). I will continue to get injections for the rest of my life but I"m healthy now and pain free. It's worth a try. good luck!
