Headaches / tingling - neuralgia?

Hi,
Last year I started having some tingling feelings or "fullness/tightness" around my left temple. I saw a neurologist who said my neurological examination was perfect, and sometimes you can have some over stimulation of the nerves, he gave me some sample medication to try if it became bothersome, but that was that.
About a month ago, the tingling and feelings of fullness, and just plain out funny feelings around my temple have gotten much worse, they are usually always their (I'm having them right now), and I went back to see him.
Last week I had an MRI of my brain, and it showed I had a small cyst in my brain I was probably born with, and I had sinuitis. The doctor called to tell me this, but still tells me not to be concerned, he said that it didnt' show any tumors, mass's, or growths, and nothing pushing on any nerves.
But this is becoming almost like a disability, sometimes I feel like somethings under my skin, around my left eye, eyebrow, temple, etc. I'm only 24 years old and I've never had any head trauma to sustain this. On friday I see him for a follow up to go over some treatment options and get an explanation for all of this. Plus, to top things off tommorow I'm getting braces put on, to help straighten my teeth (obviously) but also to help align my jaw as I've had some TMJ problems with my left ear.
If anyone knows anything or can help out at all please just post. I am so scared and dissapointed and depressed its been really difficult to get through all of this.
Chris
