Strange symptoms?

About a month ago my started having twitches on my face, mostly eye and lip. That subsided and I started having a feeling like chills on my head, on one side or another. Then muscle twitches in my legs and hands, both sides, but not at once. Yesterday I woke up with a headache, not unusual because I have sleep apnea; but at one point in the morning I got the chills on the left side of my head but this time it spread to the left side of my face, felt like pins and needles, then like my face had been shot with Novocain. Went away after a while and took aleve for headache. No slurred speech or weakness and no drooping. I have been treated for recurring outer ear infections and sinus infections for almost a year. Every couple of months I have to take Ceftin for 10 days. I need to see ENT obviously. I have an appt with neuro on 9/17. Just really nervous about the chills feeling on head and what happened with my face yesterday. Also the muscles twitching, though it is not painful. Does anyone have any thoughts on what this sounds like? Googling is just freaking me out.

Re: Strange symptoms?

Hi Contestnana,

I would question the long term use of Ceftin as the cause to what you are experiencing. Antibiotics come with side effects just like any other medication.

Do you use a sinus rinse? If not you might try it as they can help reduce sinus infections.

When you see the Neurologist be sure to mention the usage of antibiotics (how much, what kind, length prescribed).

Re: Strange symptoms?

That's a good point and I will mention it. I'm mostly concerned about the symptoms being an immediate emergency but I am feeling ok today other than the chills on left side of head on and off.

Re: Strange symptoms?

Dear Contestnana,

I suggest never doing random googling. The teaching hospital Mayo Clinic website is a reliable source of information.

However, the symptoms you have are most commonly caused by tension in the neck, back, shoulders and scalp. I have those symptoms frequently. Yes they can be 'shocking' pardon the pun. I get those symptoms a lot from the cockeyed way I stand.
