    Weird feeling in head

    Hey guys,

    I'm obviously new here and came here because I thought it'd be a good place to ask. I've had this very strange numbness/tingling sensation on the left side of my head, going from the temple to about 3 or 4 inches across and also up diagonal to my eyebrow. I started noticing it over a year ago when I was getting a haircut and the lady was trimming my sideburns.

    If I put pressure in different spots I get this weird feeling in my left eye and I can't say it's pain but a very uncomfortable and new sensation. Recently I was reading Men's health and read something that it could have to do with a Brain Tumor and now I'm worried as it gets. I'm a healthy 20 yr old male, studying abroad in Spain. I got it checked out in the states, but the appointment was rushed and the doctor seemed right out of college.

    Has anyone ever heard of this? It's hard to explain, its only on the left side and its a tingling type of feeling. Thank you so much...

    Regards,

    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    You need to get this checked again. I recently had a tingling feeling on the right side of my head and ended up having a stroke. I still get the feeling now and then and am going for a lumbar puncture this week to look for MS (I have other symptoms also.) I go by the theory that you know your own body better than anyone else. If something does not feel right - push to find out what it is. Good luck to you - let us know how you do. Bernadette

    Hi there, I recently had an MRI done and they found a pineal cyst. I too had tingling, but also tinnitus and a pressure feeling in my head, I would push for an MRI, tell them you have constant headaches to ensure an MRI . Otherwise they will sum it up to stress or some other convenient answer.
    Many blessings. Tina

    Guess what? Woke up this morning with a small bump near my ear and my sideburns. Hurts so much when I touch it. What could this be? A tumor? Going to hosptial today. Wish me luck. Iím so worried.

    locobaker, what did you find out? I have the same feeling in my head and I do not have insurance so have done nothing about this yet.
