Is it possible to have facial tingling from cervical problems? I have a bulging disk at C-3. When my neck is hurting and in spasm, my jaw feels stiff and I will feel this weird bug crawling sensation across my face for a few seconds and then gone. I also feel this when I turn my neck to back up while in my Jeep. Can anyone relate?
YES! I have posted things on this site and others about this before. Not only was I having the tingling, my face was even drooping. My neurologist really didn't know what the problem was. I was always told that those nerves don't go that way. Now, I know differently. I found out that mine was caused by my facet joints. My doctor cauterized the nerve endings there and I no longer have this numb, tingling and drooping. Check this out and also Trigimenal Neralgia for some possible causes.
Wow!! Someone who can relate, great!!! What disk was your problem? I have had this for 8 years now, there is no pain, just kinda a tickly feeling, not like a limb going to sleep feeling. I have looked into TN, I don't seem to fit this description. Was yours aggravated by neck movement at all? Its awful. Everytime it happens, I worry about it. Thanks so much for the input. Jen
My whole neck is affected but I have had surgery on C4-C6. Mine felt like it was tingling and it was aggravated by neck pain but I am not sure about the movement. Also check the kinds of meds you take. Could it be something with that and a neck problem too? I am just throwing out some ideas that my doc looked at when he fixed mine.
