tingling in cheek

I am a 40yr old female.  I exercise regularly, at least 4 times a week.  Yesterday while at the gym I experienced some tingling in my left cheek.  I did twenty minutes on the arc and then proceeded to the treadmill.  WHile on the treadmill I walked for 6 minuted and then jogged for 4 minuted, walked for three and then statred jogging.  After jogging about two minutes I noticed thta my left cheek felt tingling.  I touched it to make sure, I could still feel my touch, I made a few faces at myself in the mirror, everything seemed to work fine.  I stopped jogging and reduced to a walk and continued walking for another 10 mins.  The tingling lasted about 1 min.  As soon as I reduced my speed and began to cool down it was gone.  Is this something to worry about?  I have recently statred taking Effexor XL for flushing and anxiety, 35ml once a day.  I have been on this for about 1 1/2 weeks.  Could that have been a side effect?  Today the left cheek just feels a bit more noticeable than the other but no tingling.  Could it be sinuses?  Should I be alarmed or just this be from overexerion?  ( I don't usually jog ) thanks

I am a 52 year old female - hypothyroid.  My #'s were really off and at that time I was experiencing tingling in the left side of my face.  I have no idea why, but it had to have something to do with the fact that my TSH # was way off the chart.  Since I have been put on new medication it has ceased all together.  Do you have any signs of being hypothyroid?  Just a thought.

There are so many symptoms of being hypothyroid, it really does affect your mind and entire body.  Unusual weight gain (midsection); brain fog (can't remember the names of things like a "fan"; problems sleeping; loss of eyebrows; complete exhaustion (I mean being bone tired); constipation; swollen face; joint pain; cold hands and feet/intolerance to cold; loss of hair; depression; no sex drive, just to name what comes to mind.  Your doctor should do a complete thyroid panel, which would include Free T3 and free T4.... among others.

What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?  I have had tingling in my cheek for almost 6 years, what kind of test should be done?  Did you have tingling anywhere else?  Thanks.
