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.
