I have 2 questions regarding something concerning me and was wondering if anyone could offer some insight. Occasionally, I will get this odd sensation on the left side of my face - in front of my ear and going down to the jawline. It kind of feels like numbness or that area is "dropping" Its a really quick sensation and goes away immediately but I've noticed it occasionally in the past 6 months or so. What could this be?

Also this might be a trivial thing but I've noticed a point on my forehead just around the hairline - again on the left side - when I put gentle pressure on the area like scratch or rub the area I get a tingling sensation in my ear! Is this normal?!

Thanks in advance.
