This is my first time doing this but I really would like some answers! If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Starting out i'm a 26 year old female. It started a couple days ago, I was just laying in bed when all of a sudden i started getting this weird tingling feeling in my upper lip. Felt like I just got shot up with novicane. Its been doing it everyday now, but constant (more at nighttime) and when I lay down. I have always had sinus issues but I dont feel clogged up like I normally do when I get sinus infections. Its this weird pressure that starts in my upper lip all the way across to my cheek bones, along side my nose towards my eyes. I really hate this feeling cause it feels like someone stuffed cotton under my top lip. I suffer from panic attacks as well, and since I don't know the feeling or like it, it makes me freak out. I'm hoping its just my sinus' getting the best of me and its an easy fix cause I am without health insurance and unemployed and cant afford to see a doctor to help me. Thanks so much if anyone can give me any answers!

  • i dont know but i am also feeling pressure on my left cheek bone near my nose, and at the begining i had a stuffed nose, but now my nose is more clear than it is when im not sick, but i still think it has something to do with a tiny cold i have. still it is annoying and it feels like someone hit me on my cheek.
