Hi all I am an asian male 30+ y/o. Recently had a sudden pain at the right side of the back of the head where the neck joins the head behind the right ear. Not sure if this might be the cause.
I have stiff neck quite often due to sleep posture and also from using the pc on the bed. I have stopped all these.
For the 1 month or so, i have this slight numb feeling in the scalp area. It is here for 2 weeks, disappeared for 1 and now its back for a week. once a day or so, there would be a tingling sensation in the scalp, the feeling is a little like what you get from eating a sour or citrus fruit. It comes once or so and its gone.
FOr the last few days i have tight feeling below the cheekbone, side of right side of the head above the right ear, to the back right side of the head. My neck is a little stiff. The right eyelid feels heavy but i can move the face, mouth eyebrows evenly. Its like the feeling that the eye feels a little swollen. I have this problem sometimes of rubbing my eye when my fringe hair is at eye level, will sometimes unwittingly rub my eye when asleep and did rub a little the past few days.
For the last few days i had twitching beneath the right eye and 2 days on the lower right lips. The twitching on the lips is gone now and the lips twitch isnt there too. I read that it can be caused by stress, caffiene, staring at the pc too long ( all i am) have quite the wrong posture and cut down on coffee.
I read on the net that it could be stress and this could be as i am relocating to another country very soon with many uncertainties and add to that I have anxiety disorder and not on any medications.
I am reluctant to see a doctor because its very likely that they would say its stress and really dont have a lot of money to do many tests but i do fear it could be something serious.
could it be that the posture isnt right and that i have injured my neck causing the numbness in the right side of the face? All help is appreciated.
