Numbness and Pressure Behind Nose

Not quite sure where to place this, but I figure nerve conditions might be the place to start.

I recently started wearing glasses. While flying a few days ago, I noticed that I felt the glasses still on my face after I'd taken them off. No pain, just a sensation of weight, that quickly turned to pins and needles all up and down my nose. After a little while, the pins and needles spread to the lower left chin and jaw, and to what feels sort of like the inner ear.

Went to bed, woke up the next morning, no problems. This was this past Thursday. Flew back night before last (Mon/Tues Night/Morning), and am currently (Wednesday evening) experiencing identical symptoms, with the phantom weight sensation less pronounced, but replaced by a pressure behind the spot where my nose joins my face, spreading a little behind both eyes. It intensifies for short periods of time, almost pulsing, and then quiets down, but doesn't leave.

I do not currently have a sinus infection, and have not for at least three months now. I have ADHD, and childhood asthma which does not act up at all anymore, but otherwise, no known medical conditions. I recently had a strange rash, and injured tendons in my right knee.

Any ideas?
