  • I've had the same thing over the last few days, with a severe day-long migraine-like headache yesterday, when I also had swollen eyes and sinuses, with signs of infection. Today I visited a chiropractor and found the nose feeling (similar to a wayward hair brushing it) was worse, moving around on my nose and to my cheek a bit, as I lie on a shiatsu massage table, After I'd "loosened up" from several minutes on the table, the sensation subsided and has not returned since my adjustment. My chiropractor advised I might want to investigate possible cranial nerve involvement and other things such as MS, if symptoms returned and persisted. From searches tonight, my symptoms seem pretty typical of something like sinus or slight nerve pinching, but I wll take the doctor's advice to seek further help in the event of renewed symptoms. I want to remain cognizant of stroke symptoms, even though this may not necessarily indicate something like that, the need for immediate help in that event is so great that it pays to be prepared. I hope this helps !
