What causes tightness on face with light headedness? - Online Doctor Chats
My face feels tight at times, warm to the feeling and touch, itchy, light headed and just want to sleep during the heated moments.
I am reading your query
What are those times, can you detail?
it all began on Tues and has continued since then...I have no energy, but force myself to get up and move around or get outside
Are you using any medicine for any other problem?
I refuse to take steroids
Have you checked out from home? Are you alone and feeling low in mood?
I am home today, no, not feeling low in mood per se, I am usually a very upbeat and going person, but with my face feeling the way it does, I attempt not to get too hyper active
Did it happen for the first time?
Do you have headache or migraine?
Tues 2/18 is when it came on heavy. I had noticed my face was itching over the weekend, but contributed that to working outside in the dusty dirt.
I had a minor aching in head but no migraine
Is the tightness on one part of the face or all over?
Do you see any lesions on the face?
I haven't eaten anything out of the ordinary to cause it and thought possibly it could have been working in the desert dust
nope, no lesions, just red face every now and again...it is still warm to touch even when not red
itchy yes, at times tingling, hurts at times also
tightness all over
However since this is the first time I am unable to confirm it
what is "cluster headache"?
Where there is mod to severe pain, redness. occurs in clusters or groups and other time you willl be normal
this is the first time it has ever happened. What is neuralgia?
These should respond to simple over the counter pain killers most of the time
MOTRIN or ADVIL should do the trick along with good hydration and rest
Neuralgia is spread over the distribution of a nerve on the face
where there is tightness, pain and tingling
if I have a pinched nerve, could this be something to do with that?
Neuralgia has sx of pinched nerve
But what could pinch it suddenly?
okay, that helps me,
menopause I am
You do not have to go a Neurologist, but an Internal Medicinist should be ok
great, I will look into one
IM specialist is better than ER specialist
Since you have not gone to right one, I think you can try one appnt
underlying stress, I most likely have, possible dehydration...okay, getting somewhere that I can start with
Yeah thre you are
Cut down coffee, alcohol or carbonated stuff
Start calcium supplements
okay, I do drink a lot of coffee, and diet soda
Relax, spa and neck massages may hep
reduce the stress
great, feeling better mentally already just with possible ideas
As long as it is not confirmed never feel that you are sick
I can't reduce the stress too much at this time, I need my job
The feeling will take away your XXXXXXX and different sx set in
oh I continually tell myself I can't get sick, too much life to live to be sick
Job is not stress if you enjoy it, Am I right?
I do not enjoy "where" I work, I love what I do, just don't care for all of the politics at work
That is everywhere
You may find some happy people around but who knows they are not reacting to these dirty politics
So it is about our reaction that is stress
at my age I cannot afford to go looking for another job, I am a Certified Nursing Assistant, the health insurance is good and I have a child still at home
Hang around, mingle with people who are like you
At least you find one
that is enough
problem is, I am in my 50's with 20 years experience and the others are in their 20's with no experience.
okay, thank you very much, that is something to start with and well worth the payment
That is ok you have priorities and they have theirs
but not to share a cup of XXXXXXX
Ok All the best
Have good health
it will all be well now that I have something to work with
thank you so much
