Why do I have chills on the right side of my face and neck ?

Chills thru right side of face and neck, no fever , recent concussion I have constant headache which would be normal after a serious concussion. Recently I have been getting chills thru my boby, mostly to the right side of my face and neck. They continue throughout the day. I do get some numbing with these chill. My TBI doc and Neurologist have ruled out any side effects of medication and CAT scan of blood vessels looked okay. Yet no one can explain the chills and numbness that I am having. This is my 6th concussion and some were due to explosions in Afghanistan. Can anyone help please?

welcome to healthcaremagic
the recurrent concussion may have caused some injury to the cutaneaous nerves supplying the area
it may be due to air pressure associated with explosion
even the trigeminal ganglion may also be affected by same force and give rise to the features described
hope it will pass of in 6 months if no further similar injury takes place

hi
as ur ct scan looks ok
i dont think u need to worry
our brain have different spot for each function.
some times it is possible to get spot activate without any reason
spot for chills is activate spontaneously in u ,so u get it
it can occur after trauma
by time u will get rid of it for sure

I am female, 42yrs old 5,10 and 145lbs. I Have played competitive sports my whole life. I am fit, eat only whole foods and drink about 2liters of water a day. I am fair skinned and freckled with dark blonde hair and blue eyes. Three days ago I took a small nap under the sun (about 15mins) when I was in the high alps and woke up to a horrific stinging on my forehead, tremors, chills and nausea. I knew that it was probably due to sun exposure because I only put SPF30 on my face, not on my forehead because I had a hat on when I applied and then took it off to sleep. Today I woke up feeling great as usual BUT the right side of my forehead is really swollen, it looks almost elephant man-ish. I see there is a small eruption in the right hand corner and I have (which seems like) dried pus. I have washed it a few times and the crust washes away but then comes back after about an hour but I have not actually seen liquid pus. Underneath the skin, feels tender but does not in any way look like a giant blister. I have looked all over the web and have found nothing close to what I have. PLease help. Thank you.

So I ve had this cough for a while. First it was a dry hack and the doctor stated it was likely allergies, which I have never had before. Then after taking some medication, which included over the counter serytec (spell?) it seemed to go away this was back in the March / April time frame of this year. Then in mid June I got sick with what I thought was a cold or flu with achy body, chills, runny nose, cough, and I ve always had a bit of a stiff neck shoulder area. This eventually went away then in Mid July I got sick again this time with no runny nose but a cough, headache, chills, sore throat, and little ear pain. I also notice that at night I seem to have more phelm then normal. My cough is periodic but when I do cough it feels like my head is going to blow off my body -- throbbing pain. Anyway, I went to have a chest X-ray today I am a 57 year old female in good health, weight, blood pressure, etc. I am a past tobacco user and my husband smokes so I am around 2nd hand smoke frequently. My mother died of brain cancer when she was 51 years old and she too was in good health -- so the brain cancer was such a shock. My pain in my head when I wake up in the morning is like behind my right eye -- feels like sinus pressure. But yet, my face does not hurt like sinus issues.

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
