Customer Question
I woke up this morning...
I woke up this morning and felt like I had been hit in the face. All day I have had tingling around the hair line and now it is radiating down in my neck. I work outside every day in the sun and heat. Please advise what I should do. I drink lots of fluids.

Please have some patience, I am still online to give an answer.

The pain and tingling on your face seems to be from mild sunburn injury. However, if the pain is severe, it could be neuropathic pain arising from nerve fibers.

Neuropathic pain often seems to have no obvious cause; although alcoholism, vitamin B defciency, facial nerve problems , diabetes may be associated factors.

For the painyou can take OTC pain killers like aleve or motrin along with an OTC H2 blocker like prilosec 20 mg. You should also take multivitamins as supplements daily for at least a month. If you continue to have your symptoms or they worsen, please consult a neurologist.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
