Customer Question
A few days ago...

A few days ago I woke up dizzy and had a hard time walking straight. That went away and no more of it in the last 4 days but tonight all of the sudden I feel a tingling on the left side of my face by the top of my check and ear?? Should I be concerned?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

Just the one time for each and no skin conditions

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I am really pretty healthy. I work out and do cardio and eat healthy

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, I strongly recommend to visit Emergency room as such sudden tingling sensation on one side of face indicates the possibility of Transient Ischemic Attack.

Other possible cause may include Ear infection, Trigeminal neuralgia.

You should take OTC Aspirin and Meclizine ASAP.

Your blood pressure should be monitored.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

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.
