The side of my face--jaw and in front of ear area--and side of neck are having the sensation of being asleep, you know, like your foot goes to sleep? But it's been going on for a few hours. What causes that?

Could be a "warning stoke", a TIA. Think Brett Michaels.

It's not numb, just tingling like I were hyperventilating, but I'm not.

Tingling can be a sign of stroke too. But it could just be an ear infection or a cold sore. I would go get checked out better safe than sorry!

Hmm I do have uncontrolled HTN but I didn't think tingling could indicate impending stroke or TIA. Thanks.

I've always wanted to ask you, that image under your name, is that supposed to be a chewed up pencil?

Just on the off chance it's a stroke, and it certainly sounds as though that is a possibility, shouldn't you be heading to the emergency room to find out instead of posting on CD??!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not a stroke. LOL I think someone might be right about my neck because it's been hurting off and on for a few weeks.

Thanks for responses.

Tingling in the jaw, side of face, front of neck = a sensory problem. Cranial Nerve V (trigeminal nerve) affects sensation to the face, anterior to the ears. Cervical plexus affects side of neck.

Map it out using this picture, and then read about the possible causes:
