Cheek and Bicep Constantly Tingling.....Causes?

Postby Karoz » Sat Feb 24, 2007 4:09 pm

Over the past week, my left cheek and my left bicep have been tingling, which is really annoying me. At first, I didn't mind it, as it almost felt like someone was massaging my left bicep, which was a good thing. However, it has started to become very annoying, and I would really like to make it stop.

Does anyone know what could be causing this? If so, do you have any suggestions as to how to stop it?

I don't know what it is, but you should see a doctor. Even if it isn't even that painful/uncomfortable, just check it out to be safe.

I'm not a doctor. Take this with a grain of salt.





When I hear "tingling," the first thing I think about is nerve "issues." This could be like a pinched nerve affecting your left side or it could be a serious issue.

The second thing I think about this is that you say it's on your left side. Again, not being a doctor this is a wild guess, but it could be related to your heart. The left side is usually where you're going to feel heart-attack related pain, which is why I say that.



Now, DO NOT PANIC because I say this. Again, I'm just some schmoe on the internet. :-B



The bottom line is, GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR. Even if it's nothing or something really mild, at least you'll know.

If it is serious, the sooner you get it checked out the better.

So go get checked out!

I don't know if this is the same thing. I used to get twitches I couldn't control with biceps and calf. Doctor said it was something with the nervous system... or something, and that I would grow out of it. (This was when I was about 15) Was nothing to worry about for me and it went away after a few months with nothing really bad. Just a couple of tingles a bit. Wish I could remember the specifics but at the time I remember just being happy he said it would stop on its own.

I think age has something to do with it. If your over 18 I would recommend getting it checked out asap. Although if you have only been having it for a week I might not worry much.

I scheduled an appointment with my doctor, but it's not until Tuesday.

My initial thought was that I had a pinched nerve in my neck. I have tried stretching my neck as often as I can, but it hasn't helped thus far. Hopefully it isn't related to my heart in any way, but just as you said, the fact that it is my left side does raise a few concerns.

I think knapps assessment is pretty good. For sure go get your checked out! It may be nothing but it may be something serious that can be helped with early detection. ;-D

If you're a tennis player with a two-handed backhand I would guess that you are overswinging and hitting yourself in the face. That's my best guess. Go see a doctor and ask him to check out your backhand.

Oh, man, this cracked me up. :-b

Seriously, though, go see a doctor.

It could be a side effect or reaction from your current medication. Are you taking anything now?

Also, is it more of a tingling feeling or a pulsating beat or combination of both?
