Entire Leg Pain or Sciatica Pain- Cause of the pain is mostly in the vertebral column, spinal cord or retroperitoneal tissue in lumbar segment.
Partial Leg Pain- Partial leg pain spreads over hip, knee and ankle joint as well skin and soft tissue between joint. Sciatica pain of entire leg is caused by irritation or pinch of lumbar 3rd, 4th, 5th and sacral S1 nerve. Pain caused by abnormality of S1 (sacral first) nerve spreads over entire leg, feet and outer 3 toes.
Lumbar Disc Bulge- Lumbar disc bulge causes irritation or pinch of the lumbar spinal nerve.
Foraminal Stenosis- Lumbar Spinal nerves passes out from spinal canal through spinal foramina or recess. Sciatic Nerve Injury- Sciatic nerve is formed by lumbar spinal nerve 4 and 5 (L4 and L5) as well as sacral nerve 1, 2 and 3 (S1, S2 and S3). Partial leg pain up to thigh is caused by pinch or irritation of first or second lumbar spinal nerve. Femoral Nerve Injury- Femoral nerve injury is observed following penetrating injury of the front of the thigh.
Obturator Nerve Injury- Obturator nerve injury is rare and most of the injuries are observed following auto accident and sport injury.
Tibial Nerve Injury- Sciatic nerve become popliteal nerve near knee joint and lies behind the knee joint.
Common Peroneal Nerve Injury- Common peroneal nerve gives branch to knee joint and legs below the knee joint. Muscle Spasm- Muscle spasm of thigh, calf and foot muscles causes severe squeezing and shooting pain.
Segmental Pain- It is in lower leg mostly around hip, knee, ankle, foot and toes and is caused by tendon inflammation or injury. Tendon Pain- Most of the tendon pain is near joint and misdiagnosed as joint arthritis or joint sprain. Ligament Inflammation- Ligament inflammation is often observed following penetrating injury of the joint.

Ophthalmic nerve travels through the ceiling of the orbit and enters the face above the eye.
Mandibular nerve: mental branch travels along the inner side of the jawbone, enters the skin on the sides of the chin and innervates the skin of the jaw. Sensitivity of the BACK OF THE HEAD is mediated by the first three spinal nerves (cervical nerves C1-C3) . Sensitivity of the NECK and most of the EARLAP is provided by the superficial cervical plexus composed by cervical nerves C1-C4. Causes include: spinal disorders, like herniated disc, neurological diseases, like multiple sclerosis, vascular disorders, like atherosclerosis, infections, like meningitis, poisoning, epilepsy, tumors, injuries, metabolic changes, like hypokalemia, and other causes listed below. Tingling on the one side of the face, scalp or trunk, followed by a band of red patches and painful blisters that crust over and fall off in 2-3 weeks.
Post herpetic neuralgia is a complication of Herpes zoster reactivation, mostly seen in patients over 50 years of age. Circular red rash with a pale centre appearing few days or weeks after a tick bite (rash lasts few weeks). Months or years after the tick bite (there is no rash at that time), tingling, paralysis of facial muscles, vision disturbance, problems with memory, migratory joint pain (especially in knees) and heart problems can appear. Sudden severe shock-like (or mild) facial pain, lasting from few seconds to two minutes, triggered by tooth brushing, shaving, chewing, speaking, laughing, or even a slight breeze.
Trigeminal neuropathic pain can appear as a complication of trauma, dental procedure, surgery, or disease, like diabetes or stroke.
Pain in trigeminal deafferentation (interruption of sensory nerve fibers) results from nerve damage, usually during treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (alcohol injections, surgery).
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is, as believed, an autoimmune disease affecting the brain, brainstem or spinal cord.
Transverse myelitis and acute flares of multiple sclerosis are often treated with steroids. Ciguatera poisoning after eating big tropical fish, scombroid poisoning with spoiled fish, and paralytic shellfish poisoning can causetingling, skin rash and diarrhea.
Stroke is a damage of a part of the brain, occurring after a blockage or break of the brain artery due to atherosclerosis, thrombosis or rupture of an arterial aneurysm. In vertebrobasilar circulatory disorders, blood supply to the back of the brain, little brain (cerebellum), and brainstem is disrupted due to blocked basilar or vertebral arteries. Sharp or dull pain behind the breast-bone, triggered by effort, strong emotions, cold, heavy meal, or other stress; lasting from few moments to 10 minutes (up to 30 minutes in severe cases). Spinal cord injuries of the upper cervical (neck) spine (above the C4 level) may result in back of the head numbness. A tumor or abscess (collection of pus after infection) in the brain, orbit, ear, nose, paranasal sinuses, mouth, parotid glands, muscles or skin, skull, vertebra or spinal cord can directly press on the nerve tissue or infiltrate it, thus causing unusual sensations or pain in the face or back of the head. Substances, like serotonin, secreted by various tumors (especially lung cancer and carcinoid) can cause paresthesia in any body part.
Alcohol causes alcohol neuropathy (chronic paresthesia), but it can be directly toxic to nerves (acute paresthesia).
Other head related symptoms: pain, vision, hearing, smell, taste, temperature sense, or balance problems.

Its richa again, i am sorry i forgot to mention i regularly do yoga since i got bell palsy (right side of face).
Richa Tiwari, I’m not sure if herniated disc in the neck can be excluded as a cause of pain.
Richa Tiwari, large tonsils may be normal, but they could be caused by chronic tonsillitis – an ENT can make a diagnosis.
The problem occurs mostly when I have a cold, but that might obviously be because I blow my nose a lot more often at that time.
From the description of the nerves in the article, it definitely seems to be the maxillary nerve that is in cause.
Nick, an anatomical disorder, like a deviated septum, or a polyp or inflammation in the nose or maxillary sinus could result in increased pressure in the nose and sinus and cause symptoms you’ve described. Hi I wonder if you can advise me, I woke up one morning in January with numbness and pain on the right hand side of my face from my temple to my cheek, this was followed closely by pain on that side which was very uncomfortable.I woke up with large nayl discharge that first morning, like large tubes of mucus. David, as you probably know, symptoms in the ring fingers could arise from pinched spinal nerves due to bulging cervical discs. In 2004 I had two incidents happen, The first was a bike accident which severely jarred my neck. Atherosclerosis is a common complication of long term diabetes, especially when a diabetic has not been adequately managing their glucose levels.
I don’t think you should put so much credence into the aspartame lowering your blood pressure just yet. Don’t get too distracted with self-diagnosing as you can sometimes do more harm than good.
Anyway, since then, I’ve had my medication dosage sorted, but the entire left side of my body has been tingly and numb.
My psychiatrist is not interested in taking me off of Effexor, saying she’s never heard of this reaction to the medication. My symptoms have returned and I saw a new neurologist and he ordered another MRI and bloodwork. So, after having another MRI with normal results and further bloodwork done, I tested positive for Sjogrens Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder.
Is this something that would be best managed through a rheumatologist, my neurologist or my primary?
The TMJ or the Temporomandibular joing  is located just in front of the ear and is composed of the temporalis bone and the mandible.
The joint is subject to degenerative changes, the lower portion tends to be more vulnerable to these changes than the upper portion but the amount of degeneration is not found to relate to the amount of pain a patient reports.  The disc is subject to complicated movement and has several attachment sites within the joint.
We take a full patient history, to ascertain the exact symptom location, pain intensity ratings, symptom type, symptom behaviour and related areas of involvement in order to arrive at a diagnosis. Range of movement which involves active range-of-motion testing including mouth opening, right and left lateral deviation, and protrusion. Can involve arthritis, too much movement in the joint, too much compression within the joint or movement irregularities.
Associated with possible movement of the disc forwards or backwards which blocks jaw opening. We will check your posture and make recommendations – for example if you sit hunched over a lap top for hours, your jaw and neck muscles will tighten and cause reduced function in the TMJ.


We usually try to help to improve joint movements by gentle joint mobilisation and reducing muscle spasm. Trigger point dry needling (acupuncture specifically designed for muscle and joint pain) is very helpful when muscle tightness is diagnosed. Exercise programs specifically designed to address TMJ problems are not thought to be particularly helpful.
Nocturnal grinding of the teeth ( bruxism) is generally an unconscious action and can be helped by referring you to a dentist who deals with bruxism and they may recommend  a  splint made of clear plastic that fits over your lower teeth. We will examine your neck and treat that as necessary and also mobilise the disc in the TMJ to alleviate problems with opening or closing your mouth and to reduce pain or clicking when you open or close your mouth.
Surgery may be indicated for some patients, mainly when conservative treatments are not successful. If we cannot help you, we will refer you on to a TMJ specialist but our treatment is often very effective, no matter how long you have had the problem so it is worth consulting us first before trying the more invasive treatments. This entry was posted in Chiropractor Southampton and tagged bruxism, grinding, headaches, jaw, masseter, posture, stress, TMJ. Chiropractors at the Avenue Clinic can also help show you ‘How to Beat Back Pain For Ever’! At Physioclinic, our Physiotherapist will perform assessment and physical examination to determine the potential cause of the back problem, and will develop a management plan for your back pain. A risk factor is something that increases your chance of getting a disease, condition, or injury.
The doctor will ask about your symptoms, physical activity, and how the injury occurred, and will examine the injured area.
A shinbone fracture can take many weeks to heal, but more severe or open fractures may take even several months. The material on this web site is provided for educational purposes only, and is not to be used for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Cushing's syndrome (hypercortisolism) is a collection of symptoms caused by very high levels of a hormone called cortisol in the body. People taking high doses of corticosteroids long-term often have a build-up of cortisol in their blood. A less common cause of Cushing's syndrome is where a tumour (growth) develops inside one of the body's glands, causing it to produce an excessive amount of hormones.
Cushing's syndrome can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are similar to those of other more common conditions, such as an underactive thyroid gland and high blood pressure. Your GP will need to know whether you've been taking medication, and you'll probably need to have a urine test, blood test, or saliva test to measure the levels of cortisol in your body. The main treatment for iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome is to decrease or withdraw the use of corticosteroids.
Although treatment is effective, it can take some time to bring the symptoms under control – any time from a few weeks to a few years in some cases.
Left untreated, Cushing's syndrome can cause high blood pressure, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. If you have Cushing's syndrome, your clinical team will pass information about you on to the National Congenital Anomaly and Rare Diseases Registration Service (NCARDRS). With an account you can keep track of pages on the site and save them to this tab, which you can access on every page when you are logged in.
Pinch of third, fourth, fifth lumbar nerve and first sacral nerve causes severe acute stabbing pain in entire leg also known as sciatica.
Obturator nerve injury causes numbness over inner side of thigh and weakness in adduction (bringing leg together). Common peroneal nerve injury causes stabbing and sharp pain in knee joint and lower leg below knee joint. Lower leg segmental pain caused by ligament injury or disease is spread over hip, knee, ankle or joints over foot and toes. Twist of joint mostly ankle and knee causes over extension of flexion of the joint resulting in ligament dislocation or joint dislocation. Pseudogout is caused by calcium pyrophosphate deposit over synovial membrane, joint capsule and cartilages. Dislocation of any of the joint causes severe pain spread over the joint and referred to surrounding soft tissue.
Trauma or injuries are caused by sports accidents, domestic fall, car accidents and work injuries.
We have compiled a single source of information to help athletes understand more about the injury and how to prevent it.
The creators of this site are not medical professionals and do not claim to provide any medical advice. It innervates the front half of the top of the head, forehead, eyebrow, upper lid, the skin on the top of the nose, cornea, eye conjunctiva, and frontal sinuses. It innervates the skin on cheeks, upper lip, sides of the nose, lower eyelid, a part of mucosa in the nose, paranasal sinuses, upper gum, and upper teeth.
Auriculotemporal branch innervates the skin in the front of the earlap, and temporal region.
Dislocated jaw may cause pain or numbness in temporal and jaw area – temporomandibular (TMP) pain.
Actually, it seems to happen most often when I just got out of bed and blow my nose for the first time of the day.
I can’t give you an exact answer, but tingling and pain can arise from a teeth or inflammation around certain teeth pressing upon the nerve (mandibular or maxillary branch of the Trigeminal nerve), from sinusitis (?), nasal polyps, or anatomical abnormality in the mouth (possibly related to impacted tooth). I had a minor bladder surgery ten days ago under anesthesia with darvocet and a steroid to combat nausea and wa sent home with cipro. If symptoms are not worsening, you can wait a bit to see if they will go away on their own; if not you can ask the doctor.
Forgive my first email with so many words spelled incorrectly as I could only see half the screen. If it doesn’t seem to get better, you might want to visit an ENT, who can judge if some inflammation has occurred, which needs to be treated. Initially it started as chest pain (ECG clear)Chronic fatigue (Diabetes clear and B12) Night Sweats,Burning in ring fingers of both hands,mono-neuropathy in both feet worse if I eat sugar or carbs.Tingling in side of face, top of head,tip of nose, symptoms come and go and change all the time. I have constant facial tingling (just above left and right eye brows and forehead, and upper lip). The second was I got a red painless rash on my left arm which could be attributed to Lyme, I live in an active lyme area, in the UK. In all likelihood this is more likely to be associated with the restricted blood flow to the brain due to the fact that it is one sided and extending all the way to the legs. It is further complicated by the fact that you also have hypertension, another cause of atherosclerosis.
Rather speak to another doctor in person for confirmation that your current doctor’s approach is valid.
Numbness is not as prominent and long lasting with a heart attack (MI) as it is for cervical spondylitis. I won’t get into specifics about how it all happened, but it was an accident out of desperation to get back on my medication after not having it for a year, without tapering back onto it.
The back of my head, left side of my face, my whole mouth inside and out, my left arm and leg and parts of the left side of my torso are all tingly and less sensitive to the touch than the right side. MS would be a reasonable consideration given your history but this has been ruled out by the neurologist.
The muscles of chewing are the primary muscles associated with the TMJ and include the lateral pterygoid, geniohyoid, mylohyoid and digastric muscles.
The joint is known as a hinge and sliding joint  but also utilizes spinning and compression movements. Progression to severe pain and recovery from frequent symptoms are equally rare in the majority of cases. We mobilise in all of the movement directions of the TMJ but avoid this if you are showing signs of too much movement (hypermobility). Splints are designed to be worn at night to limit nocturnal bruxism and minimize muscle contraction. Your doctor will order more x-rays while the bone heals to ensure that the bones have not shifted position.
Corticosteroids are widely used to reduce inflammation and treat autoimmune conditions (where the immune system malfunctions and attacks healthy tissue). If surgery is unsuccessful or it's not possible to remove the tumour safely, medication can be used to counter the effects of the high cortisol levels.
Pain is associated with tingling, numbness, weakness, bladder (urine) and bowel (stool) incontinence (leakage). Pinch or irritation of Lumbar 3,4 5 and sacral 1 nerve causes pain in entire leg and weakness in leg. Sciatica is also a term used for leg pain caused by selective nerve lesioning of nerve L4, L5 and S1.
Pain is associated with tingling, numbness and weakness over anterior skin of thigh and knee joint. Increased secretion of synovial fluid and increased thickening of synovium, capsule and cartilages causes swelling of the joint.
Like said, a neurologist can say, if any other neurological investigation would reveal, if you have pinched nerves in the neck or not.


I went to the doctor 7 days ago because I thought I just had a bad ear infection but he said something about bells palsy and put me on both and antibiotic and a steroid. There is a constant pain behind both eyes that gets worse in sunight and artificial lighting.
Relatively often, I hear that pressure-releasing sound from my nose right after blowing it, and then I don’t get any numbness. This has been happening irregularly for about two years, and I had never had anything similar occur before that. So I would guess that somehow blowing my nose sometimes creates a pressure on this nerve resulting in my symptoms. The lipoma issue may also be relevant but right now the focus should be on preventing a blood clot from forming which can be done with aspirin. Ideally you should see a neurologist at this point so that further assessments can be done but if your doctor does not feel it necessary then don’t rush the issue just yet.
In an MI there is pain that comes on suddenly although the head, face and upper back are not commonly affected. When I first wake up, it’s really intense, like the sensation of old fashioned TV static, but it never fully goes away. Because of this, my primary care doctor has referred me to neurology and I’ll be going in next week. The other investigations that you had would show if blood flow is compromised to the brain which would cause some of the symptoms you are experiencing. Sjogren’s is one of the most common rheumatological conditions although it is widely heard of. There is great variability in the shape of the two halves of the joint, which add to the difficulty in treating this area. The right and left joints act together to move the lower mandible relative to the maxilla, temporal bone and cranium.
You can also grind your teeth while you are awake, when bruxism is consciously performed, for example when concentrating on something or when you get angry or stressed. When there is increased pressure on the nerves, nerve will be inflammed and causing back pain. Do not return to sports until your leg is fully healed and leg muscle strength is back to normal.
Muscle contraction follows spasm of muscles and displacement of muscles from original position. Joint dislocation associated with nerve injury causes spread of pain over entire leg because of nerve injury and partial over the joint because of dislocation.
I finished both medications and the tingling is mostly gone but am having some numbness on the right side of my face to my chin and above my ear and my ears feel plugged. You can wait for some days to see if symptoms are lessening – in this case they will probably go away completely in a due time. I had a very long day at work and became tired and felt the tingling crepping feeling come back again.
I also got badly scratched on my arm by a neighbours cat, (bartonella?) although I do not rememeber specifically getting bitten by a deer tick. As said in the previous reply, don’t put too much of weight into claims that aspartame lowers you blood pressure or has other health benefits. I have a friend who was diagnosed with guillan barre syndrome and she has some similar symptoms.
On mouth opening, a combination of rotation and movement forwards occurs and on mouth closing rotation and movement backwards should occur.
Fall or sport injury also causes sciatic nerve injury resulting in leg pain or sciatica pain with tingling, numbness and weakness. If force is not severe to cause dislocation then joint twist may result in ligament dislocation.
Deviation of the toes inward is observed secondary to ligamental dislocation or joint subluxation. Fracture of femur, tibia or fibula near knee joint causes popliteal nerve injury, which results in numbness and weakness of lower leg below knee joint. Delayed medical or surgical treatment can cause permanent tissue damage resulting from gangrene.
I saw three dentists in total and had my top wisdom tooth removed, along with three root canals on the top right hand side.
Drugs may have their side effects (which could be your symptoms), so in attempt to find a cause you can ask the doctor which drugs are still necessary and which not. I took tylenol sinus and did a nasal sinus wash , but squeezed way to hard and then sucked it up only ot feel like my nose was hit with a fire hose stream with saline. When you are looking at numbness in these areas (head, face, upper back) due to a cardiovascular cause then you may instead be looking at something like a stroke rather than a heart attack. Then, last year (2014) I was working out with a personal trainer on the weight bench and pushed up with the bar and it was very painful in my right arm near armpit area.
Given your age it is advisable that you consult with a cardiologist just to ensure that there is no underlying cardiovascular condition. Fracture of tibia or fibula near ankle joint causes injury of posterior tibial nerve or common peroneal nerve. Symptoms from brain tumor, stroke or multiple sclerosis, for example, would not likely lessen after the medications you’ve got. I have been tested for tick borne illnesses because I am around them for school and they often get attached. The wisdom tooth extraction on the last visit rid me of the pain, but since then I have had to a less or greater extent the pins and needles sometimes across both cheeks, and across my nose. Symptoms never constant, I’m really really curious and frustrated at what is going on with my health, 46 year old man, slight BMI issue through lack of exercise due to conditions, never smoked and no cannot tolerate alcohol.
How did the symptoms start in 2004 – suddenly or slowly, and can you recall any circumstances? The feet specifically burn after excess sugar or carbs and I tend to have enforced sleep too. During the night & waking up seems to be the worst, as well as days i dont get much sleep, however it came be at any time, for no reason.
The very next day I began with numbness on my right side (arm, face, leg) It lasted for a week or so. Later, pain becomes neuropathic and character of chronic pain becomes burning at rest and burning stabbing pain with activities.
Nerve injury associated with bones around ankle joint causes numbness and weakness of foot. This is not to say that aspartame is bad but too much of even a good thing can have deleterious effects. Both an MI and stroke are acute in nature (most of the time) so the symptoms will develop over a short period of time. It is also advisable to follow up with an opthamologist (eye specialist) to exclude certain eye conditions. I had had ear fullness for months upto that point and had been very feverish under any movement. Dizziness and breathlessness are some of the symptoms you would also be looking at, and sudden profuse perspiration with an MI. It really is difficult to say what this could be given that you have undergone so many tests and everything is clear thus far.
The removal of the tooth seemed to make the ear fullness disapear pretty much after the removal. Thank you for your reply, your help is much appreciated Regards David Were other vitamins, except vit B12, and mineral levels also tested?
As you have mentioned there is no infection but this does not exclude the possibility of a neuralgia among the other conditions. Another consideration would be anemia and perimenopause although your doctors would have considered this. My doctor has pescribed me amytriptyline 20mg which I have been taking the last ten months, but am not sure if they are making any difference as in the last week the symptoms are back as bad as nearly at the begining, tingling creeping burning(withou the pain).
How did the symptoms start in 2004 – suddenly or slowly, and can you recall any circumstances?
When I finally DO fall asleep, when I wake up I’m still so exhausted that I can barely get out of bed. However, your neurologist has both the knowledge and first hand experience with your case to assist you further. Well, every several months I have this numbness on my right side and it’s coupled with a dizzy, foggy, almost drunk feeling and right eye pressure. Stress can definitely cause many of the symptoms you are experiencing but it is always advisable for first exclude some of the conditions mentioned above.
