Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum...

I've been suffering with what i think is anxiety for a while but I wanted to know if anybody has experienced the following symptoms?

Tingling almost like I've put vapour rub on side of face on one side / Pressure in one side of temple

Ear fullness

I'm not tired but I have really heavy eyes

Thanks for your help

Can't say I've felt that during feelings of anxiety cept maybe the heavy eye thing but apparently tingling and numbness of the face can be quit common with anxiety. Spoken to your Doctor about it?

Perhaps they didn't think it was bad enough to warrent anything. Have you tried maybe getting in contact with MIND? they're pretty good in the UK and can self refer yourself.

I’ve had the ear fullness and tingling and temple pain. Tension headaches can cause those sensations and pretty sure those are anxiety induced. It can do crazy things to your body 😩

I’ve hand the tingling in my face occasionally, as well as heavy eyes, but that’s because I don’t sleep. I nearly dozed off in the car the other day, (I wasn’t the one driving). I’m just wondering what is meant by ear fullness? Does it affect your hearing?

I think the ear fullness is caused from clenching your teeth, at least that’s what my Dr said mine was from.

The tingling and numbness of the face can be caused by hyperventilation. As you get more anxious, your heart rate increases, this makes your breathing increase, which can cause your blood to become over-oxygenated.
