There's a lot of things that it could be, but only your doctor can tell you for sure. The trigeminal nerve may be irritated or pinched if you have been doing anything that strained your neck. Stinging on one side could be an early symptom of shingles - if you ever had chicken pox. It could be caused by a bad tooth. Basically, the symptom alone is not enough to make any kind of realistic suggestion, your doctor should examine you and correlate objective findings to subjective complaints. I hope it just goes away, but if it doesn't, call your doctor.

That is what I said the tooth is what I was thinking but as Rollo1 and I both said go to see a doc to be on the safe side.

I have no idea what this might be, but it doesn't sound like anything you'd want to sit on for too long. It seems like it might be a good time to pay your doctor a visit and find out for sure what is going on. Good luck and I hope you feel better!

WEll I am not doctor at all but it could be a few things from what I am getting from your description. First do you have any bad teeth, what I mean is cavities or caps or wisdom teeth. I do and that descirbes how I feel sometimes. Also do you have sinus problems? That could be the starting of a headache or sinus trouble. In doubt you should really go and see a doc I am not one and I really have no way of knowing. I hope this helps and take care happy mylotting as well.
