Tingling/numbess above ear right side

Tingling/Numbness above my right ear feels as though its happening inside my head. No ear symptoms. A few months ago i had pain in right side of face when opening/closing/talking or eating. I noticed the pain started in the morning and lasted for a few days then went away. This tingling sensation now? are they connected? should i be worried? Let me restate that i am already worried.

thanks,

I have TMJ jaw problems. Likely associated is my unexplained constant tinnitus. I have found it hard to swallow and have constant headaches like a band of pressure just above the ears and circling the head. I have auras with these headaches so they must be migraines as they come right after. Also dizziness and swaying balance are part of my life. Concerning me more at this point is the pain above the left eye and pressing the eyebrows and bone produce pain as well as pain always above and at the side of the left ear (side of head). often when I move my head down at times. With all this and my osteoarthritic degenerative vertebrae in the neck I feel difficulty in coping quite often. I would like to see if these problems are present with others with TMJ. Perhaps this might help me to cope better.

I have long lasting violent dizziness at times. IM SICK OF IT. Seem to be muscle spasm and trigger point related. My bite is screwed up. Jaw is constantly in spasm.
Not sure if trigger pt therapy would help you since you have vertebrae problems but your description does seem to indicate you do have trigger points. Talk to a spinal specialist about safety of trigger pt therapy for someone in your situation.

Follow ahbc700's advise. If ENT comes up w/ nothing, you may try trigger point therapy.
