I am 27 years old and have been experiencing pain for almost a year. I have developed anxiety and at times lead to panic attacks. My doctor put me on Sertraline 25 mg. I took it once and never again. After this, I experienced weird symptoms with my head. I feel an electric shock like zap on the right side of my head, sometimes, rarely on the left and constant nerve pain on the right side of my head in one spot. I have the sensation like something is stuck in there and I cannot get it out as it is weird. The pain on the right side of my head started when I was driving home from work and my inner ear became really hot for some apparent reason and it has been going on for a year. Sometimes, it feels like my nerve is sizzling or hardening and the pain is worse with stress. Sometimes, I feel the pain in my upper gums, pressure on the bridge of my nose and above my eyebrow gets numb. I have had a normal brain MRI and now I am waiting for an appointment with a neurologist. What is your opinion?

Thank you doctor,
I put two blue dots and the green line to the best of my ability to show you where the pain is. I would also like to note that this pain causes headaches and tender spots on my head like a bruised feeling on different places of my head. So, if this could be a lesion, then how did I get this? Will it enlarge? Also, the gum pain comes and goes along with the forehead pressure, which is mild. But, the nerve pain is always there in my head. I was thinking of getting the steroid shot that numbs the pain.
