Weird feeling for a few days, like a cobweb is on my right side of face from my eye over my nose..

almost like there are hairs hanging down and moving gently around. Not painful but really annoying, it even woke me up and I thought something was crawling on me. What can this be?

You can get floaters in the eye that cause this. Best to get your eyes checked. My father in law had this.

Thank you for replying, I didn't know it could be eye related.

Optom here, it could be quite serious, possibly even a retinal detachment, although its more likely to be a PVD which is a posterior vitreous detachment.
You need to go and have an eye examination first thing tomorrow morning, or if you aren't able to get an appointment go straight to the nearest casualty unit.

Is this an eyesight problem of a feeling on the skin of your face?

It's on the skin surface. Worse on my nose, feels like there's definitely something on it, but there is nothing at all to see

I get this sometimes too. Don't know what it is though so not much help I'm afraid. The tip of my nose sometimes goes a bit numbish when it happens

no solutions, just saying I get that sometimes too - I have always put it down to lurking cobwebs, those long ones that hang from the (unswept) ceiling!
