Face tingling

Postby 6611160 » Fri Feb 17, 2012 11:58 am

Has anybody ever had the sensation of parts of their face feeling slightly numb / tingling, much like when it's almost fully come back to life after a visit to the dentist? It's not completely numb but feels slightly desensitised and very mildly tingly, but I don't think it's right... :-?

Hi there, I have suffered from numerous facial issues over the past year,i get a lot of numbness, constant muscle twitches ,pain in jaw and have twice had a complete droop on the right side like bells palsy.
I've seen neurologist ( awfull man!!:-x)
Apparently it's just "one of those things" ?????
These problems seem to come and go at the moment my face is fine:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:
Have you spoken to your gp about it? It's always best to get things checked out!! Xxx

Hi,

I had exactly the same thing which started in February last year. It worried me somewhat though I had ruled out a stroke as there was no drooping etc. It took several months befor the numbness/tingling went away.

I went to see my GP who checked me over and then she refered me to a Neurologist. Had MRI and lumbar punch to rule out MS or a tumour :yikes:

This was the start of my Fibro journey and I was 'officialy diagnosed by my Reumy last month, although my GP and Neurologist had sort of diagnosed FMS CFS in May.

Best to see your GP though

Same as motherelephant every now and again but no obvious signs of anything wrong so FM I suppose :dunno:

Hi diffly,
I can't believe I have finally found someone who gets the droop aswell!!! Wasn't sure if it was fibro related but now think it must be!!
The first time it happend it lasted months and I was so self conscious,i have grown my hair to hide behind!!
Since then I haven't had it as bad or for as long but my muscles on affected side are still weaker.
Have you recovered fully?

I get this a lot & it's horrible!

I find it's often accompanied by a tingling scalp too, I say tingling but sometimes it feels more like my skin's crawling, most uncomfortable it is too, even makes me shudder just thinking about it!

Hi diffly,
Mine is worse some days than other also, i have been doing facial exercises that i saw originaly on this morning,they are for wrinkles but at least i feel im trying something!

I dread looking in mirror in the morning ! But i guess we just get on with it don't we!

Hope you are well hun xxx

Me too! Left eyelid droops and left side of mouth is a bit droopy too, and I have a tic occasionally....also on left side above my lip, my left eye is my "good" one as I can barely see out of the right one, so its more of a pain than it would have been if it had happened on the right side.
The tingling crawling sensation in the scalp makes me rush for a nit comb sometimes, esp if I have been with the Grandkids! I have mentioned it to my doc, and he has said its "one of those things" :facepalm: (hey, this smiley is more apt than usual)
I`m not over the hill I`m still climbing it, thats why I`m so tired all the time

Hi All, does anyone's face tingling feel almost like a burn? I woke up this morning with the whole left side of my face and scalp tingling and burning, my eyes are all puffy and sore too. It's been here all day and seems to be on the inside as well as the outside and even down the left side of my throat. I just put everything down to FM these days... and I guess that could be a problem if it turns out it isn't - sometimes I think I'm just going crazy :crazy:
