Question unclear: If you are in the process of undergoing a detailed evaluation your doctors have far more data than you can provide here. Herpes of the geniculate ganglion, Lyme disease, sarcoidosis and other entities must be considered, but HealthTap is not the place for individual diagnoses to be made. Good luck and best wishes.
