Examinations: Have you been examined by a physician and dentist recently for these symptoms? You need a complete physical and tests to rule out any conditions that can be causing the blurry vision, chronic migraines, and numbness. Please call at once.

Eagle's syndrome: This type of pain may be caused by glossopharyngeal neuritis and/or elongation or calcification of the styloid ligament commonly referred to as Eagle's syndrome. In a true Eagle's syndrome, intraoral palpation of the styloid process through the tonsillar fossa will precipitate an attack of pain. Rec.: see a dentist for PAN x-ray and evaluation, or ENT or orofacial pain specialist.
