Have you seen a neurologist? Your facial numbness is most likely a "sensory trigeminal neuralgia" and maybe a consequence of a prior viral infection. So far, in no way do you describe MS, but why do you think this could be? Suggest you proceed next with a virtual consult here at HT (www.connect@healthtap.com).
