Cheek Excise Numbness Pain Tactile
Sir last 3 days in my center left head i feel little bit numbness, but no pain, no headache .... if i will touch means i will can feel but not like a other place of head, plzz?
It sounds to me: like you are trying to describe a loss, not total, or change of sensation when you touch your head/scalp. This would typically result if there was injury (cut, laceration) that impacted the nerve supplying this area. Perhaps that area of your scalp is especially sensitive to a hair product/shampoo, etc. Change to a non-irritating shampoo, watch and wait. If symptoms intensify or expand, see Doc! ...Read more
Lead is found in: * House paint before 1978. Even if the paint is not peeling, it can be a problem. Lead paint is very dangerous when it is being stripped or sanded. These actions release fine lead dust into the air. Infants and children living in pre-1960's housing (when paint often contained lead) have the highest risk of lead poisoning. Small children often swallow paint chips or ...Read more
Bumped my head mildly a month ago, back right hand side. It is still sensitive to touch and have a feeling of numbness. I do suffer from anxiety? Could it be related
Give it 2 wks: The bump may last another 2 weeks . Meanwhile, stop rubbing it since it will just perpetuate the tenderness. If you do no have symptoms such as new headaches, lightheadedness, or vomiting, you are likely ok. But if any of these symptoms appears and keeps on getting worse, better consult your doctor. All things considered, you will likely be ok. ...Read more
Since Thursday (3 days ago), I have intermittent numbness over my whole body. predominantly legs, pelvic area and head. Similar to limbs falling asleep. I can still feel touch and move normally, but the sensation is very removed?
Not numb: This may be more of a tingling or pins and needles sensation, and since it's generalized I would investigate the possibility of toxicity or deficiencies of calcium, magnesium or a type of peripheral neuropathy. Hyperventilating or panic disorder is also a cause of such symptoms. Discuss this with your physician so evaluation and ordering of appropriate tests can be done. ...Read more
Dual mechanism: Tramadol is an analgesic which in addition weakly inhibits norepinephrine/serotonin reuptake.

I have woken up with a swollen left cheek. My lips are numb and the gun area on the inside is sensitive to the touch.
Go to Urgent Care: Symptoms such as this should be evaluated promptly. I wonder 'what' might have happened to you yesterday that could possibly affect that side? I wonder too if you've been under significant stress. One of my considerations would be early shingles- so for that reason I would want you to be seen. If it is shingles, you can get antiviral treatment to stop it. There are of course other causes so see MD ...Read more

Half of face hot 2 touch & numb around temple chin & cheek ER catscan says no stroke. Worried what could it be? Does everything neuro show on catscan?
Hard to say: The 5th cranial nerve is responsible for sensation to the half of the face. Irritation of this nerve may occur and can cause some of your symptoms. You may consider an MRI scan to better visualize the region of this nerve. You may also consult a neurologist to see if there are other associated nerves involved-this would be helpful in pinpoint the site of the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3 days ago low right lip had a numb feeling. Could feel touch/move it. Like skin is tight, now cheek too. I have anxiety/teeth clencher. Maybe that?
Over the past week I’ve been having this sensation on my lower cheek near the jawline intermittently. I can’t say it’s numbness but it feels like something touching it. It can happen several times a day and last for less than 5 seconds each time. ?
Nerve: In my experience recurrent sensations like that, if they involve only a tiny territory of the face, are not indicative of significant pathology but are most likely caused by some irritability of a superficial facial nerve and eventually resolve. Larger patches of recurrent numbness, especially with other body parts on the same or other side require investigation preferably by a neurologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cranial nerves: Focal numbness over the face involves the trigeminal nerve, and/or its divisions and branches. Assuming you have developed a sensory neuropathy, cause could be due to dental or sinus problem, but some cases are due to a viral inflammation. Ear, nose, and throat doctor, or a dentist might uncover the cause. ...Read more
I woke up today with on and off numbness on my left cheek. Can you tell me why would that be happening?
Cheek numbness: The first order of business is an exam by a physician. On and off numbness can be an early sign of many things, some which are serious, some not. Multiple sclerosis often presents with "odd" sensory findings, or there may be pressure somewhere on the trigeminal nerve which ends up in your face. There are also tooth and jaw related things, less serious, but still requiring a complete exam. ...Read more

Comments: The anatomy involves trigeminal nerve, but the cause may be complex. There is a sensory trigeminal neuropathy which could do this, but one might consider problems in jaw or mouth as a provocateur. Some intracranial situations should be excluded via MRI. A neurologist or a dentist could be a starting point. ...Read more
