Call your doctor for his/her opinion on whether or not to stop the antibiotic and if he/she wants to replace it with another for whatever you're being treated for. ...Read more

Sensory : Sensory symptoms affecting the face and upper limb can be caused by problems affecting one of several parts of the central nervous system (brain, brainstem and spinal cord).

The range of possible explanations for a syndrome of numbness of one side of the face, one upper limb, and nausea includes migraine and stroke. Determining which of the many possibilities is correct requires a more detailed story, an examination, and possibly testing. New symptoms, or symptoms that don't get better, is a good reason to get checked out by a doctor. ...Read more
