What would cause sudden numbness in my face , lips and right arm ? And still am having it and it's been more than a week

What would cause sudden numbness in my face , lips and right arm ? And  still am having it and it's been more than a week

Not so sudden: If it is one event, then it's not so sudden but now subacute. Or if you are talking about recurrent episodes over several days, then most likely transient cerebral ischemic attacks may be occurring or perhaps sensory seizures. If those symptoms are constant, even if intensity is variable, then a small stroke is likely. This needs neurologic attention soon--like today! ...Read more

I got a face injury, 3 days ago where my friend elbowed me in the face and i feel numbness in my nostril, face, lip and top teeth will i heal?

Facial Injury: A blow to the face just below the eye causes some damage to the infraorbital nerve, which gives sensation to the upper lip, upper teeth, face, and nostril on the injured side. The crush injury rarely causes permanent numbness, and recovery of function is the rule, although it takes time. In the meantime, be careful with hot liquids and foods on that side. ...Read more

Hi i wake up in a morning with head pains and numbness in face what can this be?

Not sure: It could be allergies that mediate a sinus congestion, and over night, your sinuses are getting clogged and congested, causing early morning pains and numbness. An antihistamine/allergy medication or inhaled corticosteroid nasal spray may help. This is a guess over the computer, so it's best to see a dr. For an eval, best wishes. ...Read more

Drink plenty of fluids and take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for the aches. This should improve in a few days. Do not drive if you are dizzy at all. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

My TSH was 13.090 yesterday.  Endocrinologist can't see me til 21st. migraines for weeks top of head tingling with numbness in face. What to do?

Alternatively, your doc could go ahead and get you started on l-thyroxine (it doesn't require an endocrinologist). Either way, your hypothyroidism is not related to migraines or numbness in face. Good luck! ...Read more
