Though there are other things that could cause numbness tingling, such as atypical migraine or neuralgia/ facial nerve paralysis. Please check with your healthcare provider and get the help you need, but be calm and don't worry as much. ...Read more

Numbness: I'm sorry that you are having all of these symptoms. You obviously have been to see someone in order to get a CT scan. Do you have a headache as well.
