Feeling numbness on the right side of my face and head and having calf discomfort. What could be wrong?

See a neurologist: The 2 symptoms are separate. Calf discomfort and numbness in the head are not related. If the numbness is intermittent and if you also have history of headaches then migraines could be the cause of numbness. ...Read more

I'm 19 years old and am experiencing numbness on the right side of my face. I dI'd cocaine this past weekend. It is now Tuesday and hasn't gone away.

Cocaine is an anesth: Etic. And you are complaining that your face is partly anesthetized! Come on now. Be realistic. The effect will wear off and the sensation will return soon enough. Cocaine had been used as an intranasal anesthetic for some time until its very addictive properties were realized. Some of the most prominent doctors utilized it to keep awake for long periods including Halstead and Freud, Yes that on ...Read more

I am experiencing numbness on the right side of my face. It does this everytime I have a piece of candy or refined sugar.?

I am experiencing numbness on the right side of my face. It does this everytime I have a piece of candy or refined sugar.?

Unclear: Sometimes people can have reactions to certain foods or drinks and get a tingly or even numb sensation around the mouth. I've never heard of it happening just on one side of the face. Since it only happens each time you sugar or candy, it's probably not dangerous, but you may want to get a neurologists opinion and see if they can offer any insight. ...Read more

Hi. I have numbness on the right side of the face since last three days. Docs say it can be a nerve problem or we have to visit a ent doctor. Is it ok??

See neurologist also: Numbness in the face is a symptom of Trigeminal Neuropathy. The trigeminal nerve is the main sensory nerve of the face. The list of conditions that can cause numbness is large. It's very important to have a careful evaluation by a neurologist as well as an ENT specialist, unless ENT comes up with the cause. ...Read more

2 years ago I experienced numbness on the right side of my face and arm. I had a brain scan n it showed a lot of scarring is this ms?

Ask treating doctor: This would depend on exactly what the doctor was calling scarring ms has fairly characteristic findings on MRI that I wouldn't describe as scarring and should have prompted further evaluation without your scan I have no way of telling exactly what it meant. You need a neurology follow up and ask lots of questions. ...Read more

My right eye has been twitching continuously for the past four months, I also have a slight facial numbness on the right side of my face.

My right eye has been twitching continuously for the past four months, I also have a slight facial numbness on the right side of my face.

See Neurologist: Twitching of an eyelid is not rare and results from spontaneous firing off of a twig (branch) of the facial nerve (viith cranial nerve). However, numbness of the face, if it is truly present, is the result of lack of innervation of the trigeminal nerve (vth cranial nerve). Inasmuch as these nerves arise from the brain, I would consult a neurologist for an appropriate diagnosis. ...Read more

I have numbness down right side of face and head. Did I sleep wrong or something happened to my nerve?

I have numbness down right side of face and head. Did I sleep wrong or something happened to my nerve?

Depends: If the numbness doesn't last very long then it might be caused by pressure on the nerve while sleeping. If this lasts longer than a few minutes then it could be something much more serious and it should be carefully evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Ii have had chest pain and numbness on right side of face the numbness is gone now im on flecinine

Ii have had chest pain and numbness on right side of face the numbness is gone now im on flecinine

Hello.: Hello. I am sorry I didn't see your question earlier. I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. I recommend that you be seen asap. ...Read more

Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. What can be causing this? I felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. What can be causing this? I felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Need to see Dr.: You are young, so this is reassuring. However, when your face is involved, it suggests that you are having something happening in your brain, not in your neck as could cause just arm tingling. Ever had migraines? Sometimes you can have other migraine symptoms without pain. The worrisome concern would be a stroke or other spot in the brain. You need to have an exam and maybe a brain scan. ...Read more

Pain in glands under my jaw after drinking alcohol. Strong radiating pain in right arm. Slight numbness on right side from face to waist. Ms pain?

Pain in glands under my jaw after drinking alcohol. Strong radiating pain in right arm. Slight numbness on right side from face to waist. Ms pain?

DO YOU HAVE MS?: Not clear what is going on with you, but the arm pain and numbness could indicate peripheral nerve problems from neck or shoulder, and the extensive numbness might suggest spinal cord compression in neck. Although pain very frequent in ms, your description suggests a different etiology. See you doctor and explore causation. ...Read more

Pain in glands under my jaw after drinking alcohol. Strong radiating pain in right arm. Slight numbness on right side from face to waist. Ms pain?

Don't drink alcohol!: You already have a condition which has adverse effects on your nervous system, and you are adding a drug which has very well-known adverse effects on the nervous system as well. Talk to your neurologist. Alcohol should not be a regular part of your life. While an occasional drink may not cause any problems, multiple drinks or more regular drinking certainly CAN. ...Read more

What is causing numbness on the right side of the face and inflammation and pain on of left side of neck with raised jugular veins? Also have PVCs

What is causing numbness on the right side of the face and inflammation and pain on of left side of neck with raised jugular veins? Also have PVCs

May not be related: Numbness to the face is supplied by cranial nerves that exit the brain directly into the face while PVCs are a cardiac condition which can be a sign an arrhythmia. Numbness of the face that goes away is generally not problematic because if you're having spasms in the neck or face it can sometimes feel like numbness but it's not actually numbness. If this persists you should consider evaluation by A neurologist ...Read more
