several months ago i began to get short period of numbness on on the right side of my face. at the begining, they lasted between several hours and half a day. later I experienced a longer period of numbness that included for a other symptoms as well. it lasted for about 10 days during which i had hard time concentrating on anything, my right face was a bit numb and it began to feel as if it was crawling thru my veins starting from bellow the ear heading towards my temple and then towards the corner of my lip. it felt as thrubing pulsation that was moving. towards the end, i experienced other strange symptoms as well but then it calmed down. the numbness remained a bit but generally calmed down. i went to a genaral doctor who said that she couldnt diagnose anything and directed my to a neural doctor. the neural doctor in turn did basic physical exams testing my motor ability, precision and so forth. then she deduced that nothing was wrong and to spend more time in the gym. the symptoms continued and began to increase. so i went to another doctor. this time the doctor as well was not able to diagnose anything, my blood was tested for inflamation, cholesterol, hemogloebin and all were "good". now during the past two weeks the symptoms have increased, its as if the veins are alive and throbbing and i feel pressure on my temple all the time. the same area of my face that is numb has began to feel a burning sensation as if having just excersized and a tingling on my temple and arround the corner of my lips. im drowsy and tired all the time and feel best right after i wake up. that is about the only time of day when i get a couple of hours of freedom from these symptoms. today i got even a weirder symptom, at work i got a bit stressed and all of a sudden, i got a blushing burning sensation that occurs to everyone but this time it only occured on the right side of my face, my right ear was burning red and warm and i blushed more on the right, while on the left side my ear was cool and nomral and i blushed less. right now im waiting for an apointment with another neurologist, it could be weeks before i get one. it yet remains a different issue as what and when i could get more tests done, a CT scan might be done after 6-8months from the doctors order. so my questions are:
1- any idea what could be wrong? ive heard refferences to the third facial nerve and other things but they have only been general public speculations.
2- if it is something more serious, would i benefit of having the ct scans and other exams now or wait half a year for them?
3- any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.
