For about a year I have had facial numbness and tingling, it started on my forehead on the right side and now the right side of my face is numb although there is no pain, it feels like a pressure or popping sensation sometimes but when I had a CT scan and saw a neurologist he said it was stress, they thought it might be sinuses but it wasn't, my vision has deteriorated also in the past year, I am a 35 year old male.

  • For about a year I have had facial numbness and tingling, it started on my forehead on the right side and now the right side of my face is numb although there is no pain, it feels like a pressure or popping sensation sometimes but when I had a CT scan and saw a neurologist he said it was stress, they thought it might be sinuses but it wasn't, my vision has deteriorated also in the past year, I am a 35 year old male.I am a 42 year old female who has had something similar to this and have only been given the same dx - stress! I have a bubbling/tingling sensation in both cheeks, starts under the chin line and "bubbles" up to the top of my cheeks. I also experience this feeling in the area of tissue from your thumb and first finger (on the hand) and the tops of my thighs. If anyone has any other ideas I would appreciate them! My eyesight is fine and I have had an mri that turned out normal. I do experience some feelings of being uncoordinated at times, but nothing serious. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, endometriosis, GERD, and possibly fibro but I have never pushed this issue with my doc as I want to try to handle it on my own.
