A couple years ago I went to the hospital with tingling on half of my head-- they said I had an infection in my trigeminal nerve and told me to take advil. It got better-- but it always came along with the headaches I get that are associated with TMJ disorder.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I had a terrible migraine (I do not usually get them) and it was accompanied by this tingly numbness, but worse-- and mostly on my right side. I went to the hospital and they gave me a CT scan. That showed nothing, but they saw some "blip" near my neck, but it was right on the edge of the scan, so they suggested I get an MRI if I have any more symptoms.
Well the past couple days I've been number. My face (around my nose and mouth) and into my shoulders and all the way down my arms. And sometimes my feet a little. I think it is worse when I'm sitting. I've been to PT for my TMJ disorder, and I have a bite plate, so I feel like that is under control. I also have a great computer chair, good posture etc.
The numbness is freaking me out. Of course someone I work with was like "oh that sounds like MS" and that scared me. I'm 30 and really feel great other than this numbness.
