Today, I was driving and my eyesight started to go sort of blurry. I couldn't focus on any signs,
I figured it was because I was driving into the sun. It cleared up after I got inside.
Then about 30 min later, my left hand went completely dumb. I took my rings off because it felt as though it was swelling.
I was doing dishes so I don't think it just fell asleep. While this was happening, the lower left side of my face went dumb.
It felt like I had been to the dentist and had freezing in it. It only lasted about 5 min, but after my jaw hurt and it still feels weird
(it's been about 2 hours). Should I be concerned? This has never happened before.
Thank you

  • I just posted similar symptoms. When I was driving I noticed my right eye was blurry. Around the same time I noticed my right lip felt mildly paralyzed or as you put it, like after a dentist visit. Now my right eye has a tic as well.
    I hope you are still "out there" somewhere. I would be interested in your experience and if you were able to find out what caused these symptoms.
    Thank you!
