My uncle is having numbness in one side of his face. It is on one side and at first it would come and go. He's had up to 12 of these in one day. Lately he has been having numbness all day. His doctors have claimed they are vascular migraines and put him on high blood pressure meds, potassium meds (his potassium was low), and anti-convulsant (seizure) medication. However, it has not helped and his symptoms seem to be getting worse. They have done many tests. Please help!
