I've had facial numbness everyday for 10 months. B12 is not helping.

Went to the doctor because symptoms seem to be getting worse again since this first started. Along with face/throat numbness/tingling I've had fatigue, leg cramps and restless leg type feelings, fluttering feeling in my chest, headaches, a weird eye thing that has happened more frequently in the last month. The doctor is doing blood work again to check b12 and autoimmune , but mentioned MS as a possibility. Since I really didn't know anything about it until I looked it up this weekend I blew it off. Neuro exam at the beginning was a waste of time as the neuro didn't seem to think facial numbness is not an ordinary thing for everyone-sorry for the sarcasm . Is it pernicious anemia, MS, something else? The doctor just says I'm a challenge .
