I'm having facial numbness, in a very specific area of my face and head. It feels like there is a weight at right above my right temple. When I squeez and press on the temple itself, there is muscular pain all over. The pressure seeps down to my cheek, but only specific parts of my cheek along with severe jerking when I'm startled-there is seldom any pain but I do have a load of anxiety, hence I took a xanax, the pressure died down, but I could still feel it-excedrine migraine doesn't work to well and I'm getting twitches all over my right side of the body along with diziness.

Had an MRI a year and a half ago, nothing found-recently was diagnosed with cat scratch disease, but that's minimal compared to these symptoms that I've had for a while.

Please explain to me what this is, it feels like the right side of my face is about to droop, but I always check the mirror and everything is fine.


I'm 20 years old and this is honestly ruining my life with all the anxiety I feel. It has been intensifying in the past years.
