I know numbness and tingling are common with anxiety and I've had a lot of it on one side of my face in recent weeks, can be the left or the right, and also into the arm on the same side sometimes.
I had a clear neck x ray and a clear brain MRI 2 months ago but still feel like it could be neck related as I have a long history of neck issues (stiffness, pain, headaches starting in the neck, numbness / pins and needles at night in my arms) but never before had this face numb sensation.
A few questions for those who might have the same / similar experiences:
1. Ever had numbness where you can feel if you touch the numb skin but it feels less sensitive than the opposite side of the face. So not fully numb but definitely less sensitive to touch. This worries me cos neuros always stroke your face and ask if it feels the same and when I do that to myself now it DEFINITELY feels different. Is that really bad? The clear brain MRI helps me not over-panic but i don't like it...
2. Can one have these kinds of things from neck issues caused by muscle tension which I assume doesn't show up on an x-ray? If so how to treat it?
