Usually I am a heart pain/ breathing worrier -- but the last week I have had a new thing pop up! Facial numbness!
It is usually on the left side of my face (though it will change sides occasionally). It is numb around my temple, cheek bone, cheek, lip, tongue, forehead, and back of neck. Sometimes it is accompanied by dizziness and forehead pain.
It will come on suddenly and last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. It will disappear for abit and then come back later with full force.
I recently started smoking (unhealthy I know), and noticed that today's numbness started today after a small cigarillo, but that was 6-7 hours ago, and it's still going on.
Prior to that I was drinking pretty regularly, but I have not had anything to drink for the last three days.
I am worried about a TIA/Stroke, Tumor, Cancer, or some sort of nerve thing.
Anyone have any experience with this?
