I have been having HORRIBLE neck pains, tightness across my forehead, numbness and tightness in my lips etc. My Doctor has repeatedly ASSURED me that this is all related to stress / anxiety, even if I don't feel particularly stressed or anxious at the moment. There is a total connection between my face numbness and neck pain. Sometimes my face gets the numb feeling before I even realize my neck is hurting, but hurting it is.
I have been suffering from this BADLY for almost 2 months now. I try so hard to believe the Doctor that these feelings are from stress / anxiety and not from some horrible disease, but it's so freaking hard sometimes.
Hope it helps to hear that you are not alone in this symptom, and I hope you find yourself feeling better very soon.
