    Hi Cody.

    I never got those sensations on my face... maybe someone else can shed further light.

    Several years ago I had the symptoms you are describing but it turned out to be Cellulitis in my face.

    Have you been to the doctors with your face symptoms?

      Hi Chrissie,

      Thanks for response. I'm told I should get a MRI of the brain. It's a constant thing bow , the tingling numbness sensation in face have it a little in legs too, achy legs. Thought it could be coming from my cervical issues but not sure.

      Achy legs for sure, I had burning sensations come and go in various places on my head also so probably possible. I think once you have nerve issues, it can manifest itself in many ways.

      You might try to see a neurosurgeon for advice.

    Actually the sensations you are feeling in your facial area are probably caused by tiny nerves being affected by that cervical condition in your back.  I have the same thing, and though I've had one of the biggest spine surgeries ever done, I am still bothered with those little tingly sensations on the left side of my face. If any swelling, inflamation etc. is bothering nerves, that can surely cause your problem.  It can go away as quickly as it appeared, but most always will reoccur.  Good health wishes sent your way!.
