Hi all, first thanks for looking and thanks in advance for any replies.
It all started at the beginning of November. I had a pretty bad headache. Took some naproxen, went to bed. Woke up the next day and my face felt weird. My scalp down to the tip of my lips felt numb. The feeling I could describe it being is if you injected my face with lidocaine and it’s beginning to wear off. It’s felt like that for three weeks now, and it’s constant. It’s also on both sides of my face.
I also sometimes feel my fingers trembling a bit. Noticeably on my left hand. Also the last three fingers on my right hand have felt numb for a few days now as well.
The numbness sometimes goes to my ears as well. I have no pain. Only had one headache since the initial one.
I went to the ER twice. First, they took a blood test and a urine test and an EKG. Completely normal.
Second time I went was because I started feeling like my brain was cloudy or foggy. Went to the ER. Another blood test and they drew double the vials this time. Took a chest x-ray and a CT scan and an EKG. All came back absolutely normal. They gave me anti-inflammatory drugs and Benadryl intravenously. When it entered my bloodstream, I could feel a weird tingly feeling in my cheeks - first time I’ve had any feeling in my face for a while. It didn’t last, and my face was left numb shortly after. I got sent home from the ER again with nothing unusual found.
Any ideas what this could be? Any insight would be greatly helpful. This numbness and cloudiness drag my day on and it’s irritating. I’m planning on seeing the Neurologist when there’s an appointment available in a few weeks.
