So My Fourth neurologist and my fourth diagnosis. Apparently I dont fit into Atypical TN or TN
Had severe facial pain in left cheek for 3 years. I take gabapentin, pregabalin, verapamil and paracetamol.
The strange symptom that I have is that my skin is numb over my left scalp, left cheek, down left neck, left shoulder and left shoulder blade... This test was done using a small pin during my physical comparing a prick on my left side to my right. I was aware that my cheek was numb up to about my eye since the last time i had a physical a year ago but the area of numbness has grown quite dramatically.
There are facial pain conditions which initiate from the neck and spine so im goingin for another MRI to check for abnormalities in these areas and more blood test. I am more scared of finding nothing than actually finding something. 3 years is a long time !
Has anybody had numbness across there skin which has grown in area over time ?
