Degenerative Disc Disease - Numbness in Face
I was diagnosed with DDD in 1995. Last year the left side of my face starting feeling numb, or more like it was "going to sleep". My neurologist sent me for an MRI of my brain, as he said it sounded like I was having a stroke or mini-strokes. The MRI came back fine. Now this feeling is back. It goes up around the bottom of my eye and as far over as my ear. I find myself rubbing my ear and the left side of my face. The left side of my mouth even feels numb. The best way to describe it is when your mouth feels swollen and the novacaine is starting to wear off.
Has anyone else experienced this type of numbness/"going to sleep" feeling in their face?
