Hi
That is scary, I'm not a doctor by any means, but a few years ago, my husband had the same thing happen, the whole right side of his face went numb, when he smiled only half of his mouth would move. It ended up being Bells Palsy. Its when one of the nerves in your face gets inflammed and causes numbness and paralysis on one side of your face/head. They can treat it with steroids, like prednisone, (which are cheap drugs incase you don't have prescription insurance). You probably need to go see someone as soon as possible.
I have a neuropathy developed a couple of years later and was out here looking for some support groups. I saw your post and remembered how scared we were when it happened to my husband and thought maybe I could help.

Hello,

I am sorry you are going through this... Did they do a brain MRi?? Spinal MRI? Lumbar puncture?? I say that because I am 28 and was diagnosed with MS a few months ago. It all strated with a numb hand.

Have they done this work up already??
