Face is numb

One side of my face is "numb" or like a lot of presssure. From the corner of my eye down my nose and into my cheek. Has anyone heard of this? It is not constant just annoying. I am thinking about going to an ent about it.

Re: Face is numb

It sounds like you may have something going on with your maxillary sinus on that side. It could be a sinus infection, allergies, or something else that is causing it to get inflamed and keeping it from draining. Seeing an ENT is your best option at this point.

Re: Face is numb

I had the same problem and went to the ER and it turned out to be Bell's Palsy.
