I have been having intermittant electric shock pain in my face, in the upper left cheek and inand around the left eye. I think I probably bring it on I am so worried about it. Might I have a stroke? I might get nothing for four or five days, then I'll get several jabs that stop me in my tracks. I have an appt. with an eye doctor tomorrow, I am so scared it will come and not leave. Has anyone ever had this?
I was thinking the same way...Bell's Palsy (?) Severe stress can also cause facial tics. Try to relax and not think about it constantly. I know easier said than done,but no one has diagnosed you yet so your worrying can only add to your stress. Wish you luck,I am sure it will work out well.
If it makes you feel any better, I do believe strokes cause facial numbness (and general one-sided numbness and lameness) rather than pain, and will cause one side of the face to droop. I'm afraid I can't tell you exactly what is going on, but I really really doubt it's a stroke.
