Angry Numbness in lip and face left side

For 6 months now I have had numbness on top left gumline.
This comes with partial numbness left top lip and cheek.
I have had an mri scan and bloodwork both normal.
Doctor's are baffled ?
Can anyone help me I am at wits end!

Re: Numbness in lip and face left side

Hi I am not promising any cures of course, there are some foods that are supposed to be good for the nervous system if one wants to try. Concord grapes, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are said to reverse brain damage in rats.

Almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, lettuce, oats, pine nuts, wheat germ, whole grain cereal, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pollen, apricots, passion fruit, green, peas, chick peas royal jelly, and avocado might be useful.

Re: Numbness in lip and face left side

Doctor says facial nerves heal at a rate of 1mm per month and if numbness not gone in a year it is unlikely to go!
No one can tell me why this has happened to me?

Re: Numbness in lip and face left side

Hi you are welcome! Of course no one can really explain probably now. I suppose there is more than one possibility. If there is a blood vessel that was partly blocked by a small or even tiny blood clot then the nerve in that area may have had a problem. If the blood supply could not return then the nerve might not ever either. I think with some of these scans that perhaps they do not detect small blockages of tiny capillaries or tiny cysts only a few cells large. My sympathies. It is said to have perfect health one must have perfect circulation. Perhaps if one walks everyday in sunshine and fresh air while nourishing themselves well, sleeping well on schedule and doing other things for health such as drinking plenty of water and avoiding bad substances such as additives, drugs, alcohol etc. it might return. But as they say if it has not returned within one year it might not come back. If it ever returns I would like to know. Peace

Re: Numbness in lip and face left side

Numbness on that part of the face and lip is usually cause by damage to the facial nerve and the maxillary nerve depending on the extent of the numbness intraorally.If that is the case,you may not regain sensation to that part of your face again so I advice you go for therapy
