Question Numbness in face

I've had a numbness in the left side of my face for over 2 months. It started on the left side of my nose and gradually spread to my cheek, upper lip & gum, forehead and behind my L eye. I didn't think anything about it at first because I thought it would go away on its own. I wondered if it might be sinus related but it doesn't hurt. I don't know why a sinus problem would cause numbness anyway. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this? Thanks for you help.

Re: Numbness in face

It sounds like a problem with a sensory nerve. You might check out Bell's palsy. But definitely see a doctor or neurologist and get it checked out. Good luck.

Re: Numbness in face

Have you had any cosmetic surgery? Any cuts or anything that has gotten infected? A piercing perhaps?
