Re: facial numbness

I had Bells Palsy back in July 2007, so I can only tell you what I experienced

Your entire right side of your face would be paralyzed if you had Bells Palsy. You wouldn't be able to open your mouth on the side affected, raise your eyebrows, or close your right eye

I didn't have any tingling sensation while the disease was active, but right after it went away, strangely I did feel a burning sensation going down my neck on the same side. My doc said that it was a side effect from inflammation of the facial nerve, which basically is what Bells Palsy is. Although it can also cause eye irritation, if there is swelling around your actual face, I don't know if that can be contributed to Bells Palsy

Either way, you need to see a neurologist soon
