Question Funny sensation in cheeks?

Hi all, I just had to ask if anyone here ever gets a funny feeling in their face?

I started getting this funny sensation in my cheeks (both sides of face) 2 months ago and it has now become an everyday thing.
It feels like my cheeks are tingling somehow but they arent numb.
Its more of a stiffness feeling in my face and it sometimes feels like I am wearing a mask.

At times it feels like someone is pinching my cheeks or holding them in place and I am constantly rubbing and massaging them to try to get rid of this sensation but nothing helps.
It is not going away and seems to be getting worse instead!

I have posted this same question before but didnt get too many responses.

I am hoping to find someone who knows what I am talking about and give me an idea what could be causing this..

Thank you all in advance and best wishes to you all in this new year!!!

Re: Funny sensation in cheeks?

This could be caused by many many things and being that its getting worse tells me you should be getting into your primary care physician ASAP. There is no way of leading you to a good or probable answer until you and your doc start trying to rule out causes. Be sure to note any other symptoms you are having. My guess is that some blood work and perhaps some sort of scan should be done to try and get to the bottom of this. Good luck to you and many blessings. Please don't neglect yourself, there is no way of knowing if this is serious or not at this point.
