Question numbness/tingling left jaw

I read in one of the post about numbness/tingling in the left jaw,
was wondering if this is something that is persistant or comes and goes
The reason I ask is that I have had the numbness/tingling on the left side of my face for about 3 months some days its mild and other days it feels like my jaw and left side of my lips is a sleep, on other days it goes up to my ear, it doesnt feel like and ear infection or tooth problem I had those in my way younger days I now what that feels like. guess its hard to explain. I told my reg. doc about it, he look in my ear and could see anything but he gave me a script for atibiotics just in case I took them for a month no chage,
any thoughts on this would be great

It sounds like one of the facial nerves is impinged somewere. It can be in the cervical spine, or in the TMJ joint...or even in the middle ear. It's hard to pinpoint and I doubt the antibiotics will be of much use.
It CAN be cardiac related but usually not without a spectrum of other problems.

First thing I'd try would be a chiropractic neck manipulation or some light neck traction (you might be able to rig up something yourself...CAREFULLY). I've fashioned a cute head sling that attatches to a lat pulldown machine at 5,10,15, or 20 pounds...always gets stares at gym .

OK Griz,
The light bulb went off in my head and I remembered your earlier posts....of course, the jaw pain fits perfectly into the spectrum of your angina picture. I left the post up to show how I'd respond to somebody with NO cardiac symptoms.
And now you made me curious whether MY neck and shoulder pains will return. Who knows...
But then Bette Davis comes to mind...
"Oh Jerry, let's not ask for the moon; we have the STARS."

Good luck Thursday.
