Another new symptom? Strange facial feeling.

Over the last few days I've developed a funny sensation in my face on my left side. Is just at the lower side of my cheek bone (closer to my ear), and into the hollow underneath, working back towards my ear. Is not painful, but almost like when you've been blowing balloons up and have a pressure feeling in your cheek. When I put my head down it seems slightly more exaggerated. Of course I've checked for lumps hehehehe, have to love us menopausal women, and have no other symptoms.

When do the new things stop happening???? I would normally have thought I was mad and not asked about it, but after mentioning the buzzing in my foot and hearing of how many others suffer the same thing, decided I'd give this one a try as well. I do have a bit of a cold and had hayfever lately, so possibly could be tied up with that.

Re: Another new symptom? Strange facial feeling.

Hey Judenz.....I was one of the buzzing left foot people...and I also have a different feeling under my jaw....left side. sometimes it feels like a tightening or a tiny spasm. It started out with the feeling of blowing up a balloon though when I think back. Now it comes and goes....often panic (of course) about it being the artery freaking out. We are sooo very strange...I am off to my GP today.....Have my list of 35 symptoms.....going to ask if this is 36 hehehe....Lesley

Re: Another new symptom? Strange facial feeling.

I occasionally experience a slight numb feeling in my right cheek, under my right eye, and back toward my right ear. I usually feel a little lightheaded first, then I get that pressure, or numb feeling. It usually lasts about 15-20 minutes, then it goes away. I've had an MRI and it showed nothing unusual, other then some sinus issues. I've chalked this up as yet another menopause issue.
