Question Numbness comes and goes, why?

I was suffering with a numbness behind the right ear. The CT SCan reveald I had a small stroke. They ordered a MRI and put me on Blood thinner. This is my 2nd stroke, I had a much larger one over 2 years ago, which left me with 3 numb fingers.
What puzzles me is this, the ear numbness is not allways present, it's less in the AM, gets worse as the day goes on.
I thought numbness was generally constant and permenant.
What causes it to vary like this in this 2nd stroke. The first stroke left permanent numbness.
I am confused.
