Sudden onset numbness in my jaw/face.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Overnight I developed numbness in my face/jaw on the right side. Fearing a stroke I went to the ER immediately. They didn’t find anything.
After several doctor, neurologist, and geneticist consults, no one has been able to determine why my trigeminal nerve went numb. MRIs show nothing unusual. No sign of stroke or anything bad. After some time it feels like the condition gets exasperated after stress and physical activity.
This happened a year ago. At times it’s hard to taste food.
