Anyone Having Facial Numbness With Migraines.

I was recently diagonesed with trigeminal neuralgia. But I have been having some really bad migraines with it. I don't know if I have been misdiagnosed or not. It is so painful.

Hi there,

i had a viral illness that went into my spinal fluid and into my head it caused a lot of problems with my trigeminial nerve. For a while I had the most terrible headaches, I felt my head was going to explode. I also had a lot of facial numbness especially on the right side of my face, my eye would twitch, my face would completely droop so that I looked like I had a stroke. Plus all the skin on my face went completely numb.

The headaches were the worst though, I have never experienced anything as painful in all my life. This went on for months but luckily as it was a virus it just ran its course. The fear from all of that happening caused my anxiety but its getting better.

Good luck with everything
