What could be causing my face to be numb on one side?


Answer by  somerset (801)

One of the reasons could be Bell's palsy. The face gets numb suddenly, and usually it corrects itself within a week or so.

Many conditions can cause numbness to your face. Unfortunately, some of those things can be life threatening. Call your doctor and get in for a check up. You could have had a mini-stroke! My dad had one and his symptoms started as numbness.

Numbness is often caused by damage to a nerve. If some nerves serving one side of your face have been squeezed or crushed by an injury, you could lose feeling.
