Since March I have been having left sided facial numbness that over a period of days escallates to pressure, blurring and redness in my left eye, ringing ears and my face starts to get a burning sensation. My MRI shows spots indicative of a possible stroke. I have been sent to every specialist , cardiac, rheumatology, GI, etc to rule out any other condition. No paralysis or drooping during these episodes. Honestly it feels like my face is severely infected. That is the only way I can describe it. Yesterday I felt like I was in a boxing match and my face lost. My question is does anyone else have pain with a stroke or TIA. I recently saw the neurologist and at this point no treatment except for aspirin. Of course I have the risk factors of high blood pressure (on treatment) and elevated glucose levels(no treatement just diet) and hypothyroidism(on treatment). These episodes continue and I am not even sure at what point I need to seek medical care again. Thinking about going to Mayo Clinic ...not trusting what I am being told at this point.
