Thank you for posting your query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of a problem in the trigeminal nerve
area, which starts in the brain stem and supplies the face.
It may be useful to do an MRI
scan of the brain, to identify the underlying reason. Mainly, we need to exclude any ischemic lesion (lack of blood flow to that area).
Please get back if you require any additional information.
