Numb forehead, had experienced numbness on face earlier. What could the cause and remedy be?

My forehead is numb. Five days ago it was on the right side of my face, originating from my forehead. Now, it is on the right side, just as numb. I have done nothing. I haven t experienced any trauma. I don t think I have Lyme disease . Does it sound like MS? Trigeminal Neuralgia? I experienced numbness in my head...especially now pretty bad. I cannot afford an MRI . Your best advice?

hi, what do you mean by numbness? Is it your feeling of numbness or there is real loss of sensations like touch, pain etc. If you have really lost sensations of touch, pain, warmth, then you need complete work up including CT scan or MRI. But if you can feel touch or pain, and it is just your feeling of numbness then you need not to worry. Sometimes mild normal sensations are perceived as exaggerated if we have a fear of some significant illness like lyme disease or multiple sclersois or trigeminal neuralgia in your case. Till you don't have any other symptom you can rest assured. It will resolve spontaneously within few weeks.
best of luck
