Numbness in right side of forehead. Having eye twitches. Odd smelling throughout the day. Symptoms inter-related?

Hi, I have been having some weird symptoms in the past few months. The right side of my forehead started going numb every once in awhile. It s been happening a lot more often and now is numb almost 24/7. I also noticed that I started having really annoying eye twitches. This happens on my right side also. Another weird symptom is I keep smelling a really odd smell throughout the day. At first, I thought it was just a classroom I was sitting in, but now I m noticing it in random places throughout the day. Could these symptoms be related? What could be going on and are these symptoms normal?

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

I have noted your complaints. I feel that a possibility of epilepsy- complex partial seizure need exclusion in your case. This can be done by two tests 1. MRI scan of the brain 2. EEG test- a test which will tell us if you have seizures. These two tests will clarify the situation.

Hope this clarifies
Best wishes
