Recurring numbness on one side of face, eye and tongue dryness, tingly face, normal test results. Worrisome?

I keep quite frequently suffer from mild numbness on the right side of my face, makes the right eye feel dry and right side of my tongue too. My face then feels tingly, etc but the period is quickly over. I have just finished all kinds of tests - echo scan, carotid scan, CT of the brain, 24 hr hypertension , ECG , name it. Everything came out normal.Yet the numbness persists. Now I have been placed on Thiapril and Neurovit....should I be worried.

The symptoms that you have will fall under category of atypical facial pain. The most important tests that I would be interested to know are MRI of the brain and EEG. If these two tests are normal, there is no need for worry. There are many medications which can help you in reducing the frequency and severity of this tingling. Currently you are not on any of those and depending on your tolerance of this pain, medications can be started.
Good luck.
