Suggest treatment for numbness in tongue and face with migraine
Brain imaging may be required
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.
If not associated with the same numbness in the limbs or other symptoms oftentimes isolated facial numbness proves to be nothing major perhaps related to stress and anxiety, so I don’t want you to panic.
However such a long persistence calls for attention I believe, evaluation for a possible case of multiple sclerosis or a minor stroke. Other causes might be facial (Bell palsy) but you should have noted some facial asymmetry or trigeminal neuralgia but in this case pain is the predominant symptom so I would consider them not that likely. The pain argument applies also to non-neurological causes such as dental issues where there is usually pain as well.
So for that reason I think it is time you schedule an appointment with your doctor to have a proper neurological physical exam which might reveal some other sign which you might not have noticed and to schedule brain imaging, ideally with MRI.
I remain at your disposal for further questions.
Thank you for the additional information. That reinforces my opinion. As for vitamins us doctors, me included, often use them as vitamin B complex are thought to help nerve regeneration, but their true benefit is not proven. Anyway it would take more than two days to come into effect.
Even if your abnormal sensation slowly regresses thoguh I still think an MRI is advised as both those conditions I mentioned (MS and stroke) can improve spontaneously after a first episode but that doesn't exclude the diagnosis.
Hopefully things will work out for the best.
