Brief Answer:
She needs to see a Neurologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and would try my best to help you.

I have noted the clinical details of your wife. She could be suffering from severe migraine. However, numbness of ear, jaw and nose is not common in migraine. A brain scan may be necessary to sort out the diagnosis. For proper diagnosis and treatment, please show her to a Neurologist.

I sincerely hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
