viness in legs and I also lost some fine sensation in the face and skull. Please advise.
More information is necessary.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your question and understand your concerns.
Symptoms you describe could be related to several conditions, so, it is necessary to provide more information about your problems such from how long are you feeling this way, exact location of the face and skull loss of fine sensation ( i.e. all the skull, front or rear part, left or right etc.), any worsening or relieving activities, any drugs you used for these symptoms, any recent viral infection, any medical evaluation.
Sinusitis to consider.
In this case, first condition to consider and to evaluate further is sinusitis that may be caused by infection of cranio facial sinuses, or impaired drainage of secretions due to anatomical obstacles.
It is necessary to get evaluated by an ENT Doctor and to have done imaging studies of the head and sinuses (CT scan) in order to understand better your condition.
Hope I helped you.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Neurological disorders unlikely at your age.
This pressure location is typical for sinusitis, neurological disorders are very unlikely to cause such symptoms at your age, however, having done a CT scan of the head should give valuable information about the diagnosis.
Hope this helps.

In conclusion, I don't think any of these conditions is causing your symptoms.
Drugs may predispose to intracranial hemorrhage.
Use of drugs may predispose to intracranial hemorrhage, that starts suddenly.
If intravenous route is used then infections are a possible complication.
