So i took 5 days cortizone x1000mg , and i was a little bit better , till now when i am taking 3 medrol x 16mg each day...

Brief Answer:
Take pregabalin and vitamin b 12 combination.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Honestly speaking, we can not do much because you are already taking steroids.
And steroids are the mainstay treatment for MS.
For your current pain and numbness, you can try combination of pregabalin and vitamin b 12.
It will give you symptomatic relief.
Please let me know if you have tried this before or not.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Tks yr reply doctor, to be honest i am scared tht maybe they missed diagniosed me, maybe i have somehting more serious like stroke, aneurysm or even cancer ... The pain is not anymore there, only the numbeness on the half face and dizziness/lightheaness (which worries me more) since i cant work or i am afraid to drive....
