I dont know what to have looked at to try to get diagnosed. I am ony 20. I also have extremly painful muscle spams throughout my body. Blurred vision facial numbness and dizziness that causes falls.

Thanks for writing to us.
The chronic rib pain that you are having with the facial numbness could be due to a nerve related symptom. This could be related to a vitamin B 12 deficiency, electrolyte imbalance, muscle spasms or a thyroid hormone imbalance.
