thank you for your query.

our symptoms point towards the presence of low serum calcium levels in the blood, usually taken as less than 9 mg/dl or an ionized calcium level of less than 4.5 mg/dl.

the sensation on your face is one of the signs of hypocalcemia called as paraesthesias.

the treatment is simple.
1.drink good quantity of milk
2.take foods containg good quantity of calcium.Many good vegetable sources of calcium exist, including seaweeds such as kelp,wakame and hijiki; nuts and seeds like almonds, hazelnuts, sesame, and pistachio; blackstrap molasses; beans (especially soy beans); figs; quinoa; okra; rutabaga; broccoli;

thank you,
wishing you good health
