Upper lip numbness, tingling sensation in cheeks after blowing nose very hard, have pinched nerve in the neck. Cause?

A short while ago I noticed my upper lip on the left side went very numb for a few minutes after I blew my nose . After a few more minutes the numbness seemed to move up into my nose and then into my left cheek, but more like a tingling than a numbness. Now the the numbness in my lip is all but gone, but I still have some tingling in my right cheek. I ve noticed this off and on over the past weeks sporadically, and at first I thought it had something to do with my shaving in the mornings because that s when I first noticed it. But I didn t shave after I showered this afternoon; however, I did blow my nose pretty hard during my shower and afterward. I have a pinched nerve in my neck that sometimes acts up, but it s never caused anything like this before. Any ideas what could be causing this numbness?

sometimes a broken nerve on regeneration can cause little wrong connections and faulty regeneration which gets corrected on its own sometimes.
these may sometimes present as numbness, tingling etc.
you can show it your GP for physical examination.
