What causes facial numbness?

I have facial numbness, that varies in location and pressure on head. Have had MRI CAT scans that all come back clear. I do suffer w/ HBP and Diabetes. Not under the best control. I am normally light headed. Is there any specialist that I should be seeing?

Hello,

Peripheral neuropathy is a possible explanation for your symptoms. The best treatment for this condition is achieved by controlling diabetes correctly (Endocrinologist) and by treating the symptoms (Neurologist).

I suggest you to get evaluated by your Endocrinologist and by your Neurologist for your issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
