As of yet i havent seen my LLMD my 1st appointment i just over a week away!

One of my main symptoms was a weird tingling and numb feeling around my nose and forehead. This lasted for a good couple of months and then seems to of started to get better.

I still get it through out the day but it was permenant before. Its like a weird pulsating feeling. Hard to describe.

But what i have noticed is that when i ever touch my nose it goes all tingly and numb even when i aint getting the feeling. I can bring it on by touching it.

I was just wondering if anyone else has felt anything like this.

I just find it strange how it seems to of improved but its still there and how its feels wierd when i touch that area

anyone? Im really baffled by it iv had an mri on my head and neck which all came back clear and i have had like an electrodes on my face to test my nerves and that came back fine! if it was lymes causing this weird symptom would it show up on the tests that something was wrong? would it get better? and could it be triggered by touch?

Dr. Zhang said the numbness is often caused by vasculitis caused by the Lyme or coinfections.

I don't know how to help-= I have a numbness/tingling feeling constantly in my left hand. It feels like it is always asleep.
It is relatively new- just the last few months and ranges from mildly annoying to totally aggravating!

Good luck at your appt!

Numbness and tingling around my nose and mouth and in my cheeks was one of my first symptoms when I got sick. I also initially had a couple of MRIs and all was clear; it took a year for me to get diagnosed with Lyme. It has gotten better with abx treatment but has been one of the more persistent symptoms - comes and goes.  
Good luck with your doctor appointment.
