iam a sufferer of migraines,ocd,panic disorder and anxiety/depression(i know iam a mess) lol. for the last 3 weeks i have been having a dull headache nothing bad just there and it seems to move.now i dont know if this has anything to do with it or not but about a month and a half ago i started getting odd sensations in my face.mainly my cheeks. almost a numb feeling but its not numb.i went to my doc and he told me its prolly anxiety causing the face sensations.well the sensation have decreased and the dull headaches are there. also the doc did a small test, stick out your tongue.touched my face,held up my arms etc...everything seemed ok.
idk what to think.

Idk what to think either. What does your innerself say? If you thinks something is there keep pushing at it, get as many second opinions as you need til you get answers. Try neorologists, primary care, allergists, etc.

I suffer from migraines myself. Back in October I got real sick. Naseau, vomiting, dull headache and wwierd sensations in my face with my left eye swollen. 2 weeks in and out of my doctors clinic, an eye specialist. I got so bad after those 2 weeks, I could not sleep, I hurt so much. I made an emergency same day apt, finally got a doc to listen to me. She sent me to ER for an emergency MRI. Never made it past the ER, won a bed for a week. MRI showed major swelling and inflamation in my muscles that control my eye, doc thought I had a major infection. I was given iv antibiotics (despite my 2 weeks of antibiotics, steriods, cream for sty's everything the primary doc tried). After a week, hospital gave up on tryin to figure out what was wrong cuz I wasnt getting better. Discharged and refferred to specialists at a well known teaching hospital 3 hours away. I go there 2 days later. Never made it out (lucky me, I had a hunch I would be hospitalized again, so I packed a bag this time lol). Won a trip to emergency biopsy surgery and hospitalization. Test results after a few weeks.....I have a couple rare blood diseases. And I'm being checked for sarcoidosis. I have been diagnosed with Wegener's Disease (auto immune disease) and Necrotizing Gramultous Inflamation in my eye.

So with my story, I tell you, listen to what your heart is saying. If you think something is wrong, prob is. You know your body the best.
