59 Year old male w/diabetes and previous bout with bells palsy on right side and overweight.
Numbness has occured and subsided on the right side of my head and right arm in the past, but this time seems to be different. The sensations occured yesterday in my right arm and then subsided after about 15 minutes, but the numbness is still in my back/right side of my neck starting behind the top of the ear (where a knot has been for the several years) and extends down into the upper to mid jaw level on the right side. Have experienced some temporary loss of balance at times over the several months as well.
Any ideas of what might be going on, or how to begin to eliminate possible causes?
Any help would be welcomed ...
