I have been feeling a lot of new symptoms lately but I have read about them and I almost expected them. However, there is this one symptom that is driving me a little crazy. I feel tingeling on the left side of my face, like it's pins and neddles. I get that same thing ALWAYS in my hands and feet but never on my face.
Has anyone experience something like this before. I don't know if I should call my doctor about this, specially since I am schedulge for so many test next week.
Thanks for your advise,

I was getting tingling on left side of my face and on my lips. It has reduced little bit since it started about 8-9 years ago. My doctors could not figure out root cause of the problem, but they thought it was some type of Neuropathy either due to diabetes or scleroderma. I hope this is not the case in your case. In my case it is permanent damage to the nerves and cannot be reversed.

I do not have scleroderma (my 7 year old daughter does), but shortly after her diagnosis, I began to have lots of tingling that feels like pins and needles on the right side of my face. I had a CT scan, an MRI, and some bloodwork done, but the neurologist couldn't find anything wrong, nor could the two radiologists who read my scans. They basically attributed it to stress, which makes sense since I was desperately trying to come to terms with my daughter's illness. As I write, I have the sensation going from my cheekbone to my jawline. I would talk to your doctor about the tingling, but it could just be caused by stress.

I was actually thinking of some kind of neuropathy but the tought of that scares me. I started with tingling on my hands and feet and it has never gone away. I have that 24/7. I had tests but the doctor only found carpaantunnel (sp) syndrome but that doesn't explain the tingling on my feet. Well, now my face.
I had read that people with scleroderma can get peripheral neuropathy. I guess I'm going to add a couple more tests to the ones I'm having next week.

If you sweat the small stuff you have wet, soggy small stuff.

I have had tingling and feeling of numbness in my face and everywhere else for that matter at different times. I have a vasculitic component to my MCTD and this is what causes it. It can mimic MS at times to the point of getting diagnosed at one time with it. Susie54

I'm not a dr, but I'll let share my experience here.
For over 2 years, I would have pain come and go, beginning in my forehead, traveling down along my jawline. My dr and I "thought" it was a sinus infection, so she would prescribe antibiotics. 30 days, I would be fine, then the symptoms would reoccur.
Finally, she said, "I'm going to check something out here". She would press on the sinuses in my face, asking if it hurt... It didn't. With that, she made a clinical diagnosis... Trigeminal Neuralgia. The doctor was right-on!
Since then, I've been taking Neurontin for it.
Anyway, Ani... what did you find out at your dr's about this? How did your appointment go? (I'm guessing you have been)?
Please, let us know?
