Every once in a while I get some numbness in my face. It feels weird and I don't like it, but it goes away. It is happening again right now and I posted a thing about it on Facebook and my aunt immediately sent me a message saying I should go to the doctor today because I'm probably having a ministroke maybe. So I looked up facial numbness on the internet and it says it can be caused by MS, Bell's palsy, cancer, ministrokes or sleeping the wrong way. Fuck.
I feel like the numbness is also sometimes a precursor to bad headaches (maybe migraines?). Is that a thing? Please tell me calming stories about my facial numbness. Or calmly tell me it's probably a good idea to go to the doctor even though I probably don't have cancer and MS. Or lupus.
