About the symptom

Abnormal sensation in the face, such as numbness, tingling, prickling, itching, or burning. Paresthesias can happen due to many different conditions, including nerve damage or anxiety.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Numbness or abnormal sensation over face

Possible causes

  • Piriformis syndrome

    The sciatic nerve is responsible for control and sensation of the legs. Occasionally, it can be compressed by the Piriformis muscle in the buttocks, causing symptoms that are often identical to and may be mistaken for a slipped disc.

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system), which may lead to permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.

  • Pes anserine bursitis

    A condition when the bursa or fluid-filled sac inside the knee joint becomes irritated and produces too much fluid. The bursa then swells, causing knee pain and tenderness.

  • Meniscus injury

  • Transient synovitis

  • Perthes disease

  • Osgood-Schlatter disease

Related serious diseases

  • Hypocalcemia

    Hypocalcemia occurs when the levels of calcium in the blood are too low. It’s often caused by abnormal levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH) or vitamin D in the body.
