    Dear kamac,

    I also get facial numbness. It varies in how much it bothers me. In my case mine is caused by TMJ,along with jaw joint FMS.Have you been checked for this? I went to an ear-nose-throat dr. and he diagnosed it for me. He felt around the jaw area, did some x-rays, etc. If you haven't done this it may be worth considering.I really didn't have much pain with it, although from time to time, I do.
