Hello everyone....ok I have some new numbness going on. My right arm is more numb and weaker then what is was and then 2 days ago my chin has went numb...My Dr apt is not until Thursday....I am just wondering if any of you have had chin numbness...and then what else will go numby by Thursday??

Thank you...sorry that I ramble most days!!


  • Sorry Polly.

    Hang in there.

  • Most of my neck to include the chin are numb. Mine is progressive from my C3 nerve root. It is more numb on the left side, and as such when I turn my head to the left, I feel like I have a very snug scarf on - to the right it isn't as numb - but it is slowly spreading.

    I hope you are keeping a log of these changes for your appointment? I'm trying to remember what diagnostics you've had for your cervical, and too what they say is going on? Refresh my Lyrica memory plz? *HUGZ*

    PCTF C4 - T2, Laminectomies C5, C6 & C7. Severe Palsy left arm/hand.

    Oh Brenda really hun...Your whole left side of your face is numb?? Oh sweety I am sorry!! I have had only the x-rays from the ER dept. and then the MRI the other day, but they only did the MRI on C6, 7 and 8.
