I have what I can describe as a tightness in my left cheek extending from the bottom of my left eye, down my cheek to the corner of my lip. It comes and goes, or maybe something makes it come and go, I'm not sure. Its been going on a couple years, seen a neuro and had an MRI with nothing showing and no diagnosis. Whats interesting is when I'm out in cold air, my tight cheek gets VERY tight and it effects my speech until it warms up. I can move my cheek muscles, ie, smiling etc with no problem, but it always feels tight. My MD ruled out that thing lots of pregnant women get---forgot the name... Its annoying and concerning. Any ideas? I had a baby and had a root canal on that side around the time it started. Also, sometimes when I strain my face muscles hard, I can kinda feel like a tickley, just waking up sensation inside my mouth.
