My girlfriend (30) has a history of migraines, but recently she has been getting left cheek numbness. She went to a doctor two different times and was given steroids to get it to go away. It has come back twice since then. The most recent was yesterday, and lasted over the night into today. This is the longest it has lasted, and I am concerned about what it could be? We thought it was stress, but now I am not so sure. She has seen an ENT and everything checked out alright. She has an appointment with a neurologist in 2 weeks, but I am wondering if she should try to get in sooner? And what possible causes could be? Thanks,
