unilateral facial parasthesia

Hello! I am a 26 year old female experiencing left sided facial tingling (slightly less feeling on left than the right side but not truly numb). It begins under my left eye, and includes my cheek and jaw and runs down my throat. My face sometimes feels "heavy" but there is no drooping. It began about one week after childbirth. I was told at the ER that it was most likely due to a dental problem. I did have an abcessed wisdom tooth on the left and had it removed the next day. the tingling has persisted and that was 7 weeks ago. My chiropractor feels I have SCM syndrome due to breastfeeding with poor posture. I have had perfect blood work so most metabolic explanations are ruled out ( close to low but within range on my B12 ). I keep reading things about trigeminal neuralgia but I dont have any pain. so I have been experiencing this for 2 months so im hoping it isnt not life threatening. My doctor did not want to do a CT with contrast while im nursing. could this be something dangerous? is it possible to have facial tingling and not pain with trigeminal neuralgia or SCM syndrome?? any input at all would be great as its becoming all i think about! thanks!
