Face numbness

Hi
Has anybody had numbness on face which has effected eyesight and hearing?
I noticed it 4 weeks ago from top of the head down to my top lip on right side of face.
I can’t wear my contact lens on right side as makes sight blurry and my ear feels blocked as if I have a cold but at same time hearing seems enhanced?
It’s on the opposite side of face to last time and opposite side to where lesions were but have since had results from January scan which revealed at least 4 new lesions and 2 brain stem lesions. Even my gums felt numb and in the last week has continued to chin.
I’m awaiting an appointment with MS nurse about starting Ocrevus treatment.
Sorry for the long message 🤗🤗

@allinmyhead , that sounds like a Bell’s Palsy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell%27s_palsy).

I had it many moons ago. I believe it was treated by high dosage Steroids. It did impact my eye and I lost convergence of the eyes, leaving me with Diplopia (double vision). This was resolved by working with an Optometrist over the next few months.
