What part of your face? All of it or just a piece? I am asking because I have one kind that will be so bad that I will fall to the floor in pain and I have another that is basically feels like whatever part of the face it is has gone to sleep. There are many types of face or head pain so I need a bit more info.

If I remember correctly (which is a bit IF) we talked about this on another post and many of us have that. You might want to see a neuro if it gets too bad. It could be something or it could be nothing. With this disease ya never know!

This happens to me quite often. Sometimes it's the start of a Lupus flare, and sometimes it just happens and then goes away after a couple of hours with no further flare symptoms. Are you currently seeing a Neurologist Tracy?
