[QUOTE=MSJayhawk;4898845]I often have "droopy face". For me the main problem has been with the right side of my face. I get pain behind my right eye and I alleviate it with acupressure on my temple perpendicular to the pain.

Have your pinched nerve problems actually been pinched nerves or were the dismissed as pinched nerves?

Keep a list of all of your concerns and let the neuro sort things out. :angel:

If MS is suspected, whether by you or another doctor, please make sure you see an MS specialist. Your MRI should be with and without contrast and images should be of your head and cervical spine.[/QUOTE]

I had a EMG/NCV test done when I had the numbness because at the same time I had the face numbness I also had arm numbness so asked the Neuro for theses tests. Thats when I found out I had Neck,Back and wrist radiculopathies. I just don't know why the face symptoms and doctor said it's not from the radiculopathy/pinched nerve:confused:
My neuro deals with MS I guess if thats a MS specialist. Also I have a appointment with a second neuro as well Jan 10. I don't have any eye problems except for my astigmatism and I went to see my opthamologist and told him about my issues and he dilated my eyes and checked my optic nerve and says it looks good. Idk:( Thanks Jayhawk for replying back to me.

*The doctor has ordered a MRI of my head,C spine and T spine with and without contrast but insurance denied it saying not medically necessary!! So waiting for another ins company in Jan which I will try again if not i'm going to lose my mind.

Make sure you tell your doctor your mri was denied, sometime just changing the diagnose code will work.
