Facial tenderness

For the past 12 or so hours I’ve been aware that an area on the left side of my face feels odd. It goes from my hair line around my eye and down to my cheek. It’s very strange- tender to the touch and a bit achy. I’ve also had earache on that side intermittently for the past few weeks ? Coincidence. Really expected to waken up with a nasty rash but nothing. Has anyone experienced similar ?

i have bells palsy twice.

my face was completely numb on one side and it drooped on that side.

try your gp just to check
