I am sorry to know about your symptoms,are you diagnosed of any medical condition
has any tests been done for your present symptoms
any problem biting food?
no i just noticed it and it doesnt hurt
no problem biteing
if it was broken how could i tell and it feels like theres a crack on the right side of my face
any history of trauma?
what are the signs of a fractured cheek bone?
Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam,complete metabolic profile as low calcium may present with similar numbness as you described.
Fractured cheek bone may present with pain ,increased swelling
so it seems less likely
can this happen just by bumping my cheek on my bfs head?
no,fracture with such bumping is least likely,still a physician physical exam,if required imaging has to be done to rule it out
do you have problem opening the right eye?
even if the fracture was really tiny what would the signs be of a tiny cheek fracture would it be noticeable?
no it opens just fine
There is a possibility that your symptoms could be due to idiopathic bells palsy,which may present with similar unilateral numbness of face,
hair line fracture(tiny) could be possible
so imaging tests like xray may be required to rule it out
is a hair line fracture able to heal back to its original place? without medical attention
Yes,it will,it does not require any medical attention,but if swelling persists or increase of pain is noticed,then do see a physician
how long would it take to heal?
It may take 3-6 weeks to heal
if i pressed on it would it hurt?
cause it doesnt usually if it was fractured even a tiny bit it would still hurt when i pressed on it right?
That is not specific sign for a fracture,as it may present variably
still as i mentioned earlier,physician physical exam and imaging tests is required to confirm it
ok thank you
