For a few weeks I have this numb sensation along my eyebrow

Customer Question

For a few weeks I have this numb sensation along my eyebrow area. The area is not actually numb, as I can feel touch and sensations. I also can move my eyebrows fine. I have an anxious personality, and people have told me stress can cause this sensation. However, as usual, I am concerned I have something serious wrong with me.

Hi there,

You do not feel numb when you touch it

There is no vision problem or eye movement problem.

You do not have any other symptoms.

So anything serious is unlikely.

Diabetes causes other symptoms before affecting the nerve.

And brain tumor or other brain lesions will cause other symptoms and numbness will be wide spread and you will not feel your finger on touching.

Do not worry.

This is just manifestation of anxiety.

Best wishes,
