Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

how old are you?

are you male or female?

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? bad anxiety symptoms often can magnify small symptoms to make you worried.

do you have a doctor you can see who can examine these areas and do a neurological exam for these areas of numbness?

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

damage to your knee nerves would not cause numbness to your face and head

it could cause weakness in the leg.

did you hit your head during the sky dive? this can sometimes cause brain concussion injury and neurological symptoms.

It remains the same !
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

I think you should see a neurologist nerve doctor and get your nerves tested

you may benefit from a brain MRI scan

you could have a mild concussion from the fall onto your knees which could have caused trauma to your brain if it was a hard fall

and this could be causing you to have some numbness on your face.

let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
