This is Dr. David

what do you mean by "mengie"

you normally have a meninges lining on your brain which is normal.

numbness on the left facea and left arms and legs would not be caused by one problem.

you should see a neurologist and get neurological examination and pin prick skin testing to see where this numbness is

you may need a brain MRI scan.

have you had a recent brain MRI scan?

Could an irregular heart beat cause these symptions?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

usually an irregular heart beat would not cause numbness of your face and one side of your body or pulling pains in your head.

headaches can be caused by sinus infection or sinus inflammation, lack of sleep, dehydration, lack of caffeine, or too much caffeine, lack of sleep

severe anxiety can cause headaches and pulling sensations

and can also cause heart palpitations as well

thyroid imbalance can cause irregular heart beats as well
