OK Louise--is this feeling constant or does it come and go?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It comes and goes seems to get worse on movement or when I bend over I think also having slight pins and needles in hands

OK Louisa. There are three possibilities here but either way you need to see a doctor about this as soon as possible. One would be a problem with the trigeminal cranial nerve in the face--a neuralgia/inflammation condition. Another would be a variant migraine condition with the aura of the migraine without a major headache. Finally, it could be from a disk problem in your neck. I can't give you just one diagnosis here since I can't examine you but you need that exam and I would also get an MRI of your head and neck.
