Hey bri89, I used to get numb cheeks until a few months ago. Funny, I didn't really notice it was gone till I just read your post. For one, it's a good idea to be as observant as you are about symptoms like that, just so you can be more aware and take appropriate actions to help yourself out. With me, I would get numb cheeks on both sides, the upper part on the cheek bones. I told my doc about this and we weren't sure exactly why that was happening. But over a period of months, I came to believe that it was related to poor liver function, specifically detox functioning. So basically, for me I think the sluggish or cloudy detox in my body was showing in the numb cheeks; as a symptom or side effect. This just helped me to understand that I needed to improve my detox functioning which can be done by eating more fruits/vegetables because of the antioxidant vitamins and minerals, and drink more water and that kind of thing. So your cheek symptoms could of course be caused by something else, but at least my experience is one point of view that is similar. Good luck.
