Random cheek numbness

For the last few weeks i keep getting random cheek numbness. It doesn't feel numb to touch just numb inside.
It comes and goes sometimes hourly sometimes weekly. I'm going to book GP appointment when i can but just wanted some opinions.
I'm on a few medications but none of them new
And used to be on ferrous sulphate for low iron.
No headaches with it or any tingling.

I have had a brain hemorrhage in the past but it was the other side of my body that was affected with that and I had tingling and an seriously bad thunderclap headache, this doesnt feel the same as my hemorrhage symptoms.
Thanks In advance.

Still having numb cheek episodes.
Went to the doctors did blood tests or anemia, vit d, thyroid etc but came back normal.
Going to the doctors again on Friday.
Fed up of this now.

Just updating incase anyone sees this..
Been referred to neurology.
Doctor mentioned ms as a small possibility but not likely.
Reassured me it's probably not an aneurysms as i had a mri this time last year.

Hi @empty, just handholding here until someone else with more knowledge comes along. I am also on the neurology train, having had weird sensory issues and muscle fasciculations and twitches for about 8 months now. I've had my MRI and now about to have nerve conductivity tests which I hope will totally rule out MND. I was woken up last night with my left thigh muscle twitching so badly I couldn't sleep through it. Am hoping it was down to dehydration as I'd had some wine the night before grin. Anyhow, here's to your cheek, and my leg and neither of us having a nasty neurological disease brew
