Dear crazylyn,

So many women report "weird" facial sensations during Menopause; even numbness, tingling, and drooping that resolves within a short time. And indeed, high blood pressure also might cause such a sensation - best to have it checked out by your MD to make sure you are not hypertensive. 

Let us know what you find out.

All my best,
