Common Questions and Answers about Swollen lip numbness

swollen

Now i have had my stitches out my bottom lip and part of my chin are all tingling and one side of my lip has turned outwards with a kind of lump on my lip. This is making eating and talking harder. I have been told it could be some nerve damage. i would like to know how to they fix this? What are my chances of getting the full feeling back in my lip and chin? Also does it impact greatly on the amount of time before i receive treatment?
I have the usual stuff you would expect from getting punched in the face, such as a sore jaw, fat lip and black eye. However I have some numbness in my teeth, the facial tissue outside my teeth(upper lip and surrounding area) and part of my cheek. When I bite down my jaw hurts so the numbness isn't an entire face thing. I should point out that my black eye isn't bad... there is no blood in my eye. There is no discoloration anywhere besides below my eye and on my bottom lip.
I'm so glad I found this because I too am feeling the numbness in my lower lip. I did have a sinus infection and began a week ago and all my glands were swollen. My cough and runny nose has lasted over a week so yes, I will see my doctor and show her the comment. THANK YOU..
I am a 24 year old male and yesterday I woke up with my lip being semi numb and by that i mean i can tell its numb but i still have alittle feeling. I woke up this morning and it was still like this and it does not feel swollen. I am not sure what is causing it.
About some 12 weeks ago I went to the dentist to have a crown put on my lower rear right tooth. A couple of days later the left side of my lower lip became swollen. My left cheek has a slight swolleness to it too. I have no pain, blistering, ulcers or numbness on my lip area whatsoever, however, on that day I first noticed it, I did initially feel a tingling sensation on the tip of my tongue when I noticed my swollen lip.
I have researched some and it seems that the lip biopsy can cause permanent numbness in the lip. The illustration they show on Medhelp for salivary gland biopsy is showing them doing the procedure on the parotid glands. I also understand that lip biopsies are often inconclusive because it is difficult to get the right spot. Should I ask my rheumy about the parotid, or go ahead with the lip biopsy? Or should I just skip the whole thing? She took one look at me and announced I had Sjogren's.
Seeing a dermatologist or oral medicine specialist is advised.
Three days after the surgery the left side of my face was very swollen, painful and my lower lip and chin were still numb. I revisited the dentists office to get an antibiotic for possible infection. I was prescribed Amoxicillin 500mg 3 times a day. The following day I noticed my left knee was stiff and I had a numbing sensation from my knee to my waist on the left side. I assumed it was because I had not been very active for a few days.
I took a nap today for two hours and when I woke my bottom lip was numb on the left half. From the corner of the mouth to the center. My tongue felt a little swollen on that side, but not really numb. This is the first time it's happened to me. My psychiatrist put me on Remeron, 15mg, which I started 11/16.
It is the other way around, the numbness makes me have a panic attack. The numbness has only gotten worse since I got home from Iraq. I am only a 25 year old male, so it makes me worry cause i am so young to be having these problems. Thank you for any help.
About a year ago I had some numbness in my fingers that would come and go, as well as on the tip of my nose (I think). I was content to say it was anxiety, as I had a lot of it at the time. A week or so ago, the area under my left eye began to twitch and has continued to do so intermittenly. I know this is common and nothing to worry about, but, even more recently, my upper lip feels like it is either twitching or pulsating, as well. It's on both sides and is right under my nose.
I was using a cold sore ointment with Aciclovir in it and I wondered if it has caused damage to my lip and tongue. The numbness of sort is in exactly the same place as the cold sore was and I use to lick the sore with the tip of my tongue constantly!!! I am hoping this is the cause as I am dead scared it may be something more dreadful!!! Any advice would be appreciated....
I woke up with my left side lower lip a bit swollen with some numbness. The skin over the swelling has a darker red tinge. Also there looks to be almost a white pimple blackhead forming on the edge of my lip. The swelling has lasted a day and wasn't there last night. It also feels like the lymph glands under my jaw are getting involved but I can't tell. I suspect I might have herpes but am not sure. Are there any other signs/symptoms I should look for?
I had a lip biopsy done on 18 days ago in order to help diagnosis for Sjogrens. My lip is even more swollen than before and the so called disolving stitiches didnt disolve so I had this out last night. The pain is still there and there is a raised area about half an inch in diameter that is white with redness and bruising that covers a further area of around an inch or so.
It is pre-malignant and the MD using liquid nitrogen to destroy the cells. My lip is still a bit swollen. I dont get it though - Im hardly in the sun, besides my yearly vacation in Miami for week, Im not fair skinned, Im under 30 yrs old, and I dont smoke. Guess I'll have to keep an eye on it, hope it doesnt come back.
By night half my lip was numb all most like when Novocaine is about to ware off. This morning when I woke the numbness was still there and is spreading to my right cheek bone and right nostril. The gums around my teeth are all so losing sensation. All so have a nice headache going on. I have all ways had a tendency of grinding and clenching my teeth at night to the point of waking up very sore. Was wondering if clenching at night could be causing this?

These have gradually gotten stronger, although they only last a few seconds, and are accompanied by numbness. Last night, I had a terrible headache that seemed to be more in my left temple, by the end of the evening the Left side of my top lip was numb, constantly. I woke up this morning and the numbness had spread to part of my nose, cheek, and the roof of my mouth, all on the Left side. The left side of my face was also slightly swollen.

I just had a complete thyroidectomy on Monday and started experiencing numbness just under the chin as well. I had complete numbness of my left hand just after surgery for the first 24 hours and have continued to have tingling/numbness in the tips of my fingers on the left side. My doctor checked my calcium levels yesterday and all was well with that. I too believe it is from nerve damage. The doctors had to leave a small piece of my thyroid due to it being wrapped around my nerve.
I had surgery on friday morning so it has been over 24 hrs and the bottome left side of jaw, lip and chin is still numb. The laft side is more swollen than the right.

I can only explain my scenario and what I have been told over the last 1 1/2 years. (By the way, I am a patient of a university hospital.) In March of 2005, I had a strange feeling in my neck and what felt like swollen glands. The "strange feeling" also included numbness over the left side of my face (nose, lips, tongue, forehead). I went to my internist, and he said that I had an enlarged thyroid and sent me for tests.
Not sure if I am at the right forum but for 2 weeks now I have been having this strange feeling of my upper lip and corner of my mouth, it feels like it is swollen it tingles and the corner of my mouth feels like it is drowling all the time. I go to feel it or look at it - not swollen or wet. I use chap stick like there is no tomorrow but it is not helping. What do I do, where do I go for this? Is it a real problem?
I got caught up in an incident in a pub 4 days ago trying to break up a fight, only to end up with a glass shoved in my face. This left me with a deep cut under my eye, a swollen black eye due to the force and an immediate tingling sensation in my right upper teeth. Four days on and my face is still very swollen but now my right side of my face ie; my eye lid, forehead, nose and cheek are all numb, especially my teeth.
I have had tingling/numbness in my arms/legs for 3 months. ARMS significantly worse than feet and SIGNIFICANTLY worse at night. I wake up with my arms "asleep" I have tingling/burning in hands and electric shock feelings in feet. Eye exam- normal. Negative brain MRI, Negative EMG testing that was completed on the right arm. Cervical spine MRI in 2 weeks. Neurologist states,"if it is not this-then it is not a nerve problem." I am very frustrated to find a diagnosis.
