Avatar_m_tn This is accompanied by simultaneous ipsilateral (same side) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span>. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness is caused by compression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the second cervical root (C2) in the atlantoaxial space. . Do discuss this with your doctor (both dentist and orthopedic specialist) and get yourself examined. Maybe a MRI of cervical spine may be required. Metallic taste in mouth is a common side effect of many medications. It could be due to infection of gums or cavities in teeth.
Avatar_n_tn the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> keeps feeling numb as does the right handside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my bottom lip. Its not totally numb but maybe more tingly. Can you help me figure out what could be causing this?
Avatar_n_tn there is a syndrome called burning mouth syndrome, in which the mouth burns, but sometimes it could just be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> tingling and loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> sensation. Causes can include viral infections (like a common cold), dental procedures, allergies, medications. the anterior tongue is supplied by the nerve called the facial nerve, other parts of the tongue are supplied by other nerves.
382218_tn?1341185087 Has anyone had sudden <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> and lips, and if so, what caused this? Last night this sensation seemed to come on quite suddenly, and I thought to myself, here we go with another relapse. But after a few hours it was gone, and has not reappeared today. there was nothing out of the ordinary regarding my diet and activity level yesterday, no sudden rise in body temp, no infection (to my knowledge), etc.
Avatar_n_tn I cannot give you a formal medical opinion over the internet unfortnately as this site is purely educational Sensory symptoms alone, particulalry if symmetric and on both sides do not consitute any kind of diagnosis of MS or stroke MS usually present with discrete gradual onset episodes of either blindness in one eye, loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> function <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> one limb or side or loss <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> sensation on one side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the body, that last from 1-3 weeks, then resolves.
Avatar_n_tn It is an awful thing to 'have to put up with' I also have ulcers on the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> and roof <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my mouth, this cannot be normal.
Avatar_n_tn I am and have experienced the same burning and now slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> for the past three months. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> is evidently red. In fact you could draw a clear line from the normal pink of the rest of my tongue yet a swab test proved nothing abnormal!!!! Stings terribly eating anything but bland foods. Chocolate is painful and yes brushing teeth too as the toothpaste stings so badly.
Avatar_n_tn the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> had been numb for almost 5 days, the lower left quadrant of my face was totally numb now and my left hand up to my elbow was going numb as well. I was on vacation and so I called my neuro. He advised me to go to an ER and have an MRI done. of course, the ER staff told me I would have to have blood drawn, give a urine sample and eventually I would go for a CT scan.
Avatar_n_tn However, the numbness (or tightness) around my right eye persist most of the time. I am also experiencing some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> and throat occasionally, most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the time at evenings or at nights. Do not have swollowing or speech problem so far as some others have experienced. I"ve done a MRT scanning and the possibility of having tumour has been ruled out. thank you again and I am very very happy for you that you are getting better!!
Avatar_n_tn then the symptoms subsided. He's complained quite a bit lately about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in different parts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> his body. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> couse, he WON'T go see a doctor. Any suggestions besides getting him to a doctor, and if so, what kind of doctor? Thank you.
Avatar_f_tn Tingling in the fingers or toes lessens over time; occasionally have bad days. I do tend to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in the tips <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my fingers most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the time. these things I've gotten use to. What I've finally discovered from reading here, is the cause of the hair loss which was extreme over the last six months. I've slowed it down to a tolerable level using a hair product called Nioxin, that you can get at a beauty supply store.
Avatar_n_tn I've had the same problem with my tongue for the past 2 years now. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> burns most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the day and I keep getting ulcers on the side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my tongue. Sometimes it's really bad and sometimes it's bearable. My tongue has become so sensitive that I have a hard time eating ketchup, vinegar salad dressing,citruses and even soda can trigger it. Also my tongue feels dry all the time. I've been to quite a few doctors and they have not been able to help.
Avatar_n_tn I have even had these knots on the bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my foot. One <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the strange ones is that my finger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> will swell. About one month ago I had surgery, and it made my body go into over drive. One day I had about 100 bumps. Went to the doc. He gave me predizone. Didn't really help. Also they tell me to take claritin daily...doesn't help. Once or twice my complete hands will swell. Funny thing is that when I was pregnant with both kids, I had not one problem the whole nine months.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, Anxiety is one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness but it is not the only cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur anywhere in your body, but are often felt in your hands, feet, arms, or legs. Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol? Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and diabetics. Many other causes of numbness are there.
1353816_tn?1277072617 I have been having for the last year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my toes and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span>. Sometimes in my lips too. I've been with CFS for 13 years and medicated once a day with one Naprux 500 mgrs (Naproxeno) Xanax 1 mgr and Foxetin 20 mgr. Could my meds be causing this?
Avatar_f_tn Also, consider neuropathy. It is a disorder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the nerves which causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness, tingling, unusual sensations and sometimes pain. Diabetes Mellitus can cause neuropathy. Other causes like vitamin deficiencies, alcohol consumption and certain medications can cause neuropathy. Discuss these options with your doctor when you happen to meet him next time. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar_n_tn Due to stomach flue I had stopped these vitamins since I wasnt eating anything and the symptoms that had subsided started again and now they are there. At times I have also felt tingling in my upper head/brain? and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> - making me think it is there at all the tips of my body... does it have to mean anything?? I dont know.. I am also doing some light exercises like moving the feet clockwise and anticlockwise, stretching toes back and forth, massaging my feet - seem to help a bit.
Avatar_f_tn If you search <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the face on the internet it always come back MS.... I know, I should stop reading and researching as I'm only making things worse and getting myself even more anxious. So I have to know if there are others out there who expereince numbness or tingling as a result of anxiety? And I don't mean in a panic attack mode, I mean throughout the day, which brings on the anxiety. I hope this makes sense. I am so scared.
Avatar_n_tn I was assaulted and had basically the same sensations, numbness from top of right eye, cheek, nose, teeth.
Avatar_m_tn When the tongue issue started, it seemed to affect my entire tongue and at night I would wake up feeling like my throat was closing up (my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> felt swollen, but I'm not sure if it actually was). Now, only the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> is affected. 4) these episodes were almost exclusively a nighttime problem upon going to bed. It always strikes within 30 minutes of being in bed, just as I'm drifting off to sleep. When the symptoms started occurring during the day, I went to the ER.
559187_tn?1330786456 the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and tingling are on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> and right side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span>. Sometimes it even itches. I've had thrush a few times, but this doesn't look like thrush as there and there is no yeasty white coating. This even affects my talking. Any ideas?
660300_tn?1224793961 I knew going in that I had a slightly higher than average risk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> temporary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my lip/chin because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the proximity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my lower impacted wisdom teeth to my inferior alveolar nerve. When I woke up after surgery, the oral surgeon said he didn't think there would be any complications and he didn't think he'd even come close the nerve on either side. Once the anesthesia wore off, I realized the right side of my lip and chin were very numb.
Avatar_n_tn For 2 weeks I have had a perpetual mild numbness in my right thumb, index finger, outer arm, shoulder, and top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> breast. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness is not severe, but there is a defnite lack <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> sensation. It slightly extends to my lower trunk and back. I also experience what may be L'Hermitte's sign. When I flex my neck forward, I get a buzz in my low back which moves into my hips. It only lasts for a couple seconds and is not painful, just uncomfortable.
Avatar_m_tn but numbness on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span>, swollen (grooved) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> edges, and enlarged red papuliae on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> are a constant. Lately, in the last 3 weeks, I also began getting blood blisters/purpura on the inside of my cheeks, i.e., on my buccal mucosa, and occasionally on my upper and lower lip. My complete blood count was thrown off, but seems to be improving. Right now everything is within normal range except my lymphocytes (my lymphocytes are currently @ 1.3 ... normal is 1.
Avatar_n_tn In any case, your symptoms could localize to the cervical spine (although the tongue and lips are above this level, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> and lips in isolation to other signs in the face/neck suggests a non-neurological problem like hyperventilation or an electrolyte, vitamin, or hormone (ie thyroid, calcium) related disorder, testable by some simple blood tests at the neurologists office).
Avatar_n_tn I hurt my neck about four weeks ago exercising and believe that I may have torn a ligament in the back of my neck- since then I have had swelling at the site <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the injury, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in the jaw and face, roof <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the mouth, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness on my left side, fingers and foot, difficulty focusing, headaches, trouble with my balance, etc.
Avatar_n_tn So of course I immediately had some pain so I went to the bathroom to try to clear the cavity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the candy. All <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a sudden the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tongue</span> started tingling. Seconds later the tingling started to spread towards the back of my tongue. I just thought of the worst case scenario. I was on the edge of having a panic attack because I thought it was going to continue towards my throat and like suffocate me however that was not the case.
Avatar_n_tn About a week ago, I began having terrible headaches that come all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a sudden and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness in the left side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my face. the numbness seems to be spreading and getting worse. I am having a brain MRI tomorrow morning. It's interesting that one of your posters mention dental and that you actually mentioned sinus - because I'm also having sinus issues and pain in my jaw (at times) ... and then one of your posters mentioned yeast ...
