Common Questions and Answers about Tongue numbness pinched nerve

tongue

Can a pinched nerve be fixed? I have sharp pain in my left hip. It is not constant; but, my left foot is numb and tingling as is my left calf. It has been this way about a week and seems to be getting worse. I could not shift the gears on my 4-wheeler yesterday with my left foot. I know it is a pinched nerve, but I can't afford any long term pain therapy.
What would cause tongue numbness, lower lip, and face twitching on the right side of my face?
If it was just the pain I could very easily live with that. It is the numbness that really scares me. Atfirst I thought maybe a pinched nerve, but everything that I have read says that a pinched nerve in your neck does not cause facial symptoms. I did go to a neurologist in December of 2006. My neurological exam was normal and he did an MRI just to be sure. The MRI was normal. His answer was that sometimes these things just happen and can't be explained (?).
With diabetes you can get peripheral nerve damage and this can cause numbness. In the feet and hands the problem can stem either from the neck or spinal cord depends where along the spinal cord that nerves are being pinched. In the hands, it can be from compression of the carpal tunnel. Usually with someone who has a repetitive job. It could also be a circulatory problem. You can also experience numbness from the cold.
I do not suspect that you have a pinched nerve for the story you have related ( a pinched nerve should give a focal defect, not the whole body). I would recommend that you get and EMG(nerve muscle test), QSART test (for autonomic neuropathy) and screening blood work (to look for other causes than diabetes) including b12, ana, tsh, monoclonal protein in serum and urine, copper level, ceruloplasmin, vitamin E level, and B6 level. I hope this has been helpful.
Hello. These symptoms are varied. You have loss of taste sensation, one sided weakness, celiac disease and probably Bell's palsy. There could be a direct effect of the celiac disease on the brain functioning. You should be restricting gluten in your diet. Do you have allergy to certain foods? I would like to ask if you have had MRI of the brain, EMG and nerve conduction study earlier. If not, can you get these done?
I have anxeity problems and I have back problems and just had surgery on my shoulder in august. I dont know if I have a pinched nerve somewhere or what, but this is annoying! I am almost afraid to bring it up to my doctor, especially where I live they are bad about not giving the right diagnosis. That is if they even test you at all!
I thought, perhaps, it was a pinched nerve in my neck, but I can't find any information on a pinched nerve that causes pain and "fire" sensation in the scalp or numbness & tingling in the tongue. It's extremely painful for 30 seconds to about a minute and a half, and then it's gone. I never know when it's going to happen. It only happens once every 1 - 3 months. It has, though, been happening most of my life, and I'm now 44.
I guess my question is, first, does anyone know what is gouing on? haha Secondly, is this possibly a pinched nerve, Lyme disease (I live in North Texas), ms, allergies, or some type of other disease or infection? Thirdly, if the CT scan and MRI didn't detect anything, what are the chances that the angiography will? Thanks in advance for the help!
I have been able to return to my normal jogging routine 2-3 times a week. And I racked it up to some kind of pinched nerve issue from sitting most of the day at the office.
For 7 weeks, I have been experiencing fluctuating numbness that varies in location - my left leg and foot, pinching/burning palms of both hands, pins/needles both hands and feet. Numbness in my tongue and lower front teeth, and left tear duct pins/needles On occasion, I’ll get a short bout of hoarseness. All short-lived and will vary in location each day. It seems to be related to pressure on my left lower back just to the left of the tail bone area.
I think there must be a connection with digestion and the vagus nerve but what is the cause, the stomach acid irritating the nerve or the nerve making the stomach produce more acid and the symptoms. Hmm interesting , I hope this has helped and maybe we can start to understand our bodies and hopefully get some answers somewhere. Im glad I found these postings it sure has helped knowing that Im not imagining this.
I am fighting taking the Tegretol that she has given me to start. Could this not be a pinched nerve? If I bend forward at the waist or put my head back or to the side is when I notice the tingling the most. Is there not some other tests that can be done to be 100% sure before I start on the anti-seizure medicine. I am scared to death to start this medicine if they aren't 100% sure.
Could you have pinched nerve causing the numbness? slipped disc in your neck or back? Something doesn't sound right. I guess they have checked to see if you had a mild stroke? As for the allergic reactions, do you know what you are allergic to? Did they use any dies in the tests they ran? If they did it could be iodine sensitiviy, I am deathly allergic to shell fish and they will never be able do do the magnetic resin tests on me b/c of the iodine. I hope you get better quickly.
I also found that as i got older my episodes became less violent(only the pain in face/neck are present with numbness of face, tongue and sometimes arms.) I find looking over my shoulder for an extended period of time to be my trigger mostly. When i was younger it would effect my whole side of body causing me to fall, or loose balance as well as become ill or faint because the pain was so great. I have stuggled more with it growing up.
I thought it could be a pinched nerve. We are moving into a new home this week and I have felt a little stressed. Should I be worried? What can I do about it? Thank you.
then a friend who lived in india and helped my face go back to normal said it occured in alot of people over there. Can never be to careful. There is a chance she could have a pinched nerve in her brain causing these things to happen. Ask her if she has the taste something like metal or foil in her mouth, also if she has a pain in her neck before it happens. if yes i'd take her straight away. each time this bells palsy has affected me has been between 4- 8 months for it to appear gone.
Since then, I haven't had any episodes of panic, but still get that numbness after excercise. I DO need to consider the idea of a pinched nerve, as I often have tightness in my upper back, lower neck area. Regarding where I read about the tingling, numbness related to menopause - in several places on the internet - including this site. I just googled it and found many responses - not necessarily from doctors, but from other women like myself.
This is accompanied by simultaneous ipsilateral (same side) numbness of the tongue. This numbness is caused by compression of the second cervical root (C2) in the atlantoaxial space. Occipital neuralgia, TIA or ministroke, trigeminal neuralgia should also be looked into. Common cold, sinusitis, ear infection, sensory nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes, inflamed wisdom tooth, impacted wisdom tooth etc can all cause facial numbness and pain.
I am really confused by this and hoping someone can lend some more insight. Yesterday, I was given great info on how MS is real nerve damage, therefore numbness can not be shaken out. But so many people from this other MS forum state that they have that symptom. Sorry to bug.
He did not want to perform another surgery on me because I am so young and this one is some what risky because he would have to completely move my Ulnar to inside of my elbow. So after all that, a few months like (6 months), I got a pinched nerve in my lower back. It has yet to completely go away. This pinched nerve sends pain up my back, down my back, and down both legs. My toes go numb as well.
Could this be a pinched nerve? ahh who knows! but wish i did! Oh and sometimes my left ear goes numb too.Sorry so long, any ideas?
saw me and 4 said probably TIA, or two differnt problems pinched nerve and didn't know what to say about face and neck.The last Dr. said stress and crushed 4&5 lumbar acting up again go home w/ meds. 2 days later my speach is impaired, my toes are numb and I'm very dizzy today. good luck to one and all.
Now the symptoms come and go and sometimes I suddenly have problems pronouncing words (slow speech, numbness in tongue). Anyone can help? Could this be an infection or should I see a neuro?
I immediately stopped taking the Meloxicam, and although my strength mostly came back, I have since then experienced tingling and numbness in my legs, arms, and face for the past couple of weeks. I also feel a burning or warming sensation sometimes instead of tingling and numbness. It's so haphazard when I have these sensations, and they keep changing/migrating, but I have them every day now, and they seem to worsen in the evening.
The numbness got worse once I got back home so I went to the neurologist and they thought it might be a pinched nerve. I went to acupuncture for my numb feet and had 70% improvement that night. -Today the numbness is pretty much gone but I am left with these vibrations that start from my lower back and go down into my feet. The vibrations come and go. Some days are worse than others. Sometimes I feel weak and tired and other time I feel about 80%.
I also hurt my face and in the process, sustained an Infra-orbital Nerve injury leading to numbness of the area that is innervated by that nerve - under the eyelid, the nostril and above the upper lip. This area was well-described by previous posts. Like most of you, I was also asking if I will ever regain sensation of that area. And when? In my many on-line search, I stumbled upon the term 'Wallerian Degeneration'. It explains how the nerve of our body repairs itself after an injury.
The vagul nerve interests me because after reflux surgery that was supposed to cure my cough, I get the sensation of a pinched nerve on the left front section of my neck usually if I overeat. No pills, nasal sprays, inhalers, etc. have helped more than a litlle bit. It affects my life 365 a year, 24 hours a day. Someone else's posting referred to "us" meaning every person in our lives is affected. I feel the same way.
