Lips numb after surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Lips numb after surgery


Avatar f tn hi there - you should go back to your dental surgeon.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am a 40-year-old female. I woke about 10 days ago with numb lips. They were gone the next day but came back a few days later and have been near constant for about six days. The numbness moves around in my lips and also it moves around to various parts of my face. In my face, it's not full-on numbness, but more a stiff feeling, which comes and goes. It extends to the ears, the forehead, and to the chin.
980510 tn?1282014546 and from what I read, chiarians must be careful b4 and after surgery with neone working on our cervical spine. I pray it is just a temp feeling that will go away...was it a deep tissue massage ...what exactly did the PT do?
Avatar n tn ) for a week and am using a spray, with a follow up visit to discuss the possiblity of surgery. Also, after treatment began, I smelled something for the first time in about 10 years. It wasn't smoking related after all.
Avatar n tn The left half of my lower chin and lips are still partially numb(there is burning sensation). Is this permanent or is there still chances of the sensation returning? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/514588'>Jaw surgery</a>.
Avatar n tn It is possible that you don't have to take calcium supplements. Usually one has to take the supplements long after surgery if the parathyroids were removed along with the thyroid, or if they were damaged in any way. The tingling is worrisome, though. The first thing you should do is find out your calcium level. This is done with a simple blood test. If you had previous tests, compare the results and see if they are consistently normal.
Avatar f tn If the pain/cramping gets worse, you start having heart problems, you become numb on your lips, hands, or feet, or your hands/legs completely cramp up have someone take you to the ER immediately. Having problems like this after TT is quite common. Parathyroid glands do not like to be disturbed and really act up after many TT surgeries. Don't ignore this!
Avatar f tn When I graduated from high school I had surgery on my jaw to fix a severe underbite that I had. Ever since then my lower jaw from the sides of my lips in has been slightly numb. The doctor said they didn't cut or see a nerve during surgery but they must have pulled on one. So I have to live with my jaw constantly tingling like if my foot was asleep. So here's the new problem. I never had acne problems during high school. After my surgery I started have constant problems with deep acne.
Avatar f tn I talked to the dentist that did my surgery, he told me that because of that issue, instead of pulling the whole tooth out, he would break the wistom tooth (the one that was closed to the nerve) So I went for the IV sedation because i was too scared to be awaked during the whole process. after i woke up and the numbing agent is gone, i realized part of my lower lips and chin were numbed.
Avatar n tn My 10yr old daughter had the influenza in January and a couple hours after giving her tylenol tablets her lips become very swollen. It was scary. Just yesterday I gave her advil at bedtime and the next morning her lips were swollen. The dr seems to thinks it's pain relievers but I am not so sure. Another dr. says it could be food colorings or other things she has ate that could've caused the reaction. Reading all of your postings, I am wondering if it could be something else.
Avatar n tn I bought some monistat 7 today. I showered and used it, but after using it my vagina lips swelled up and that has never happened before from using yeist infection cream. Its happened after rough sexs which is normal.But, do you have any idea why my lips swelled after using the infection cream? Is it supposed to burn and itch as well?
161647 tn?1280611763 Because I was Hypo before the surgery, the surgeon put me on my same dose of Synthroid, he also said I didn't need any calcium supplements but I'm having some tingling in my fingers. Is this a sign of low calcium or just normal after surgery or is it just my imagination? Maybe anyone who had half removed can let me know their experience after surgery and what I can expect in the days and months ahead.
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth removed 3 years ago. About 3 days after the surgery I knew something wasn't right. My entire mouth was dead numb. I couldn't talk right or chew food without my tongue getting in the way. After about 3 weeks the feeling came back on one side but since the surgery the entire left side of my mouth (tongue, gums and lower left side of my mouth) have remained numb where I can stick a pin in it and wouldn't feel it at all.
Avatar n tn I believe it started from using a medicated chap stick which made my lips feel numb at first, then chapped from the inside, tiny bumps, then burning, then weeping. Allergic reaction, I think? Ibuprofen and the triple-antibiotic seems to help with the uncomfortable pain.
Avatar n tn It usually starts from one and somehow spreads to the other, leaving my lips dry, inflamed feeling, and very uncomfortable. After a few days it seems like you've all said to turn hard and crust off. I've had this for actually the past 2 or 3 months, it only very rarely before but now I'm getting it almost every week. After the dry skin has crusted off, I get a free week of normal lips, and then the little bumps reappear.
Avatar f tn Similiar thing happened to me awhile back. Started with my lips going numb then was the left side of my face. I went to the ER and they all freaked ruling out a stroke, so maybe you should go check it out!! Better to be safe than sorry. BTW it wasnt a stroke, they had no clue!
Avatar f tn slept mostly after surgery (8am) but woke up later in the afternoon and noticed the left side of chin/lip from corner of mouth to center of chin/lip was numb. This was different than the other side that was no longer feeling the anesthesia. Day 2: No pain. The left side of chin and lip from the corner to the center of the jaw is STILL numb. My extraction sites are a bit sore but no real pain to speak of.
521505 tn?1212050110 I have numbness of lower Rt. jaw, chin, and lips past removal of Rt. lower wisedom tooth 6 days post-op. (Tongue is not effected.). I knew there was a 20% chase of this going into surgery due to my age (44) and root formation impacted around nerve. But, I had a nasty bacteria (smelly) in the wisdom tooth that would not go away after a couple of rounds of PCN and special rinses. Why does the numbness increase at night?
Avatar m tn I have been having numbness in my left palm, left part of my lips, left side cheek, and in my left hand fingertips. It is not constant, it comes and goes when it likes. It is never all at the same time. today it is my left pinky and ring finger. The other day it was the left side of my lips and my palm. I also get dizzy on occasion, and sometimes see little stars. I have a panic disorder, when I tell doctors this they think the panic disorder sets off the numbness.
408312 tn?1202062473 I was visiting my brother and when I was leaving I pet the dog. When I got in the car it happened so fast where my lips went numb after tingling and they had the little red blisters on the outer edges. I'm not allergic to dogs but the dog could've had a certain pollen or other allergen on her.
Avatar n tn Also, an odd sympton I had immediately after my stomach episode in July was an odd, almost numb sensation in each of my wrists (feels like I'm wearing a tight watch around them) This wrist sensation occurred immediately after my gall bladder episode but before the surgery and went away several days after it appeared.
Avatar f tn Sorry about your experiences with the numbness on your nose and upper lip on the right side. I can only imagine after surgery when the surgeon cuts through tissue, vessels and nerve endings that the severing of those nerves can cause damage and it takes time for it to remyelinate. I know when I had the right thoracotomy, I had thoracic pain syndrome for 6 months (perhaps a month more) and it took that amount of time for my body to heal and nerves to remyelinate.
645390 tn?1338558977 As far as my facial numbness, this has happened to me before, it is spots of my face, around lips, lips that are tingling and parts numb. Same as part of my butt, it is totally numb, I also have had this before and it has gone away. It is back now, and it disconcerting. I just feel "off", almost like I have been "invaded" with a flu bug. I am not sick though. The fatigue is INTENSE. Feel like my body is in slow motion, and is dragging me down. Emotionally I am a wreck.
Avatar f tn The elastics came off after four weeks, a much-anticipated event. Braces come off eight weeks after surgery I am very pleased with the result. My bite is normal and my teeth come together as they should. My crooked teeth are only a memory and my face has a more balanced look. My only regret is that I didn’t do it many years sooner. Will anyone notice? You probably have heard the saying “it’s as plain as the nose on your face.
Avatar n tn my doctor said sometimes his patients even use a hair dryer to dry off...after a bath... he also said, its normal for women to be in so much pain from it...feeling like vomiting...unable to sit down, or sometimes even walk properly... one doctor was amazed i was able to even sit down!! ..
Avatar m tn I was by the toilet alot too as the Tylenol 3 were making me sick All day Friday, Dec 14th, one day after surgery, nothing changed, same pains, same sitting in the steam, same cant open eyes, peeing a lot.. Friday night same as before, very little sleep, I wake up every 20 min or so, because I can’t breathe through my nose and my mouth get’s very very dry, so every time I wake up I have a Popsicle, man those Popsicles feel so good.
168348 tn?1379360675 After TT, my parathyroids were disturbed during surgery (only one was touched and reimplanted, the other 3 were not touched). They all stopped functioning (out of shock? retaliation?) for about 18 months. After slowing weaning off the meds and calcium, I still take four calcium pills a day. My parathyroids did ultimately kick back in, and in that sense I was really lucky!
Avatar f tn I had a chin implant inserted through my mouth several years ago by an oral surgeon. Since then, my chin has been numb, I still have feeling in it, but it just feels weird, sort of "dead like after Novocain at the dentist". Also, since the surgery, my mouth always "falls open". It's like I can't keep my lips together anymore without trying really hard. I am also not happy about the size of the implant that was used.
