Common Questions and Answers about Lips numb when drinking


1142155 tn?1261770432 Hi Adnvwsti, I am so glad you that you have posted this symtom (numb lips) I too have this quite abit and when drinking I often scold myself with hot tea! Its like you have come out the dentist, I find rubbing them for a while sometimes helps or maybe its just that I think I can feel them again. The buzzing thing I you to describe to my GP was like a motor running and sometimes a cell phone. I now know that I am not going mad as others suffer this ordeal also.
Avatar n tn It didn't go away, but changed into a mild metallic taste for a day, and is now a strong salty taste that has degrees of taste ranging from mild to extremely salty. It seems to be coming from my lips, and they dry out and started to crack until I put lip balm on. I am healthy otherwise except for an bad sinus problem that I will be seeing an ENT about. I smoke a half a pack a day drink way to much coffee.
Avatar n tn I experience, hives, swelling lips, gentials, eyes, plus asthma, and rihinitius when I consume eggs, or nitrates (smoke flavouring) or fruits. The thing is these do not show up as positive allergies on allergy skin pricktesting. So the allegist says I have "idiopathic chronic hives" non-allergenic, but I know for a fact I only experience it if I eat these foods, so I am convinced its an allergy.
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 I have the exact same problem only I haven't been sexually active for about two months now and I got what i think is a yeast infection but when i used the infection cream it made my vagina lips swell up and i can hardly walk it hurts really bad tell me what you did for your problem please I am out of solutions.
Avatar n tn i can also tell when they are planning a return because my lips are sensitive to the touch!! i plan on finding out what this is very soon and will let you all kno!!
1911791 tn?1322379916 It only bothers me really when I move or touch anything, including walking. Sometimes it is worse and sometimes it's not bad. It is mostly in my hands/arms/feet/face. When it's really strong I can describe it as waves of tingling. It can get quite painful/bothersome. This usually happens when I'm stressed. The first couple times it happened after smoking weed. I don't do that anymore but I still get this feeling. It used to only last a few hours but the last couple of incidents lasted for days.
Avatar m tn I have always had naturally full lips but when I started drinking Green Tea they somehow shrunk inwards and felt somewhat numb, which was uncomftorable. I just figured it was some sort of allergic reaction to the tea, however I kept drinking the tea for 4 years. I then decided to stop, thinking that stopping the tea would result in my lips going back to usual and feeling like they should, however 3 days have now gone since I drank Green Tea and the lips still feel numb and shrunken inwards.
Avatar f tn it more feels like a burning sensation when i touch it. my chin is extremely numb..the numbest part is right under my bottom lip on my chin in one patch. this ***** so bad. im taking vitamin b6 pills crushed up and also cant eat real solid foodds bc of the tongue issue. this is seriously depressing. your improvement gives me hope! maybe i should try the vitamin b liquid too? lol im taking pills..but i dunno what the difference would be. i havent found anyone who has my symptoms around here..
Avatar f tn About two or three weeks ago, my lips swell up, began peeling and itching, and they felt numb and cracked on the inside but it wasnt apparent on the outside. After using carmax and neosporin lip cream it went away. This problem lasted in total for about 5 days. Now it has returned. When i woke up this morning they were swollen and the numb feeling was coming back. They also itch around the actual lip. I dont no if Im allergic to something or if something else is wrong.
Avatar m tn I have the sweat that smells weird, and my intestines are still cramping just a little. Lips get numb when I sweat- I guess when the toxins come out it makes my face sting too. I never really had any nightmare because I didn't sleep much for 5 days. I am taking lots of vitamins and watching my appetite because weight loss is huge to me. I don't want to be fat anymore. I was thin when I started drinking 10 years ago. I am supposed to have a sonogram soon.
Avatar n tn I had been drinking it for many years -- I remember when it first came out and my figure skating coach treating it as if it was the second coming. This Dr. told me aspartame was made by the same company that created Agent Orange and the herbicide Roundup, and that it was not fit for human consumption. It is true, the company is called Monsanto
Avatar n tn I felt dizzy, shortness of breath, cold and pale face, my hands and feet numb and muscles cramped. The first time when I had this problem, I went to ER, unconscious. But all my blood tests and other tests are fine. I was a professional swimmer, no other illness. I am worry about that I may have some kind of serious sickness and disease. When it happens, even I eat food and sugar things, it doesn't work at all. Laying down helps. I felt no blood and oxygen go through to my brain.
Avatar n tn And the scary part is they all seemed happier when they got back, except for one poor girl who's memory was zapped. I know that talking about mental hospitals is weird, but here in good old Indiana, when you go inpatient, you are put in with everyone that is classified under mental health. Which means you are locked up with the possibility of having a schitzophrenic, a heroin addict OR an alocholic as your roomate.
Avatar n tn I used to drink a lot but have been sober for almost 3 years.. when i drank sometimes i would take naps when not drinking and i would feel like i was completely paralyzed but was conscious of everything around me. It seemed like it lasted forever and was super scary and all of the sudden i would be able to force myself out of this state somehow. Now sober have been treated for anxiety and take Pristiq 50mg once daily.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar m tn Never been told I have any type of vitamin deficiency in the past nor have I had allergies (aside from the flushed skin when drinking). I have been on these supplements now for a few weeks and there is no change. I need help and don't feel like I am getting it despite talking with 3 professionals now. It has now become extremely debilitating because it is uncomfortable all day long. Any ideas? Thanks so much. I appreciate it.
Avatar n tn The vision, jumpy eyes, puch drunk feeling, coordination problems, dizziness, ONLY seem to be really bad when either my neck gets very stiff and sore or especially when I get an extreme pain between my shoulder blades, almost like a large burning knot. I initially had the symptoms continuously for a period of 3-4 months but then the back pain eased off along with a reduction in the vision problems etc.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone. When I would have been about 2 weeks pregnant I had a drinking episode. At the time I didn't know I was pregnant and I am definately not drinking anymore. I was just wondering if drinking that early in the pregnancy can affect my baby. Could it cause miscarriage???
1268921 tn?1288922656 arm is numb, random thoughts, and now my lips are going numb...It makes me laugh a bit to think that a few months ago I would've been freaked out, but right now I am just thinking "Here goes a Chiari episode"...5 months makes all the difference, doesn't it??
Avatar f tn i dnt know whats going on i was told sence i was a baby i had glucose problems , Which i still do but it wasnt that bad but last night it got worse Like last night i went to sleep, around 2 in the morning i woke up my lips were white my mouth was dry my hands and feet even my lips were numb and i was feeling weak, and also i had trouble breathing and my heart was beating irregularly, so i drank some cranberry and had a piece of cake and i was feeling better.
2015036 tn?1333001388 is you mouth numb in areas? I have had problems with my mouth, lips, and tongue at times. Mostly my lips though. hope it feels better soon.
Avatar n tn I recently started drinking diet coke again, after giving it up for a while. (I'm a bit of an addict to it.) And now I've had numb lips for the past 10 days or so. I wonder if there's something to it? I'll try giving it up and see how it goes.
Avatar m tn Day 4, there were slight tingles that would go away when I touched the outside of my face with my finger, and a burning all around the outside of my dry lips that was a hot dry feeling, it felt like dehydration around my lips but drinking water didn't help. All my mouth on the left side felt like the same residual pain after getting a mouth shot at the dentist, and portions of my lip felt kind of numb.
Avatar n tn I have the same problems as many people on this forum. My problem with my lips began about 13 years ago when my lips began getting chapped and I would bite off the scab or lick my lips to keep them from drying. After a while I developed a rash around the bottom of my lip, so in my case I probably licked away the oil on my lips, and from licking them so much I always had sort of scabby lips.
Avatar f tn Lasts 10 minutes or so Tongue goes dark blue, numb and affects my speech . Lasts about 10-20 minutes then the tongue becomes bright red and feeling returns. Difficulty swallowing. Food gets stuck half way down. Drinking water just comes back out and the blockage is eased after I relax and concentrate on swallowing. ( quite scary) Very annoying habit of licking my lips and gums and excessive swallowing, results in chapped lips and cold sores.
Avatar n tn About a month ago I was eating out with a friend, and out of nowhere my left side, and lips went numb. It only last maybe 15 or 20 seconds,then it went away. Since then I have been getting numbness in my lips, left hand and arm, dizziness, and sometimes nausea. It comes and goes, and only lasts seconds (15-30) but it has been happening several times a day now. The nausea is a lot more frequent, I feel constantly as if I had been out drinking the night before, and still feel queezy.
Avatar f tn My therapist explained it best. When you get anxious you start taking shallower breaths. When you take shallower breaths, you are taking in more oxygen than needed. So in turn the tingling you feel is simply too much oxygen in your blood. It sounds terrible, but is not harmful to you. The therapist told me when I feel the tingling, hold my breath for 30 seconds. During the first 10 - 15 seconds, your body starts telling you to breathe. Keep holding it though.
Avatar n tn However, after the birth of my first child in 1991, I too have developed a severe reaction to alcohol. Sometimes just touching a drink to my lips causes it. The reaction is an immediate flushing feeling, heaviness in the chest, palpitations, heaviness in the arms and head, stomach cramps and a general feeling of malaise. It almost feels as if I have a rapid decrease or increase in blood pressure.
Avatar m tn I'm not yet Dx...but my left side of my lips go numb at times...and the tip of my tongue seems funny at times too...not sure why all this happens though.
