Lips numb while drinking

Common Questions and Answers about Lips numb while drinking


1142155 tn?1261770432 Angie1960, I constantly have the sensation of electrical shocks running over my lips and around my mouth, so you are not alone. My lips will go numb. At first, I thought I was having a stroke, but as it went on for hours, without any sign that my heart rate had gone up or any other sign that I might be having a stroke, I realized it was just another symptom of the MonSter run amuck.
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 Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar n tn Then I applied my organic moisturizer and sunflower oil for vit E to the corners of my mouth and organic lip balm on my lips. My lips felt really great. A little sting will come back in a while though because the lips will quickly absorb the organic stuff I put so all I had to do was reapply them. But don't forget to wash ur hands first. This so far is my 2nd day following the treatment and it has shown great results just by using cheap but natural stuff.
Avatar n tn I know that I had been using a lipstick I had had a while so I quit using it and as soon as I did my lips started getting better. Now they are doing it again so I'm going to throw my lipstick away and hopefully it goes away again and that will be a for sure sign that it is just a bacterial thing. I used Chapstick Medicated and that really helped it heal quicker.
Avatar n tn After me and my hubby do it my lips usually do swell but it goes away after a while but now that its on the inside its not going away as easy.
1911791 tn?1322379916 It mostly happens with my hands, but also with my legs and entire arms and even lips. It's hard to tell if something is touching the part of the body or not. And very hard distinguishing texture. I'm dying to find out what it is...
Avatar f tn I too felt some sort of relief that only I knew that I had a numb chin and lips. The tingling does seem to indicate that the nerve is tryng to knit together again as I have definitely felt an improvement over the past few days so feel fairly optimistic that it will correct itself almost entirely. I have tried gently massaging my chin when I shower and although it may not be much help it feels as if I am doing something to improve things!
387660 tn?1242600342 I've tried everything mentioned above but nothing works except coffee. I just started drinking coffee while driving just last week. I'm really woried now because i'm starting to depend on it. I have a lil kid and i'm worried I might get into an accident one of these days.
Avatar n tn Since I was a child, and until now (27years old) about once every three months or maybe more, I will have a frightening experience while sleeping. Once I'm asleep, sometimes it feels like my head will get really heavy and there will be a deep low humming sound in my head or maybe a train sound that seems to paralyze my entire body, however once this feeling of heaviness occurs, I wake up internally, but my eyes are not open and I can hear everything going on around me.
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 m tn I don't know if this is even a legitimate problem area, but I'm having problems with anxiety while driving in my car. It's getting to the point where I'm afraid one day that I won't be able to even get into the thing. My Dr has had me on Prozac and Celexa but I'm now off of both due to the bad side effects I was having. I go back again on the 17th of this month to see what else they'll prescribe. Anyone else have this "phobia"? Thx, Thom.
Avatar m tn It’s like my muscles don’t like being in the “in between position.” This is weird, but if I scrunch up my face to make a “yuck” expression my lips and muscles around my nose and mouth quiver back and forth. If I touch my chin to my shoulder then the muscles in my upper chest and lower neck will spasm. If I bend down on one knee to tie my shoe my chest muscles will spasm. It all seems to be getting worse. Finally, I have been shaking internally at night when I try to fall asleep.
Avatar n tn i found these two really read painful bumps on my vagina it cant be from shaving because i dont shave the lips or just outside of them!!! im scared!! it hurts really really really really bad! but i havent been sexually active in three months! wouldnt it have shown up earlier if it were genital herpes or warts??? it isnt crusty or anything, and today is my first day noticing it! could it be from masturbating??? help!
Avatar n tn I've read most of the posts on this forum and most people have had the same experiences that i've been having for the last couple years. I know i have a panic&anxiety disorder. the first panic attack i've had was about 4 years ago. a while after that, i never experienced them anymore.. i guess it's partly because i didn't know what it was.
Avatar n tn But the neurologist failed to do his job and find out why when I sit, my perineum burns and I have a burning sensation that goes through my urethra also. Also, while sitting, the back of my legs start to burn very badly, and sometimes my perianal region also. Now, why can't a neurologist tell me what is being affected, given that it seems the nerves of my perineum and my bladder nerves are being compressed/irritated?
Avatar n tn For the past week my lips have been really chapped so i went and got chapstick, but it has not been working! Now it seems that my lips are not chapped anymore and they are numb and sore!!! Help i dont know what it could be!!The only thing that is different is that i have been drinking green tea? Could i be allergic to it? What kind of symptoms give you numbness and swelling of the lips???HELP!!!!!!
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 f tn I have wondered about MS for a while. My symptoms are strange and varied and don't seem to fit in any one box. Tiredness Numbness in the fingers usually the middle to small fingers. Cramps and contractions in the same places - under ribs ( front and back) on certain movements - (L) middle finger contracts ( only this finger) - cramp severe and uncontrollable inside (R) inner thigh. Severe burning ( like a hot needle) pain on top of ( R) foot in exactly the same spot each time.
1216899 tn?1288573925 I have read through the archives, and have found quite a bit of reference material on numb lips, but not this.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn I do avoid drinking alcohol 99% of the time, but occasionally I am not bothered by it so once in a while I will try drinking beer or wine. Also, coincidentally, two years ago I re-broke my nose and during the time that my nose was swollen from the break I could drink alcohol with absolutely no rash or numbness - but as soon as the swelling went away so did my ability to drink alcohol without the accompanying rash. I also have the same effects if I take cold medication that has alcohol in it.
Avatar m tn While driving to work, I felt myself slipping out of reality and I found it was very hard to breathe and my heart was racing. My fingers began to go numb, then my feet, and my lips and face began to feel tingly. I thought for sure I was dying. Since then I've quit smoking, drinking caffeine of any sort, or alcohol of any sort because I thought that was the problem. After a trip to the ER following the episode, I was given an antibiotic for Bronchitis. It did nothing but wreck my stomach.
Avatar n tn Nearly every day, my face, head and sometimes parts of my body go numb, tingley, today for the first time I had trouble pronouncing my words when I was teaching, and instead of just being numb my face especially my lips and front teeth, hurt.. on a scale from one to ten, it wasn't horrible, I'm thinking a 4/5... tolerable, but really distracting. While driving home from work I got the kind of head pain that feels as if you have been kicked in the head by a mule.
Avatar m tn It's a frequent sx for me along with numb lips but it always disappears after a while. The longest it's lasted was around a week. I didn't have any loss of taste but I had to be careful when eating as I kept biting myself! I hope your numbness disappears too.
Avatar f tn Anyway, my sad story could continue but it's been over 2 years now and the pain has been lifted. My problem during the separation/divorce was I turned to alcohol to numb my pain. Oh boy.....did I enjoy my cold beers and the ones to follow. My pain was so overwhelming I thought by drinking myself to sleep it would take my pain away. On certain days, I would drink about 12 beers from after work until about 10pm. It's painfully clear, I was drinking heavily to subside my pain.
Avatar n tn My other background is American Indian and Italian. I get bloated in the hands and flush cheeks while drinking alcohol. I have been waking up every morning with my hands still bloated even if I have not had a glass of wine. How long does the alcohol stay in my system. I have never been a heavy drinker because of the family history. What is going on with me?
Avatar n tn i have numbess in the left side of my face and just last night my lips went numb. metallic taste on the left side of my tongue and a dull headache. my left arm also seems to be affected too. its all very strange. its a bit hard to cope with when you have three children too.

Avatar m tn My facial itching has declined over time, but starting at about day 60, my lips felt as if they had been rubbed with sandpaper. They were and continue to feel somewhat numb and irritated. Topically-applied hydrocortisone and later mometisone (a stronger cortisone) had no effect.
