The left side of my tongue started feeling tingly about 1 month

Resolved Question:

The left side of my tongue started feeling tingly about 1 month ago. It has not gone away althought it does seem to lessen when i dont think about it. I have a wisdom tooth coming through and this tongue thing started around the same time the tooth start growing.

Im quite shook about the whole thing because if you type tingly tongue on google you get a bunch of mad answers; from yeast infect to MS ( :S )

I do not have any of the other MS symptoms, so I cannot ascertain what it is. I have a weird taste in my mouth at times but I can not figure out if its the tooth coming out of my tongue - which feels weird at times!

please give me some insight - also I suffer from OCD and anxiety if that helps.

DR HASAN :

Tingly tongue means that your nerve supplying the tongue is getting irritated

which doctor?

Customer:

my GP

Customer:

you can see why im worriee

Customer:

worried i typed tingly tongue on google and got

Customer:

MS

Customer:

and stuff like that!

Customer:

obviously having OCD that hasnt helped

Customer:

i will create new symptoms in my mind

DR HASAN :

burning makes it likely to be fungal infection.

there is no visable anything on the tongue though

DR HASAN :

Do you have any white coating in mouth, or on tongue

DR HASAN :

ok

Customer:

in the morning

Customer:

i do

DR HASAN :

I think you should see a dentist

DR HASAN :

but one thing is most likely that you donot have anything like MS

DR HASAN :

GP might not be able to help you

Customer:

can i ask you something else?

Customer:

which may link 2 this

DR HASAN :

yes please

Customer:

ok, i had a short period where i would get flashes in my eye

Customer:

no bright flashes

Customer:

but like a shape

Customer:

i do recall having this when i was younger though

Customer:

also, i work 9 - 5

Customer:

i get up at 7:00am and work until 7pm

Customer:

i then go bed at about 2am

Customer:

now on weekends i sleep

Customer:

i mean SLEEP

Customer:

i slept for 17 hours yesterday

Customer:

from 7am sunday to 12am monday

DR HASAN :

your vision is normal?

Customer:

my vision is fine

Customer:

same as always

DR HASAN :

good

Customer:

but apparently my anxiety can create these things

DR HASAN :

Headache?

Customer:

no headache at all

Customer:

obviously i feel tired right now because i slept for nearly 1 day

DR HASAN :

thats what i am thinking but nothing should be related to anxiety till organic diseases ruled out

Customer:

hmm

Customer:

what are you thinking then?

Customer:

i should go see a dentist

DR HASAN :

Have you got your thyroid hormones levels checked

Customer:

tell you what i can describe the feelin on my tongue

Customer:

well, I think i did, but i recall the doc saying that the machine was broken for it

Customer:

imagine that - all my problems are due to a throid problem

DR HASAN :

Get it checked too

Customer:

i will go docs 2mo, and tel them all this and get that checked

DR HASAN :

No not all

DR HASAN :

but sleep and tiredness can

Customer:

anxiety too no?

Customer:

i mean you would think i have GAD or something - im anxious all the time

Customer:

ive just boiled it down to self diagnosed OCD

Customer:

as i have a few other mental issues and OCD fits the best

Customer:

but the tongue feeling - if you burn your tongue and then the next day it doesnt hurt but feels numbish

Customer:

u there :(

DR HASAN :

Then its because of that burning effect affecting the taste buds or superficial tongue

Customer:

rigjt

DR HASAN :

No i donot think so

Customer:

do you think its serious?

Customer:

if you saw my tongue you would see nothing at all

DR HASAN :

because once you get examined and investigated for organic problems noone can label you with mental problem

Customer:

right i see

Customer:

ok, so tomorrow i will go doctors

Customer:

and then book dentist

Customer:

i havent been dentist for about 15 years

Customer:

lol very bad

DR HASAN :

See someone else then

Customer:

one more question - if it was MS (which i know its not) would it change due to eating or smoking etc? or would it remain the same

DR HASAN :

some other dentist

DR HASAN :

Yes it would remain the same rather worsen with MS

Customer:

is it common for this to occur with MS?

DR HASAN :

MS gives lot of neurological symptoms which you donot have

Customer:

i have nothing accept being lazy and sleeping to much

DR HASAN :

not common as the only symptom

Customer:

right you are a very very good dr

Customer:

you have helped me alot

DR HASAN :

Thyroid hormones..............get them checked

DR HASAN :

Thanks a lot

Customer:

i will

Customer:

Customer:
