I have some tounge numbness and taste buds feel funny, a little numbness on my bottom right side of my lip like as if I'm getting a cold sore but I'm not. Should this be any concern?
It may be the start of a cold sore, or even a prodrome of a viral illness.
However it may actually be 'nothing' just some hypersensitive superficial cutaneous nerves, due to stress, caffeine, lack of sleep etc.
I would just wait and watch to see if this persists and requires medical attention,
