Customer Question
My tounge feels numb...

My tounge feels numb and the tip, is turning blue. What could be causing this.? I quit drinking 36 years ago, and stopped smoking 12 years ago

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I take heart medication for a fib. Two kinds of mediations for depression, one is Vyvance 70mg

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

I told my cryropactor about this, and it happened right there in his office. He said, he never seen this before, and never heard of it. He did press on my neck and it slowly went away.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
