Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly

You just need to relax as commonest cause of peri-oral tingling is anxiety/panic linked rapid breathing. Other causes include low calcium and nerve issues. Have a calcium tablet ? Take it. Take deep breaths and you will be fine. No need to panic.

Just relax.

Hope you feel better soon
