You can have oral muscular dystonias from some of the bladder control medications (ditropan, and others) and that is probably the reason. There are medications that you can take to reduce symptoms, but sometimes this just has to go away by itself. You should call your doctor and inform him of this finding. They should send you to a movement disorder specialist (neurologist) for a rule out oral-buccal-lingual dystonia diagnosis. Please get back to me to discuss this further, I can send you information on this problem, or ask questions and I will reply.
