A 44-year-old female asked:
I was diagnosed with a saddle pulmonary embolism 6 weeks ago & my lip keeps going numb & tingly cud this be due to oxygen levels in my blood?

Lip: Tingling in the lips is more likely to be due to co2 being low from overventilation rather than low oxygen. There are other possibilities also.......
