Numbness: Tongue numbness, ear ; jaw pain, and sinusitis---all may be related, or may be coincidental. One-sided numbness should be examined carefully. First, see a medical doctor to rule out any conditions that require medical attention. If you are fine, but still with above symptoms, consult with oral surgeons and/or dentist with tmd training. Bad bite, hormonal changes, neuralgia, etc., maybe related.

The Orofacial Pain practitioner is another option. There is a list of board certified dentists in the field of Orofacial Pain. Check American Academy of Orofacial Pain. Respectfully.
