See your doctor: You should mention this to your doctor since he/she has been treating you, he/she may have more insight.

Nerve : There are many potential reasons for this which may or may not be related to your facelift surgery. If related to the facelift, it could take up to 2 years to resolve. However other causes should be evaluated prior to that. I would discuss your symptoms with your surgeon who may perform an examination.

See a neurologist: Tingling in the tongue is unusual. See a neurologist for a thorough exam.
Dr. Matthew Schulman

Neurologist: It would be unusual to be related to the facelift but possible that there was never injury. See a neurologist to pinpoint injury. It may be something totally unrelated.

New issue: I agree it is probably a coincidence that this symptom developed at the time of facelift. I would see a neurologist.

Infection: You have an illness...Probably viral (because most illnesses are). Strep throat can also produce those symptoms. It is always a good choice to be seen when you feel so awful...If ears hurt too it could be an ear infection and having treatment choices is very helpful. Make an appointment to be seen.

It depends.: I do not think that a heart condition is likely, given your age and results under normal conditions. It depends on when you get these episodes, and under what circumstances. If they happen during a hectic period in your day, like at work, etc., i would say anxiety is likely. However, if they occur at random points during your day, or after exertion, i would say get a stress test, etc..

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
