Too many drugs: With so many new drugs it is hard to tell which or which combination may or may not be causing your symptoms. I can't link the urination to the lip sensation either.

See Your Doctor Now: Fever is a sign that something is going on inside your body.

You may need antibiotics to treat this infection, however they should rule out any issues inside your spinal canal which is a bigger deal. ...Read more

NuthinLikeCheapVodka: If you were ever in Borneo and got lost in the jungle there for at least three weeks, and were forced to eat the root of the Disufiram Tree, or if you ever had to eat the Amanita mushroom toxic to your liver, or what you thought was vodka was really methanol, or isopropyl alcohol, or laced with a tasty insecticide--No, I don't think it's anything to be concerned about, unless it persists for over 24 hrs ...Read more

Pretty persistent tingling and slight numbness mainly on left side of lips for over 2 weeks now. What could this be?
Nothing else: At the least you're describing PARESTHESIAS of the lips but it certainly is a bit odd that it should be occurring just over the left 1/2 of your lips continuously. No facial droop on that side, drooling from the left corner of the mouth, difficulty closing the left eye? If yes, then, you may have a mild Bell's palsy. If not then, maybe getting some blood work would be indicated to check things. ...Read more
