Numbness Around Lips
I have numbness around lips and feet. Im unsure as to what it is. I broke out with a rash around my neck area earlier after taking levofloxcin and ibuprofen. I then took benedryl to help with rash and now im experiencein numbness.. What do i need to do?
See doctor: First we need to know why you are being treated with levofloxicin? Although the rash may be from the drug, the numbness is not. I recommend that you consult your doctor ASAP to be sure that you are not having a neurologic issue especially if the "infection" being treated is from a virus. Do stop both drugs until seen. ...Read more
Infection: Based on the limited information, this is most likely an infected lower premolar tooth. If there is an abscess, it can put pressure on the nerve that supplies the lower lip on the affected side. If it is all the lips, it could be a viral outbreak or something else. Either way, it would be wise to see an endodontist or skilled dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have numbness in and around my jaw, chin and lips. I do have a tooth that bothers me in that area. Could that be causing the numbness?
Lower left lip twitching for weeks..numbness in the face mainly around my outer left eye.. after hours of twitching my face actually hurts..what is this?!
SeveralPossibilities: Most cases of a twitching lip may be due to stress, fatigue, emotion, excessive caffeine intake or some deficiency in the diet such as potassium. Lip twitching in most cases is self-limiting, disappearing in minutes or maybe in a few days without any residual problems. Persistent twitching, especially if associated with other symptoms, should be investigated. See http://bit.ly/1TPjy6c ...Read more
I believe I pinched a nerve in my neck, the left side behind my ear is numb. Can this cause numbness to my lower left lip around the mental nerve?
Facial numbness: It is difficult to assess whether you have a pinched nerve in the neck without more information and an examination. A pinched nerve between the 3rd and 4th cervical vertebrae (C4 nerve root) can cause these symptoms but this is not common. Other alternatives include irritation of the greater occipital nerve behind ear. ...Read more
Can preganacy cause numbness in arm and side face also around lips and nose? Had MRI mra CT EEG all normal. Ob and neuro send me to eachother.Worried
Being Pregnant: I would say that yes, this is normal. There is a lot more blood flowing in your arteries and heart and pregnancy is tough on the body. I remember my wife had several occasional odd symptoms like this. If both the neurologist and the OB have found nothing bad in their evaluations of you then breathe, relax and worry a bit less if you can. ...Read more
Trauma: is most common cause of circumscribed lip numbness. Infection is probably the second most common cause. Focal neuropathy of a branch of the trigeminal nerve can occur in diabetics and with other rare conditions (polyarteritis nodosa, Pagets disease, amyloidosis , etc) If the problem persists see a neurologist. If other symptoms occur or if the numbness spreads go to the ER ...Read more
