Is cause known?: The answer to you question depends on why your tongue is numb - was it injured or did it occur spontaneously? If you did not have an injury or surgery which could potentially explain the tongue numbness, then it's more troublesome than a known cause. Either way, you need guidance from an oral surgeon to determine the cause (if no known injury), and possibly determine prognosis (future).
Depends: Most patients with Bell's Palsy have complete recovery, however this is affected by a number of things, such as: 1) younger age 2) milder symptoms at onset 3) early resolution of symptoms (<2 weeks) 4) early treatment with steroid with or without antivirals. Most start to have improvement within 3 weeks, however symptoms may remain up to 1 yr before improving. Few have lifelong symptoms.
Personal evaluation: A numb feeling in the mouth or tongue could have many possible causes, such as but not limited to an early sign of aphthous stomatitis, a dry mouth (xerostomia), from medications, hormonal changes, certain medical conditions, or allergies.
