My tongue and lips have been numb and tingling contently, I'm on no medication / no oral surgery. Not sure if I should see a dentist or a Doctor.

In brief: Dentist

You may have an infection that is putting pressure on a nerve.
Even if you do not have pain, call for an appointment.

In brief: Unexplained tingling

Have you been eating or drinking anything new lately? How long has this been going on? Start by seeing a dentist to rule out any dental problem such as a cyst, infection or tumor. If your dentist cannot find the cause of the problem, he\she will refer you to your physician or a Neurologist for further evaluation.
