Numbness in Tongue: from Pressure on Spine or Post-Surgery
My tongue sometimes feels numb/strange when the pain/numbness flares up due to 5 weeks post surgery (removal of 2 discs in neck and implant of two bones) and/or symptoms of myelopathy. My surgeon rolls his eyes when I mention my tongue! However, prior to the surgery, my tongue elt strange or numb most of time, which increased with the flare up of my other spine-related symptoms. Post-surgery it feels relatively normal (what is normal now, anyway?!!) and only bothers me with the really terrible flare-ups.
