Has anyone ever heard about having a burning feeling in the tongue after a thoracic epidural (with IV sedation)? It has been there for over 3 weeks. I have not read anything like it online, there is no numbness (or relief from chest pain for that matter) anywhere, just this.
Strangely, it does go away when eating (it comes back soon after). Having heart/cholesterol problems means eating all the time is not a sustainable strategy.
If a doc is needed, I am not going back to the pain specialist.
