hello and welcome to Neurotalk!
I am sorry you are hurting... if you are experiencing this just go to the ER, they should test you quickly...
I would like to know if you have been to the dentist?
if you have not you may need to go - if you have you may wish to have the doctor see what is going on, does it tingle and burn numb?
because when you panic it makes everything worse, do you have dry mouth?
you need a clean low pH to 7.5 pH drinking water, chewing gum may help,
it may be a type of burning mouth syndrome, do you have a pink tongue or is it coated white? if it is white inyour mouth you may have candida -called for the mouth "thrush".
do not use flouride toothpaste, it will make it worse,
flouride is not healthy -it is a toxin -
start researching and go to a dentist or a neurologist...
I am just a patient with Parkinson's Disease, who has a bit of what you are having and I must say - yuck -the mouth is very sensitive...
if you want to ask questions in any forum -we do have many so do a search on the search tab and see if any of my questions pop up...
PS ; do not chew or eat anything with the artificial sweetner called aspartame, it was called equal -it is a neurotoxins -
if you need gum go to a healthfood store, or read the ingredients if they are listed - a good sweetner is called stevia - it's what a healthy sugar should be- sugars are not bad for the body but we do not need to eat candy all day -it may cause diabetes - and we do not need anymore health problems - okay...

It basically feels like my right side has been injected with novacane . It runs parallel throughout my whole cheek area . I notice the numbess and tightness gets more pronounced when my heart rate increases . As far I can tell I have full function on my right side no signs of paralysis, Thank God. I am still extreamely concerned and worried about this condition though because it just came out of no where . I have been feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed lately so i'm not sure if this could be a big contribution towards this . I'm trying to get a doctors referral to see a neurologist on this condition because I don't want to cause any further delays if this is a serious condition . If anyone has suffered thru this same issue iv'e been having and could provide feedback on what it could be and what measures are to be done I would greatly appreciate it .
