numb lips

April 06, 2005 - 09:49 AM [ life ]

okay, so i woke up this morning (about an hour and a half ago) and the middle of my lower lip felt all numb. it was making my lower front teeth feel all strange too, like they were looseygoose. it felt like when you go to the dentist and they're going to do some surgery so you gotta get the novocaine, and now the shot is wearing off.

that's what it feels like.

and i'm starting to get just a teensy bit worried, as i've not had a novocaine shot and it's been almost two hours and my lip is still numb.

so i'm looking up "numb lips symptom" on google and now i'm worrying the crap out of myself. should i go to the doctor?

one should always be wary when researching symptoms on google! I did that a few months ago when I stubbed my toe so badly that it turned all purple bruised. after looking around on google under 'black toenail' i diagnosed myself as having gangrene, and then I ended up calling a 24 hour nurses line so they could calm me down. She told me that I shouldn't look things up on google without consulting a dr. first. i'll say i learned my lesson!

I woke up in the middle of the night with the same problem, my lower lip was numb and I felt like I just left the dentis office. I of course panicked and jumped out of bed to wash my face off and try to figure out if I was just dreaming but it remained numb for a few minutes. It eventually went away but now I am having facial spasms. Not quite sure if they have anything to do with each other but I am trying to look into it on google before I sound stupid at the doctors office. The numbness happenedn one other time about a month ago when I was eating my lunch at work. I thought I was having a stroke or something. I am very concerned and would like to get some answers. Any suggestions on what it may be?

I woke this morning and my lip was swollen and now i'm freaking out because everybody is talking about syphilis and facial spasms etc... Did anybody ever just get a swollen lip and get over it with no after effects(including death).
Keep me posted cos i'm really freaked out, peace out swollen lipper dudes.

P.S.:i was on drinking binge the week before
