numb tongue

Post by nugget » Fri Apr 07, 2006 9:28 pm

Hello !!

Last night i woke up with an awful headache, and although i was not sleepy, my eyes were very tired. My right arm was numb (i was sleeping on my left one) and so was my tongue. I was having delirious thoughts and many weird repetition of thoughts - u know like when ur sick u have weird dreams.

Does this sound like something i should get checked out? i actually was panicking a bit coz why would my tongue get numb. Today i just have a bit of a headache- but nothing else. I just found it interesting and actually a bit scary for such a weird thing to happen and was wondering if anybody was familiar with such a syptom. I tried to run a search, but these big fancy words freaked me out lol i hope i dont have any weird conditions like that!! it was actually pretty frightening experience and i shudder at the thought of it happening again!!

Cheers!

Ya
you really should see the doctor even if its
nothing just to make sure.
I know of a plant that paralizes the tongue,
(But that is an other story) :lol:

Hope you are ok
Keep us posted. :)

well well well
i went to the doctor, ahem it was a panic attack :oops:
lol well i guess ill have to try and keep those cortisol levels down. i was assured that it cant be anything serious, like i woudlnt be needing a cat scan or anything, it was purely stress related.

brain has been working overtime!! thinking about so many things i guess. She told me a sign of it is when u get the tingling sensations , because my arm had them too and it was an arm i wasnt asleep on.

:-) glad i know hey

Nugget,
take it easy, panic attacks do indicate
you may have too much on your plate. :)
