Tip of Tongue Numb and Dry Mouth
An_224372 posted:
The tip of my tongue feels sore and numb, and the inside of my mouth along my teeth and gums is getting dry & sticking to my teeth/gums.

This has been going on for about a month. I have no allergies, no tooth or gum problems, don't smoke, nothing. In good health. On medication for anxiety but have been for years with no side effects.

What is the cause?

Hi Anon_37215,

Try to think of any changes that you have made in your daily life over the past month. Then, I would speak to your doctor about this and hopefully he/she can do a physical assessment to find what may be the cause to this reaction. Good Luck!
Best Wishes! Amelia
