Well i am a 19 year old male and lately i have been having back problems and i dont know if that has anything to do with this but its the only thing that has changed since my bottom lip has become numb, it doesnt really tingle it's just numb and its kinda freaking me out so if anyone know why this is happening it would be nice to know if this is a serious thing or not
Zev Kaufman, DDS responded:
Dear Anon_136673:
It is impossible to diagnose the situation just from a limited description over the internet without a proper examination.
The problem can definitely be related to the back pain and possibly a nerve problem.
The best I can suggest to you is to go to your dentist and make sure that the problem is not dentally related. After that a proper examination by a neurologist is in order.
Don't waste time. Go see your dentist as soon as you can.
Best of luck and I'd love to know the final diagnosis,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
