Don't know whats wrong wit me eh.

Hello, I have this problem that just happen to me just recent.. like this morning I woke up with my RIGHT face NUMB.. I have no idea how did that happen.

Its just not my face.. It's also NUMB around the right side of my mouth, tongue, and eyes.

Also, my tongue just lost it's taste. It happened to me before but I still don't know how it happens. IT's like this..

Whenever I drink Pepsi, it'll taste like water then when the pepsi touches the back of my tongue (or closer to the throat), it'll just taste like Pepsi.

Does anyone know wats wrong with me??

My husband has type 1 diabetes and he gets symptoms such as yours when he has an insulin reaction (low blood sugar). Do you have diabetes? However, numbness like this should not be ignored and I suggest you make an appt. with your doctor. Let us know what they find. Good luck!

Re: Don't know whats wrong wit me eh.

It sounds like Bell's palsy, if the symptoms are confined to the area above the neck. This is not a life-threatening condition, but you should seek a doctor's advice about it.

If you're finding that any other areas of your body on the right side are affected... like numbness or weakness in a hand or leg... have someone take you to the emergency room immediately, as this represents a possible stroke and is life-threatening.

Re: Don't know whats wrong wit me eh.

Hi helpme916. Bell's Palsy can be a symptom of Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a multi-system bacterial infection caused from the bite of an infected tick. Do you have any other symptoms?
