Past couple of weeks been having on and off jaw numbness uper and inside mouth almost like a struggle to get words out and mouth jaw get tired easily, chewing gum seems to calm it down but probably makes the matter worse. Had a ct scan back in january found nothing, I do produce a lot of mucus especially in the mornings anyone else have this problem its very annoying.
Have you had your calcium levels and parathyroid levels checked lately? Your calcium levels could be low. I had low calcium levels and get numbness and tingling in fingers and toes but your lips and mouth can feel like that too.

Been to two neuros - both say I'm fine in terms of neurology, been to two oral pathologists they dont see anything other than enamel on teeth wearing down but claim would not be causing the mouth tightness or numbness.
Hello been to two TMJ specialists definetely not TMJ, I do grink teeth yes but I do grind my teeth but apparently its not a contributing factor.
What I'm going through is I need to chew Bubble Gum thatt's the only thing that relieves me, when I'm not chewing mouth feels strange tight, picture your mouth with clamps on each side that''s what it feels like.
Any other ideas input from anyone going through the same thing like me.
TMJD is frequently muscular and you can have some pretty severe tightness happening. I found a ton of relief with PT, manual therapy on my shoulders/neck/face, and trigger point release work on my face. In particular trigger point work actually done inside the mouth. It hurts like crazy, but with each treatment, I felt relief. It might be worth looking into.
Now what I have which I had gew months agao and than went away is NAUSEA, feel it in my abdomen again in my throat, tongue is white coaded so not sure if the mouth numbness is attributed to acid reflux,d ocs don't believe so. Back in March I had an ultrasound and ct scan of my abdomen all they found was small polyps 5 mm on gallbladder but say its irrelevant to my symstoms.
I've tried Prevacid TeveRaberzole you name it all kinds of PPI pills. Even taking Black Walnut Capsules to treat fungai but still feel nausea here. So any insight is this all attributed to acid reflux? I have to add as well hate doing this my feces is brown but notice over the last few months has a certain foul stench to it, so not sure if its from the pills, or the overgrowth of candida that I apparently have.
