Lip & Tongue

I have had tmj for about 20 years and just recently I have had a new problem. Does anybody else lose use of their lower lip and tongue while eating. It started happening a couple of weeks ago. I will be eating and pretty soon I can't hold my lower lip shut while chewing. Then my speech becomes slurred when my lower lip & jaw becomes slack. I can't tell but I think that is why my tongue doesn't work.

Re: Lip & Tongue

Before I ever had any surgery I had problems with my lips, tonuge and chin going numb and then the entire left side of my face would go numb. The DX's in the ER thought I might have had mini strokes and I was even sent home from work once due to the attorney I was working with thought I had been drinking at lunch time. Now, my lips, gums and chin are numb but it is from surgeries and it comes and goes as it pleases.
You are not alone!
