    Is numbness in the lips related to fibromyalgia or diabetes?

    I have diabetes and wonder if the numbness and tingling in my lips and tongue could be a result of low blood sugar? Someone told me it could also be a sign of fibromyalgia. Does anyone know if that's true?

    Yes tingle in your lips and tongue could be caused by low blood sugar levels.  If you are experiencing this you may want to test your blood sugar levels. You may also consider talking to your physician, since that's the best way to know if your diabetes is under control. It's important to keep on top of something like that, so we look forward to hearing how your appointment goes. Good luck!
