    I sometimes have a numb, tingly feeling in my tongue and throat. I have difficulty swallowing when this occures. Does anyone have an answer? Also, part of my face feels kind of numb and cold. I, too, have alot of headaches. Oh, by the way, I'm only 31 yrs old.

    Hi Jessie,

     

    Numbness and tingling can be related to MS, as can difficulty swallowing.  However, they can also be related to other things.  You should talk to your doctor about this.  In preparation, take notes of your symptoms and try to explain what happens beforehand and afterwards.  Only a doctor can help figure out exactly what is going on.

      Lisa,

      Thank you for your reply. I saw my Dr. on Friday, and I need to go through some testing, however, he does think it is one of two things: 1. Chronic migraine Phenomenon, or 2. MS.  So, we'll see.

      Thanks again!

      Jessie

      I have constant numbness in my throat and back of tongue area.  Never had it till I had my tonsil taken out on the right and a biopsy done on the left.  I also can't taste food like I used to.  I cannot tell if I have a soar throat because it is numb all the time.  Wish I knew what it is.  Its frustrating not being able to taste food and feeling numbness all the time.  I am 55.  I think the doctor may have cut too much out of my throat.
