Patient : I am a healthy 21 year old women. Recently I got a pretty big canker sore on the left side of my tongue that ended up falling off two days later. It's healing fine but I noticed that my tongue was kind of numb at around 11am today. By 4pm today the whole left side of my face was numb and the left side of my body (not as noticeable). It's not numb like I can't feel anything, but it feels like after the dentist when you get a shot in your mouth. I don't know if I should go to the ER or if I should wait and see what happens over the next few days. Please help!!
