Why is my bottom lip numb after having an UGI?

Patient : Why is my bottom lip numb after having an UGI?
Doctor :   Hi Thanks for you query, albeit small and specific. The causes of the numbness of the bottom lip after UGI Endoscop y are: - The topical anesthesia still is working on the lower lip. -It is possible that the instrument through which the endoscope passes make a trauma at the base of the lip casing neuropraxia. In a normal course this is fully reversible, nothing much to worry about. Hope this helps.
