I had oral thrush on my tongue and a sore throat. The thrush

Customer Question

I had oral thrush on my tongue and a sore throat. The thrush has gone but my toungue has a couple of small sores on it. I also have a numb feeling inside my mouth around my cheeks which is my my main concern. Do you think the numbness is related, or something different? I have an old filling as well, so could it be a warning sign that needs a dentist? I feel generally fine in myself and swallowing is easy. Thanks.

Hello

A numb feeling would not be from former thrush.

I would go to your doctor first, before the dentist.

Calcium imbalance can do this.

So can other ectrolyte imbalance.

If this progressess to other areas, stroke is a concern.

Trigeminal neuralgia should be ruled out.
