Discomfort On The Tongue?
Hello, I want to ask. My tongue last Sunday when eating like a little uncomfortable, I think because eating hot food but continues to this day, when eating can not feel the taste as usual, a little numb and empty. Then this morning I felt my left face on the lips and cheeks was a bit swollen as if allergic, but I recall that I had been eating that was safe, safe, a bit stiff when moved, and not as right as usual and rather felt something was up. Why do you think? What is the influence of food? Thank you
