Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The tongue is a sensitive organ, which is meant to be sensitive because it is very easy to feel the stimulation on the tongue. Starting from changes in temperature such as heat and cold, tactile stimulation in the form of pressure or texture of the food or drink consumed and stimuli in the form of taste and pain stimulation. The tongue is rich in nerves that work to translate all stimuli that hit the tongue.
The presence of a prickling feeling is one of the abnormal sensations that can be felt on the tongue. The presence of a prickling sensation is included in the category of paresthesia where there is an abnormal sensation where in addition to the sensation there can also be a painful sensation, such as burning, or numbness.
Is this condition a sign of a particular disease. If this condition recurs and becomes more frequent, it is necessary to carry out a detailed and further examination to determine the cause. However, if it is only felt for a while and it disappears, it can be said that there is excessive stimulation to the tongue, for example from the type of food and drink consumed which can cause these sensations, for example food or drink that is too hot or spicy, pressure or bitten also causes a painful sensation. .
Some things that can be considered about certain medical conditions from the emergence of complaints of a prickling tongue sensation are as follows:
The presence of trauma or injury. Trauma from the tongue can be realized or not. Previous dental surgery. The presence of infection and inflammation. This can occur on the tongue or from other parts such as teeth and gums. The presence of nerve disorders and blood flow to the mouth organs. Nerve disorders that occur can occur in the nerves in the tongue or there are disturbances in the central nerve in the brain in translating the existing stimuli. Dry mouth condition otherwise known as xerostomia. Exposure to certain chemicals. However, of course, it examines the substances that are inhaled or consumed before the complaint occurs. Presence of certain medical diseases. Such as stroke, multiple sclerosis and so on. However, of course there are other accompanying symptoms in mind. If in your case where the complaint has been recurring, it is advisable to check with a doctor and it is recommended to a neurologist, whether there are certain underlying medical conditions, whether or not a follow-up examination will be necessary will be adjusted to the results of the consultation and examination by the doctor later.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
