What Is Tingling Tongue?

 Have you ever experienced the sensation of "pins and needles" or a burning feeling on your tongue? If you have you could be suffering from tongue syndrome also know as psychogenic lingual paresthesia. 

Tingle tongue is often caused by either stroke, head injury, vitamin deficiency, neurological disease, or even anxiety. 

When a person is anxious, the body's blood vessels start to constrict. When this happens it reduces blood flow, which eventually leaves them with numbness or tingling on the tongue, hands, and feet. However, don't panic. This can be resolved by calming the nervous or by taking an antidepresent.  

If you notice the tingling sensation continues please contact your primary care physician for further treatment options.
