    What does it mean if your tongue goes numb all of a sudden?
    I've been getting a numb feeling on my left side of the tongue a lot it comes and goes even at times all my toes seem to go dead like I have no feeling there but yet I can still walk fine. The muscles in my calves tighten sometimes when I wake up in the morning and its painfull. I went to the doc but he can't seem to find the problem I am epleptic but haven't had a fit in over 7yrs now. Could it be possible that my body is rejecting my epilim meds? I'm not dibectic. Please give me an answer I just wish I knew what it all is because even at night I wake up in shock for no reason and start to illusionate SIGH I'm like a walking dead here.

    We don't diagnose on AMHD for many reasons, one being that it cannot be done over the internet. But I can't help but wonder why your doctor cannot especially when you state you are epileptic. Is this your regular doctor?

    Numbness on the left side of the tongue usually signifies a neurological problem associated with multiple sclerosis. However your symptoms can only be diagnosed with the assistance of an MRI and a second opinion.

    Is this a problem no medical insurance?

    I strongly urge you to see a neurological specialisf
