Okay, i didnt know where to post this so sorry if its in the wrong place.
Now this may sound like a stupid question and i really wasnt worried about it, till i googled it but the tip of my tongue has been tingling for about 3 days now non-stop.
I read on the internet that this a sympton of MS.. should i be worried? Has any body got any ideas what this could be?



UPDATE: 5th Day and my tongue is still tingling....

Tongue tingles/Tingly tongue/sensitive tip of tongue
my tongue has been tingling for 3 years on and off - especially when I drive or use the computer concentrating or at night trying to get to sleep in bed. I think its a neurological problem - as I am not aware of it if I am busy doing things during the day. It sometimes gets very tingly after eating spicy foods or maybe if I just rub the tip of my tongue against the back of my teeth. It doesnt worry me - its just very annoying sometimes. If I chew some celery or gum it takes my mind of it and then it goes away for a while. It first started as a "burning mouth syndrome" - when the whole of inside my mouth was tingly and had a metallic taste - that wore off after about 6 months - just leaving a very sensitive tingley tongue.

The dentist and Doctor have no idea apart from "the burning mouth syndrome" which has been written about - there was an article in the daily mail about 2 years ago.

very weird
