First off, I've been doing a little searching on the internet trying to figure out what this is. I haven't yet been to a doctor, as it doesn't occur enough, I seemed to have procrastinated with it.
I am a 16 year old male, I weight within the range of 190-210 lbs. and have a height of 5'11".
Ok, I'll get to the problem now. For about... the past 9 months to year, only at seldom and almost completely random times, I would just suddenly get a small tingling at the tip of my tongue, hurting quite badly, it then works its way all the way to what feels to be the back or major part of my tongue. It's not in my throat, it doesn't go past the area of swallowing, it seems, however, at this stage, if I try to swallow, it feels as if my tongue is numb and swallowing becomes quite hard. It feels as if my tongue is 'twitching' or 'jumping' when I try to swallow (only when I try to swallow, otherwise it's just tingling).
This has ONLY ever occurred on the RIGHT side of my tongue, NEVER on the left. When this happens, I don't feel any other tingling, or any discomfort anywhere else in my body, only in that one area. I've tried to take note of what I had eaten or drank within 24 hrs prior this symptom, but they're all completely different, and really have no relation (even in ingredients) that I know of. I've never had it before about a year ago, so that rules out foods that I have always eaten for years, I think anyways.
The tingling and discomfort is not on my lips, gums, throat, esophagus, etc. Only my tongue and what seems to be my jaw, maybe a muscle in that area.
Sorry my post is long, I tried to give all the information that I can recall. This occurred for probably the 7th time ever, earlier today.
Thank you for your time, any help and suggestions is greatly appreciated, I'm going to try to see a doctor as soon as I get the chance, but any background information or facts that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
