face tingling burning tongue

I am a 35 year old female have always been healthy.  For about a month now I have been dealing with a tingeling sensation on the left side of my face mostly the cheek area.  Last week it has moved into my lips sometimes.  Somtimes the left edge of my tongue feels fat and numb.  I also have a burning sensation on the top of my tongue with inflamed taste buds (may be a different problem).  Sometimes the numbing feeling will also be in and at the tip of my nostrills.  I also have a stabbing pain in my ears that I have always thought was TMJ.    My mother has MS so I was worried that this may be syptoms (symptoms).  However she said she once had a pinched nerve causing some face pain.  I had a deep tissue massage a little before this all started.  Is it possible that they could have pinched the nerve?  I notice that if I try to relax my face and jaw the pain subsides but does not completly dissapear.  My GP sees no signs of parathesis on left side and I still have movement on both sides however the left side doesn't feel like it.

Hello, Scappy.

Did your GP offer any suggestions at all?  A friend of mine caught shingles in the face and felt facial pain, tingling and a burning sensation.  The worst pain was in his ear.  The doctor caught it so late that he was left with partial facial paralysis that took a year of physical therapy to improve (but not all the way).  His face would droop so badly after a few drinks.  I don't know if the tongue was involved.  He didn't get the customary rash to indicate shingles.  Perhaps?

Have you had any dental work done recently?  Sometimes this can cause your symptoms.  A pinched nerve can also cause what you are experiencing.  

Keep bugging your doctor.  I don't know if there is a test for shingles but it's a possibility.

best of luck and let me know how everything comes out.
