Strange thing

While at a reception Saturday I was eating a small wrap and the the right side of my tongue went numb ( novacaine numb ) with a very hot flash up the right side of my face lasted 5 to 10 seconds then gone.
Almost seemed like it was the food, but upon examination, the wrap did not appear to have anything strange in it ?
Pretty weird.

I would see the doctor as soon as possible, please do not wait, if it was a stroke or TIA (mini stroke) waiting will only make matters worse.

You need to see a doctor. It could have been a mild stroke. If it was, waiting could be dangerous since many people have mini-strokes before the onset of a major one.
