tingling lips

I'm a week and a half into double therapy, took my second pegasys shot on monday.  I've noticed over the last week that I've had a slight numbness/tingling in my lips and the tip of my tongue.  I had a seizure last wednesday and they also doubled my seizure meds.  Has anyone else had this with tx?  I'm thinking it could also be from the increase in seizure meds or after effects of the seizure, and I really don't know which dr to call about it.

Always report anything Sx and changes to your Doctors treating you..

Just a thought.  Hyperventilation will cause you to be numb around your mouth.  Do you think there may be some anxiety component to your numbness?  Garry
