Ok, I was wondering, as anyone else had tongue numbness after MVD surgery that lasted for awhile. I spoke with my Neurosurgeon and they told me to start taking Aleve, 2 in the morning and 2 at night. It was to my understanding this was just in case there was some inflammation in the incision area. I was told also to increase my Tegretol again for awhile. I have been told this numbness will disappear. It is strange it comes and goes in my lip area but seems to stay in my tongue. It did appear about 2 months following surgery. Just curious if anyone has ever experienced this and what they did for it. I was also curious if maybe it could be the Tegretol causing it , if maybe it was doing this because I did not need to take it anymore.
