Brief Answer:
Tongue numbness is not normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you may be suffering from nerve irritation.
To reach the near diagnosis or exclusion of the other disease you may consult the ENT specialist for ENT examination mainly cranial nerves and if necessary also go for CT scan brain.
But in some conditions it is only related to some allergies which subside itself.
I personally advised to you, better to consult your doctor for better management because it is nervous system related condition.

Wish you good health.

Thank you. I have also notuced my gums are swollen. I dont believe any of this is allergy related. So you think its a secondary nerve issue on top of strep virus?
