Thank you for posting your query.
Your symptoms could suggest a weakness of tongue muscles on one side. The tongue muscles are supplied by the hypoglossal nerve
, which originates from the lower part of brainstem
, at the junction of cervical spinal cord
A picture of your tongue when protruded outside, would help in deciding whether or not you have a weakness of tongue muscles.
If weakness is confirmed, we need to do MRI scan of brain to find out the cause, such as stroke
, infections, tumors, etc.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.
