Tongue numbness, dizziness. History of tumor removal

This evening while I was eating my tongue suddenly felt numb and I felt really dizzy. I tried to take a bite a couple of minutes later and the same thing happened. I feel fine now, but every time I try to drink my mouth goes numb and I feel really weird. The food is not different from what I usually eat, Chicken, potatoes, vegetables and red curry. I don t have any allergies. I m 18, 5 3 and 115 pounds. I generally live healthy and exercise several times a week but I have just started taking antidepressants. I also had a tumor removed from my spine last year, but it was so low that it didn t even affect my arms. I did become paralyzed for a while, but my recovery went well and I live normally now.
