In the view of your clinical details,the causes of your symptoms can be-
Please let me know if you can relate the tingling of lips to the intake of some particular food items?Sometimes,food allergy can present like this.
Its probably anxiety related.
Thanks for being in follow-up.
As there is no history of food allergy,anxiety appears to be the probable cause. These symptoms may be continuous ,even if anxiety is a cause.I suggest you to be on a trial of antianxiety medicines(like clonazepam) and observe for the response.It will hopefully improve.
PLEASE TAKE MEDICINES UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF A PHYSICIAN ONLY.
