Question: I was hit in the throat by a puck directly in voice box. I am a goalie. Went to specialist who looked inside and said my epigolitus is no longer round but rather has a visible dent. Feels tingly along jaw line? Thoughts please

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.

The tingling sensation on the lower jaw could be due to trauma.
Injury to the nerve supplying the jaw could lead to tingling sensation.
However, there are other causes of tingling sensation also.
Deficiency of vitamin B complex is another cause of tingling sensation.
If tingling persists, you can take vitamin B complex and await the response.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
