Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

You should have mentioned when this acetone poisoning happened. If it happened before a year, Nothing to worry about its reoccurance unless you cme into contact with it again. Body has the capacity to nutralize it.

The numbness around lips and fainting can be caused due to several reasons. You also did not mention your age. You must visit a general practitioner to confirm. BP, Diabetis, Sodium level etc are to be pathologically checked. Or it is due to psychological impact of acetone poisoning?

If the doctor relates it to psychology, I can help you if you desire, of course.
Get well soon.
