Is it normal to have these feeling of tingling on the face if taken asthma medicine late ?

Hi, I have asthma and I take symbicort twice a day. On days when I have taken my dose later, forgot, or its really muggy outside I get really dizzy and my hands go numb. Also, rarely, the side of my face will get tingly, like the feeling you get when the freezing wears off from the dentist . Is this normal? Is it from a lack of oxygen?
