Dear tonge
This could be caused by pressure on the lingual nerve (tongue nerve) like a tooth abcess, or injury with tooth extraction or pressure on the nerve. Certain calcium or vit B deficiencies can also cause numbness in the face. Stress and panic attacks can cause needles and pins around the mouth and on the tongue.
