I recently went off of anbitioics (about the week before Christmas). My doctor was to send me the Zhang herbs, but due to a mix-up, I did not receive them. Finally, I just received the herbs (about a month later than I was supposed to). However, since I am having new flare-ups (numbness in my tongue and right side of mouth and intermittent numbness in my left extremities), he put me back on Ceftin. I'm not really sure--has anyone been prescribed the Zhang herbs while they are also taking antibiotics? I wouldn't think he would send me $170 of herbs, even though a month late, unless he meant for me to take them now, right????
And has anyone else had numbness in their mouth? It started with about the front 1/3 of my tongue, but it now feels like my entire tongue is numb and the right side of my lip, gums, cheek, etc., as though I am just coming from the dentist office after having received Novacaine for a cavity filling. And also notice decrease in being able to taste food, as well as food feeling as though it is "hairy" or "furry." No trouble swallowing, eating, or talking, although am noticing drooling out of the right side of my mouth.
