numbness in mouth
I have been experiencing tingling and numbness (almost like I have had a dentists injection) on the walls and roof of my mouth, tongue and gums. This is the fourth day that I have the same thing. Food also tastes too salty (even sweet stuff), my mouth is parched and there is a white film on my tongue.
Can you help?

You may have an infection in the parotid or saliva gland - let your doctor have a look as you may need antibiotics.
