Tingling and bad taste
I have recently had a root canal filling on the lrft side of my face and now suffer from a horrible taste and burning sensation on the right side of my mouth. (stops at the tip of my tongue) Can this be related?
It is unlikely that a procedure done on one side of your mouth would affect the other side of your mouth. Problems with nerves, medications, etc. usually do not cross the midline. However, I can not diagnose your condition with such limited information and no examination so I would suggest a consult with your dentist or physician.
