I've experienced this feeling before on occasions but these last couple days have felt more persistent.

My jaw has been feeling numb/tired along my bottom jaw line as well as under my chin. Since I put on some weight I have a bit of a double chin (so embarrassing sorry) and the numbNess feels like it goes over that area of my chin also. I've also experienced that in my arms. Sometimes they will feel so tired like I over exerted them even though I haven't. Does that make sense? I can't get into the dr until Tuesday which is 5 days away. I need some kind of answers before I decide to go to urgent care.

Yesterday I kept feeling a numbing feeling in my right side of my gums. I do have cavities and stuff could that cause that kind of thing?

    numbeness of face/chin should not be taken lightly......

    Do you have dizziness, vision problems or slurred speech, 

    If yes to any, it is requird you go to doctor or emergency.

    I've read that jaw pain could be a sign of a heart attack in women.  I'm no dr just throwing that out there.  Maybe an ekg?  My other thought would be tmj.  Good luck

      Idk if it would be tmj. Terrified of heart attacks!! I am wondering if it's stress induced/anxiety. I've already woken up this morning with like tingling/numbness/tiredness in what feels like the muscles of my face. It scares the hell out of me. I think if it were a heart attack it would have happened already right? I'm on like day 9 of this same thing 😣 I just wanna know I'm okay
