Ross Hauser, MD, and Brian Hutcheson, DC discuss the nerves in the neck and face that affect tongue feeling and function, and when staying in prolonged positions can impair the nerves. The cervical instability one can experience during various movements and positions can cause painful symptoms like burning mouth, numb tongue, and difficulty speaking or moving the tongue.
