I am 36 years old and a light smoker. Three weeks ago I had a wisdom tooth removed and everything went well. A week ago, I woke up babbling and stuttering - twice in that week. And now for the last two days I have numbness on the side where the tooth was removed. I called several dentists and they all agreed that this numbness isn't related to the extraction because it was an upper extraction (no chance of nerve damage).
People are suggesting that I may have had two mini strokes. The numbness is causing me to not be able to taste food on the left side, and my left cheekbone feels slightly bruised.
Is this related to the dental work or from a mini-stroke?
