    Default tongue piercing

    hi guys, i got my tongue re-pierced around a little more than 3 weeks ago as soon as the needle went through i knew something was wrong as i felt really dizzy & faint (i have 13 piercings & have never once felt this way). that night i decided to take it out as it was pierced way off to the right side, it bled quite a bit but thatís normal as it was a fresh piercing. the next day the swelling was really bad and the following day underneath my tongue was majorly bruised & numb, i went to the doctors & got given antibiotics. the bruising eventually went away within a few days. my concern is that the swelling, numbness & tingling feeling has never went away accompanied by a sore throat & swollen glands. there is also a sort of triangular indent at the bottom of my tongue, and every time i move my tongue this one part of my tongue feels as if itís getting pinched (a nerve maybe?). my lips also feel very numb. iím unsure if anyone has ever experienced this. iím thinking it might be nerve damage but again iím not sure. if anyone has any advice on what this could be it would be much appreciated, thanks!

    Maybe you have the wrong jewelry- is it the one were the bottom piece screws in? Those ones have to be cleaned and tightened often.
