I have never had numbness but did have burning hot taste in my mouth for months after Biaxin, another strong antibiotic. Pharmacist said it was a side effect of any antibiotic and suggested eating yogurt 2 to 3 times a day for a few weeks and a mouthrinse called Biotene, no alcohol, it has enzymes. It helped alot and cleared it up. May take a week or 2. She said this effect comes up from your stomach into your throat and mouth. Hope this helps. Biotene available at most drugstores and mass retail stores.
