Anyone else tongue sort of fizz the whole time?

Not sure if WD or related to neck stiff.

Gets worse when even slightly stretch neck or back which also causes odd liquid heat down spine and through head that feels dangerous. Like something pulling on spinal cord or vagus nerve.

I’m not sure about “fizzing tongue” but I definitely have had tongue symptoms since jumping off (didn’t show up until about a week after my taper). For me it feels like a burned or scalded tongue. Not until the last couple weeks has it dulled down in severity (now that I think of it, it does feel kind of like a light “fizzing” sensation at this stage, but before, it was like I burned my tongue on hot coffee). It’s located specifically on the tip and edges of my tongue. In addition, I have experienced episodes where I produce an excess amount of saliva for no apparent reason, and I think I am tongue thrusting to accommodate the feeling, so I sometimes will have a scalloped tongue appearance. When it’s at it’s worst, I also have a sensation like my jaw is tremoring (not visible to eye but it’s a very unnerving feeling).

The tongue/mouth sensations have been my most persistent symptoms (in windows it’s even there, just dialed back some)
