For years people have recognized the natural effects of celery in "calming the nerves." Celery. In fact in the 1897 Sears Catalog the company offered a nerve tonic made from celery. And before that Hippocrates (the father of medicine) noted that celery calms the nerves. Celery is high in calcium and it is widely recognized for its medicinal effects.

Most likely the numbing effect you're noticing is from the Eugenol in the celery. It is the same compound found in higher concentrations in cloves.

Benadryl makes your mouth numb because it has a compound known as dioxococain. Very similiar to regular cocain. If you chew it up your mouth will feel like you just took a gummy of powder. Only difference is you wont get all sped up in fact you will get tired and pass out.

do you mean the injection to numb your mouth so you don't feel it? then yes, unless you don't want it.

Your front teeth might feel numb if you just got an injection from the dentist. They may also feel numb if you hit your head and have nerve damage.

Actually you can do cocaine through your vagina. The mucous membrane will absorb it and make you feel numb down there as if you were to put it on the gums of your mouth. Some women do this right before sex to make the feeling more pleasurable.

I heard if you put salt and lemon juice and mix it up and the keep the juice in your mouth, your tongue goes numb. And there are some medicines from the store like ORAJEL that will make your mouth numb. Hope this helped!

No, it's not normal to feel numb when you've removed a tampon. Your vagina doesn't have much in the way of feeling so it would be unusual to be able to feel that your vagina was numb to begin with. If your vagina feels numb then consider you may be sensitive to something in the tampons you're using.

To me it felt like someone was drilling and spraying cold water in my mouth. I was numb so I didn't really feel any pain.
