There are a huge host of things that can cause tongue lesions. I see from your profile history that you have Hep C and are currently getting treatment for it, with interferon and ribavirin, I assume. I did find an article published in July, 2008 describing the association of oral lichen planus with interferon treatment for Hepatitis C in three patients.
The inner lining of my lower lip and under my tongue is very irritated. Every few days it seems like old tissue gets replaced by new tissue. Any ideas?
Hi all, I am at week 15 of pegasys and I've recently been having very painful red sores all over my tongue. Especially around the outside. Not only is it getting impossible to eat even the blandest of foods, but it's getting very hard to speak. (some might say that's an asset) :) When any movement occurs in my mouth, it is unbearible!! It's like my tongue is trapped in an inferno, with the feel of dry ice pulling the skin off when I move it inside my mouth.

There are little tiny red dots that have appeared on the tip and round the outer edge of my tongue and my tongue feels like it is on fire or really burning.

4 years in the military so i not much of a believer in coincidence. If you could provide intel on the geo tongue and if its an indicator of anything, and the info from the tests i was able to take. I should be back in the US in about a month which will make 4 months and am gonna have a doc do a EIA, but i wanted to know how much confidence there is in a 4 week non reactive EIA, and a 10 week oraquick.
However, this also could be due to a lack of B vitamins, now, don't laugh, if you do not get enough of the B vitamins, one of the symptoms is a sore tongue, and if left untreated by not taking them, it can get worse. I would try taking a good, food grade B vitamin complex, also, get some Brewers yeast, it can be obtained at any health food store, this is chock full of all the B vitamins, amino acids and other important nutrients and minerals. It taste good too, I love it on cottage cheese.
Has anyone experienced any numbness or tingling on their tongue? This started a couple of days ago and I've lost 60-70% of my sense of taste. My big concern here is that cooking and just food in general is a huge hobby of mine and am responsible for all of it in our household. I don't want to even consider the prospect of losing my sense of taste for good. It would be a huge blow. Does anyone have any input here? Any experience to share? Thanks in advance.
My condition doesnt seem to be any of those causes. it seems to be clusters of canker sores. possibly due to excess chewing of Dentyne Fire gum. the irritation caused by the spicy gum, produced the now apparent sores and the grooved texture. im rinsing with salt water and bearing the pain until hopefully it clears up. I have a very balanced diet, 80% vegetarian, and take a multivitamin everyday. its unlikely to be vitamin issue.
It is an awful thing to 'have to put up with' I also have ulcers on the back of my tongue and roof of my mouth, this cannot be normal.

On occasions the tongue numbness is really bad but usually not long lasting but of late often my tongue on the underneath but just feels numb or like pressure or tight sensation. When this occurs I seem to have some type of head pain but more like a random shooting pain. I do sometimes get vertigo with my headaches as well and on occasion I have vomited when I have had had a headache at the back of my head (base) near neck.
Man am I glad to see other people with tongue problems. I have had pain on the side of my tongue for nearly 1.5 years - both on the left side and the right side. I have talked to two general MD's, one ENT, and two dentists about it and nobody can seem to give me a clue as to what's wrong. The left side of my tongue always seems sensitive. It seems to be foliate pappitis to me but what do I know. I do know that I have cut wayyyy back on sugar (about 90%) and things have improved.
I have had the same symptoms as many of the others who have posted - various parts of my face, especially lips and tongue, sometimes eyelids or chin, swell up to painful proportions for no apparent reason. I also sometimes get unexplained and very itchy hives on my body. It usually takes roughly 18 hours for it to disappear entirely, sometimes less if I take enough Prednisolone early enough.
bad taste in mouth, burning sensation in tongue, gastritis, fatigue (chronic fatigue) phlegm in my throat, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sore and red throats , fissures in my tongue (I was told by a dentist that I have geographic tongue, how can I have this 28 years after I was born? and it hurts! I never had this before), my tongue hurts, it literally feels sensitive, the tip of it its very sensitive.
Pain and burning on right side of tongue, pain in top and bottom teeth, jaw and ear, painless swelling of lymph tissue near right jaw and very frequent headaches that feel like they're going right through my eyeball. When I read that you felt OK in the morning but progressively worse as the day wore on, I almost fell out of my chair because this is the first time I've encountered someone who's experiencing that same phenomena.
D because tests showed #7. What can it be? My tongue is sore all of the time-I don't have to eat or drink anything to cause it.
i use peroxide to brush my teeth because i have sores that come and go on the right side of my mouth to the gums and underneath and along side my tongue on the right side. i had a dentist tell me this was more than likely a vitamin deficiency of some sort but after all this time i tend to think it is possibly an acid surplus. i have been on celebrex for joint pain, effexor for a spastic colon, and the only timing i can relate all of this to is the death of my mother at Christmas 2008.
Aside from the bump, how is the appearance of your tongue? Noted any differences? If you are a woman, are experiencing a hormonal imbalance? Good suggestions already listed but I would also stay away from fluoridated toothpaste and mouthwash (salt water is good) until you feel better.
Obviously my tongue is being interpreted incorrectly somewhere along the line since I can touch my tongue and feel nothing, but it always feels in my mind like my tongue is on fire and dry on one side. I'm dry-mouthed and thirsty at all times since my surgery. I am a life long desert dweller and well versed in dehydration. I drink over a gallon of water a day and never "feel wet" in there anymore on my right side. Just cotton mouthy.
Some people can’t get enough spiciness in food – they generously douse their food with hot sauce, savoring that burning of the tongue that follows. For others, even the subtlest hint of spice can set their mouth on fire and leave them guzzling water to put out the flames. Whether you love the sensation or hate it, what is it about spicy foods that triggers that burning sensation? The answer: Capsaicin, a natural compound found in the seeds of certain plants, puts the heat in hot foods.
- sores started at tip of tongue - was prescribed an anti-biotic by a doctor, but worsened the problem - sores advanced covering 1/3 of tongue - cracks developed in the middle of tongue - strong burning sensation - developed a metal taste in mouth After mentioning this to an Indian friend of mine, she recommended using pure salt (i.e. the salt granules, not diluted in water). In just two weeks I have improved dramatically; the sores and cracks have disappeared!
Usually, the gabapentin wears off in 12 to 15 hours and the rest of the time my tongue feels like it's on fire, not to mention that I sometimes bite it...guess that's when it's swollen. I've had this a year now and it has gotten "very old". I know others are dealing with much more difficult problems, and I should be "tougher", but it is so very frustrating. Wishing you many blessings.
I have had a lot of swelled up taste buds all over my tongue that are painful. Every morning when I wake up I have white spots under my tonuge towards the tip and one big one on the back side. This is all very painful and I can't figure out what it may be. The white spots seem to go away as the day goes on. I have never had this happen before. I have been avoiding spicy and sour foods as it does cause quit a lot of discomfort.
do not seem to be correlated with the onset of this) - I'm now getting these weird, dull warming/burning sensations in my lower abdomen (not where the pain is - more medial) - I've gotten a couple of recurrent UTI's most recently (but this was months after the above symptoms began) - Last week, I had a large number of canker sores in my mouth (I usually get one every so often, but my entire mouth was swollen) - My tongue has been white (something that tells me I'm sick with something), and my t
