Burning throat and tongue

Common Questions and Answers about Burning throat and tongue


Avatar m tn My main concern is the canker sore on the side of my tongue and the feeling like boogers are in my throat and there are some (causing it a slight difficulty to breath through the mouth). its white like a bump on the side (small). Im scared this may be thrush. I went to a doctor a week ago and i showed him my dry white tongue towards the end and he said its normal and is not by any chance thrush. the sore came later on after the visit.
Avatar m tn A month back I kissed a gal, after that I have a burning tongue and also burning throat. It's lasting for more than a month. What would be the problem? I'm really irritated because of this. Is it the symptom of HIV?
Avatar f tn Possibility of any drugs causing it or dry mouth, oral cancer, damage to the lingual nerve, and diabetes are the other causes for a burning tongue and if nothing else is found these should be explored. It can also be gastric reflux (ruled out in your case.

Avatar f tn my tongue is like white and like patchy with red little spots/pimples at the back and it like stings/burning sensation? can a doctor check it?
Avatar f tn Great news you are almost finished. But I had that burning tongue thing and was lucky enough to find something that worked. What I used was CARAFATE SUSP its very cheap and has been around forever. It is used for stomach ulcers and you need a prescription. So get your md to write Carafate Susp 8oz Sig: Use two tablespoonfuls in mouth swich for 1-2 minutes and then swallow as needed. After a day my tongue was improving. I never thought it would work.
Avatar n tn I have to go to a free clinic in our city because cannot afford to get on husbands insurance at work.I also have burning tongue and have went through menopause already which may have alot to do with it and also have acid reflux and on previcid. The clinic says one thing then another. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I take Nexium daily but my mouth and tongue stays on fire. I get up of the morning and my tongue feels like a piece of leather. I"ve been to multiple doctors and no one has ben able to tell me what it is or what may cause it. I have had no relief for the past 3 years. Does anyone know what this is?
Avatar f tn Yes, burning in your throat and sternum area is part of acid reflux. If the medication isn't helping let your doctor know this! Stomach acid backs up in your throat causing the burning. You need to address the white coating, with your doctor. Make sure you brush your tongue when you brush your teeth. Take care.
Avatar f tn For the last few weeks I have had burning in my tongue, roof of mouth and throat, and lips, and I think there is tingling there too...... Is this another ms sympton?
Avatar n tn Tonight I was just working n my laptop and all the sudden I got this intense burning sensation in my throat. I thought I was coming down with something. It felt like hot soup. It went away after 30 minutes, but keeps coming back. I also noticed this past week I had cancer sores in my mouth and my throat seemed sensitive when i would drink soda. I am kind of worried!
Avatar n tn The problem is on the second day at night when i took my second dose of the day an hour later my tongue started bleeding for no reason and looked irritated. I felt as though my whole tongue was burning and it looked unusually white. And then my throat started hurting and feels clogged with mucus. I went to the ER but the doctor couldn't figure it out and didn't think it was oral thrush even though I could scrape the white stuff off.
Avatar m tn Symptoms - depending on the muscle and the location of the trigger points - are a painful burning tongue (glossodynia), dry mouth, sores on the tongue, difficulty talking, a sore throat with no inflammation, pain on swallowing and the feeling that there is a something/lump stuck in the throat, and pain in the lower back teeth. Your voice may be hoarse. All these muscles function to open your mouth.
Avatar m tn Dear all, It's been about 2 weeks that my mouth, tongue and lips are burning. No fever and nor runny nose. No coughing, headaches, and any other symptoms. Today I saw my pharynx and found some red small scratches. I also feel some phlegm coming down from the nose to the throat. I took a tablespoon of honey and I felt relief. I'm experiencing a anxiety crisis and I'm wondering whether it could be due to that. Can you guys give me some orientation? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I'm on my 17th week of interferon and ribavarin and lately my tongue and throat feel dry and very sensitive...like a burning/stinging sensation. The Dr. doesn't say much about it. Matter of fact...pretty much anything..he sums up to side effects. For example...I have these bumpy red spots on my arms, neck and legs. They itch constantly and the surface of my skin has become leathery. My blood panel isn't to far out of whack..except my TSH which is a 45.1...where the normal range should be .
487969 tn?1249316891 For the very first symptoms I ever got before the extreme drying out became unbearable, was a very sore mouth and throat, tightness and burning, tingling too. Then it moved to my eyes, and then everywhere else. Sjogren's is another autoimmune disease and could be a possiblility for you. It is very hard to detect in the early stages however, it has taken 2 years for me to get diagnosed as it creeps in on you slowly. But it might be worth you mentionning it to your doc. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn This morning, however, I woke up and i could still feel it and I tried to just scrape it with my toothbrush but it was still there so I got a flash light and saw that I have mulitple bumps all over my tongue and on my throat. They are lighter than my normal color in my throat. On my tongue they are kind of blisterish looking. I'm just wondering how I could have gotten this? I'm pretty sure i've never had it before.
Avatar n tn I also sometimes get a bit of a sore throat with the tongue and have been very susceptible to colds/infections since tongue started. The only thing i have noticed is that drinking orange juice or chewing on a vitamin C tablet (just realised my tablets have added zinc and your doctor mentioned that) can make the sore tongue go away. I know i have low iron (20) although recently dropped to 15 despite taking iron tablets for the last two months.
Avatar n tn At this point, I can talk and no one has commented that anything sounds different, however the tongue tightness/stinging/burning and tight throat occurs all the time when I talk and is sometimes a struggle to keep talking. It also feels like I have a lump in my throat and I seem to wake up every morning trying to swallow the phlegm stuck in my throat. When I stop talking and/or eat something, it gradually relieves the discomfort.
Avatar f tn Hi! Wondering if this has to do with my thyroid being off & not taking my pill correctly ?? I am 37 yr old female. I have had hypothyroidism for 15+ yrs. I did get a blood test in Sept & said my levels were fine. How quick can they change? In the beginning of October I developed a red/burning tongue, red irritated spots in the roof of my mouth & some inside of cheek. I had burning tho down my throat that felt like I drank something very hot.
1179332 tn?1297482590 So I know this isn't a specific topic to CM but a some of you mentioned that you got thrush on your tongue after the surgery. My tongue has been bothering me for weeks, it's been burning and I've felt like I had dry mouth and just this gross taste in my mouth. Last night, it just drove me nuts so I took a flashlight and looked in there...I can't tell for sure how white it is in the back but there were definitely blisters back there. Plus, my tongue looks swollen to me.
Avatar n tn acutely burning tongue, tiny not noticeable spots on inside of lips, tip of tongue and around mouth, and blistery type extreemely sore bumps on palate mostly at front...am also starting to experience slight breathlessness and tightness in throat... it is very difficult to cope with..havnt been able to have a normal relationship with partner for fear of it being catching..and anyway would be too painful to kiss etc...its ruining my normally healthy life..
89559 tn?1234883865 You didn't say when you had surgery but perhaps swelling of your throat and burning tongue is an after surgery isue. Sorry I don't know. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications.
Avatar f tn First i started feeling like something is growing on my tongue, and 10 days later I went to an ENT who said i have some kind of fungus on my tongue and that is when some burning sensation came also. anyways i took medication diflucan and daktarin gel for a week. things looked better in my mouth but the burning senstation is still there.
