Sore tongue and throat

Common Questions and Answers about Sore tongue and throat


Avatar m tn Recently I have gotten a hoarse voice and today I woke up and my sore throat is starting to get better but my tongue is sore and on the back left side of my tongue I have a bump. I recently had a cavity filled but the sore throat came before I had that done. Thanks for any advice!
Avatar f tn Went to the clinic today,for bloodwork, showed them my mouth...they also think it's thrush. 2 new Rx. for that. Spent the day out with my mom yesterday, I think I was out too long. Last night and today, I feel sick, headachy nausea, increased fatigue.
Avatar f tn I'm on my 17th week of interferon and ribavarin and lately my tongue and throat feel dry and very 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 .
Avatar n tn Not much longer my throat became irritated and very red. My tongue has formed a yellow coating and red dots on the end. I eat a lot of very spicy food (everyday) and at first I thought the bumps might be irritated taste buds. I called my internal medicine doctor and they did a strep culture test and it came back negative but they gave me an antibiotic. Its been about a week and a half and I still have the same symptoms.
Avatar n tn I've been studying the throat and tongue thing for a bit and have some new information. The problems with the small sores on the tongue that seem like inflamed taste buds are generally caused by fungi and sometimes sugar feeding bacteria,(it can affect your throat as well). Those sores are listed as a symptom for stomach disorders like ulcers and acid reflux, something to do with stomach acid destroying good bacteria in your throat that keep the fungi and bad bacteria in check.
Avatar n tn Hi, last night I began having a strange type of pain under my tongue on the right side at the base of the mouth - the pain feels similar to a sore throat, but my throat isn't sore. I don't have a fever or swollen lymph glands. Also the pain hasn't gotten worse. I can only feel the pain if I move the tongue up or if I swallow a large amount of food. My throat doesn't have any swelling or redness or whiteness, my voice is still the same, ears are fine and gums are fine.
Avatar n tn I'm really concerned that after almost 3 weeks of medication, the sore throat, sore tongue and sensation of food stuck in my throat are still there. It is so frightening to not know what is going on inside your body. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Thanks.
Avatar f tn For about a week now,my tongue feels like I burned it. My throat is sore, but mostly I can't talk right or taste because of my sore tongue. What could I do to releave this situation?
Avatar m tn I have had oral sex with guys who are pretty trustworthy that they don't have any STDs but I am worrying now if it is possible that I could have something, or if I need my tonsils removed or what! I just got a cold a week and a half ago and just got over it, but my sore throat seems to be coming and going. I am so confused with what to do.
Avatar f tn It may be a reaction to the mediation you took. I was on an antibiotic that burned my tongue and tongues heal very fast--but this took 3 weeks! For relief I rinsed my mouth with organic coconut oil (may or may not be wise-I have no idea) but it took the pain away for a bit.
Avatar m tn It seems to be getting very irritated because when I eat it rubs against my teeth and makes it worse...Everytime I talk also it hurts and now my throat is very sore. Not sure what it is because I cannot see or feel it but I know it is some kind of bump.
Avatar f tn copegus - i have some of the normal sx but all of a sudden i have a very sore throat, roof of mouth and sore, raw tongue. my tongue seems to be very dry and it burns. i still have my tonsils and think i have gotten tonsilitis (sore throat & hard to swallow) this has been going on for a week now - any suggestions? anyone experience this before?
Avatar m tn I read about a symptom, and the next day, guess what, I had it. Sore throat? Yep. Ulcers in the mouth? You bet. Enlarged lymph nodes? Sure, I thought so. Fever? Again, I thought so. Night sweats? More than once. Weight loss? No lie, I lost 15 pounds in a month. I won't go on, you get the idea. Funny thing was, once I figured out I didn't have HIV, all of those "symptoms" just seemed to go away.
Avatar n tn Why is my tongue so sore? I have dry mouth from taking prescriptions and my tongue over a period of time has become very sore and sensitive to salt or pepper or spicy food.
Avatar n tn Uh oh I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the sore(s) on his tongue are due to the interferon and nothing (and I mean nothing) I did all 72 weeks could get rid of them and they HURT like hell and really made me insane. My GI had no idea what it was and wanted to biopsy my tongue (oh no thank you very much I can't imagine THAT pain) but the second I went to see Dr. Jacobson he knew. he's seen patients that have had them so bad they've had to quit.
Avatar n tn So, here is why I am writing this. I still have that sore throat but in my chest feeling and now my tongue feels swollen and my throat as well (So much so that I'm starting to snore at night-which my husband finds amusing), my whole torso just feels achey, when I wake up most mornings both sides just below my ribs in the back are ackey. Allergies?? Nothing?? Please point me in the right direction.
Avatar m tn Now that has subsided I have come down with a sore throat on the right side only. No dripping so they say. The pain is mild and went away for a couple of days but now it is back. I notice this morning it is rally not my throat but a smooth lump far back on my tongue that is tender. I also noticed my teeth ache once and a while. Any thought?
Avatar m tn So in the past week and a half I began to get what looked like strep in the back of my throat. Swollen tonsils and little white dots accompanied by of course a sore throat. Usually when this occurs it comes with a fever this time it didn't. I then started to notice bumps on the back of my tongue followed by about 2 days of my tongue slightly swelling. I found that abnormal for having strep throat but figured it might be just a different strain.
Avatar m tn Hi, I performed an unprotected cunnilingus on an escort girl 3 weeks ago (protected fellatio and protected intercourse) My tongue hurt a few hours later, then had a sore throat and ended with geographic tongue now (two painless round spots on my tongue, they were gone 2 days ago and I have a new one today) Can this be an STD (HIV/Syphilis)? I softly brushed my teeth 3 hours before the incounter and only drunk water. 3 days after the incounter, my spit smelled like vagina.
Avatar n tn what would be a cracking or popping noise in my throat then it got really sore can't eat or drink.
Avatar n tn Now my tongue gets white at times and my throat is constantly sore on the left side with a small white sort of hard spot in the back on that side,same side as nostril that is the most stuffy. I am scared it could be oral cancer. I do smoke which is stupid!! I am going to definately quit.Ever since I had a accident involving my left rib area and left side, I have had constant problems especially with nasal passages. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
Avatar f tn a clicking sound when i swallow and some kind of a strawberry tongue ( small patches on the top of my tongue). i had protected vaginal sex 5 weeks ago,and im worried i might have HIV.i am afraid the condom ruptured and i didnt notice.this sore throat is driving me to panic all the's not getting it an hiv symptom ? they say yes,,,please any suggestions im going crazy !
Avatar f tn hi i have had a sore throat since Aug 13 to Aug 27 and its still hurts...the last time i gave my bf oral sex was Aug 1 or something...but i don't know if i got anything from i have notice some big white bump on the back of my tongue that hurt and it feels like something stuck there i have had fevers between the dates above and now i believe i also have a yeast infection i don't know whats going on...
Avatar n tn However, I kissed another girl this week and she now has a very sore tongue. I should mention that she burned her mouth and tongue from pizza on Monday so that could be her cause. Still, it is now Friday and I still have the burning and now she has a sore tongue that I am concerned that I caused. Out of concern that I might have contracted something back on Dec. 15 or 16, I am contacting you. Does this seem like an STD? What else could be causing it? Thanks again.
