Swollen throat and tongue

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen throat and tongue


Avatar f tn By the next day I had white ridges on the side of my tongue and my tongue was very swollen. The pain on my tongue and back of throat was so bad I could not eat anything. I called the dentist and he said to rinse with salt water and I should be fine. Well it took over 5 days before I had any relief. On my second visit I had the post put in. I asked the dentist why did that happen to my mouth and he simply said sometimes it does.

My neck (under the jaw) also hurts. It's actually becoming more difficult to talk because the spot under my tongue has swelled so much. It's in my way. It's hard to eat. The spot on my neck is so sore that it hurts to open my mouth very far and it is uncomfortable to move my head to either side.

Avatar n tn I currently am suffering from a sore tongue and swollen gums and lymph nodes on the left side of my mouth. My tongue has bothered me for about 2 months, now my gums and lymph nodes on that same side has been swollen. Could you please tell me what I can do to help this go away.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that my thrush was caused by antibiotics taken more than two months ago? I took a course of cefixime in February and then in March a course of ciprofloxacin for 10 days and again cefixime for other 10 days. I got a slightly white tongue about one week after finishing my anibiotics.
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 Also do you know If my symptoms of a swollen and discoloured tongue are assocaited with herpes and would this appear within 1 to 3 days?
Avatar n tn Started out 15 days ago with a sore throat, vertigo, off and on with plugged nose every day and pressure in the ears, itching in ears. Yesterday the back of my tongue became very sore to the touch. Eyes watered to swallow it hurt so bad (glands not swollen). Didn't sleep last night from pain. Went to clinic as walk in and they did strep test, WBC, listened to my breathing and looked at my throat and ears.
Avatar n tn In the past couple of weeks I've had some really stressful oral problems. I started getting a sore throat about a month ago and it hasn't really gone away. My tongue was feeling tingly and itchy for a while and I had a hunch and decided to stop drinking lime juice and my tongue felt better. However, it continued to feel slightly swollen. Its been about three weeks now since I first started feeling symptoms and they've progressed.
Avatar n tn Hopefully this is the right forum. Well, for the past week or so i've noticed my tongue to be slightly swollen, or that there's a swollen feeling in my mouth. My tongue also has a slight white coating on the top and there are red spots towards the back of my tongue. My mouth has also been rather dry, requiring me to drink water every so often, and i've lost a good bit of my appetite.
Avatar n tn i had bad allergies a few weeks ago and the roof of my mouth and back of my tongue were inflamed and swollen. the repeated snuffling and throat clearing was the culprit because allergy pills and cooler weather cleared it up in a few days.
Avatar n tn I have had a swollen tongue for a week and a half now. My throat has hurt on and off and the glands in my neck get swollen also. I went to a Dr. and he put me on amoxicillan which did nothing. Then I went back and he put me on Cipor and a steroid. Today was cleaning the house and afterward my thoat hurt even more. Now the glands are swollen and I am having trouble swallowing. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn i also have a few down the side of my tongue right at the back and I have a sore throat and sometimes it feels like I have something stuck in my throat the sore throat gets worse when I drink coke and drys out what could this be?? Iv been to the doctor's and all they say is its normal and dont worry..this has been going on for over one month now please help.. one doctor said it could be throat ulcers and gave me month wash but didnt really help..
Avatar m tn ve also have gotten small red and white sores in my mouth underneath my tongue and on my lips (total of three or four). Besides the coating and sores, I still have swollen lymph nodes as well as some skin on the chest right below the neck being red, no texture change or bumps/lesions yet. Swallowing is not painful and I don't have a sore throat or cough anymore. Potential exposure would have been a little more than three weeks ago. Can I get some opinions?

Avatar n tn About 4 weeks ago, I had what I thought was strep throat (very sore swollen throat, a slightly swollen tongue, fever, muscle aches, headache, hoarse voice, difficulty/pain swallowing). I was given antibiotics and felt better for about a week after but now my tongue is bothering me. Also note: I never had strep, I just found out the swab was negative. Symptoms: - Swollen tongue, sometimes whole thing, sometimes feels like just the back/base part or just one side.
Avatar n tn m dating. Two days after our encounter, I woke up with a red, itchy throat, swollen tonsils and a white coating on my tongue. I also had all of the symptoms of a yeast infection. I went to my doctor to have all of the STD tests run and am awaiting the results. I also was given treatment for oral thrush and vaginal yeast. While these are slowly clearing, the swollen tonsils and redness in the throat have not improved at all. I've read that oral herpes can present as tonsillitis.
Avatar f tn Im a 16 year old female and i experiance tongue and jaw twitches really frequently within a day. It usually occurs when i read aloud or talk (basically any kind of speech). Once the twitches occur its an off/on thing. It affects my speech when im talking. When i try to talk when it twitches, my speech comes out in fragments. Its really wierd and it creeps me out! The twitching wont stop unless i stop talking and take a break making it hard to talk.
Avatar n tn Last night I had a sore throat, so I took some generic cough and sore throat reliever. This morning my sore throat is gone but I have a large swollen bump on the left side of my tongue, its darker in color than the rest of my tongue and has a tiny white spot in the middle of it. This has never occured before and I would like to know what this bump on my tongue is?
