Tongue and dehydration

Common Questions and Answers about Tongue and dehydration


Avatar m tn The question is not clear, you say excessive watering of mouth and then about dehydration. Signs of dehydration are a relative dry tongue.
1711722 tn?1356491154 Today I am sending my husband to Walmart to get a humidifier and see if that will help. It is getting really cold and dry right now in Kansas and that is not helping. I have sores in the corner of my mouth & inside my nose, I am using saline to keep moisture but it is barely helping. My Sinus' are swollen and there isnt much coming out, but I am on a Z-pak too right now, so I am sure that is helping with the drying thing. Im not as wheezy though.
Avatar n tn he has chills and feels cold, but no fever and no sweating. 4 days later he is back in v.a. with severe dehydration, but he hasnt thrown up since that night, still no sweating, drinking tons, no diahrea....what other things could be causing the dehydration?...oh yeah, his heart and liver seem fine, his dr is considering his kidneys, but the v.a. emergency team didnt seem interested in the kidneys at all...and would dehydration cause speech difficulties?

Avatar n tn If you're feeling thirsty it can be dehydration and it can even be a sign of Diabetes. You should see your doctor.
Avatar m tn Tech in Mechanical. I feel my tongue dry almost always and find it hard to speak. Also my tongue is filled with whitish material (fungi) and it gives foul smell (Bad Breadth). The problem gets enhanced under mental and physical workload. I am having this problem for around past two years; sometime it decreases automatically when not under workload and sometime gets enhanced. Please suggest about the type of food to take, precautions to take and prescribe some medicine.
Avatar n tn Hi burda, Yes your tongue and globus problem can be an association to a Herpes simplex. Concurrent infection causes immunodeficiency/nutritional deficiency which can cause ulcers in oral cavity.
Avatar n tn I have a white tongue, it is not outrageous like the google image pictures of thrush, but its the middle part of my tongue, and it goes all the way down the back of it, and it is white and fury. I can scrape it off, and there is no bleeding afterwards. It is just like this white fur is growing off my tongue. I have been really thirsty lately because in my dorm I don't drink a lot of water, so maybe dehydration is a reason, but I also am coughing up flem. Any idea what this is?
150807 tn?1194958915 These ulcers are the worst along the back and sides where my teeth naturally rest closely to my tongue. And they added dryness in my mouth from the medications only makes the ulcers worse. So I guess I just wanted to say... Sorry :( I know how you feel as do many many others and you're definitely not alone on this one. Lots of people have different things you can try, so keep checking your post responses.
Avatar f tn Everytime I drink alcohol, I wake up with a numb feeling in my tongue the next day. I can talk normally and everything but it just feels weird. The degree of numbness depends on the amount of consumption. I am not a heavy drinker but only drink socially and on ocassion. If it is an allergic reaction, why would I all of a sudden develop it when I have been drinking for years? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.

Avatar f tn got endoscopy next month not sure if connected but last few days got white tongue worse on the outside like track marks can't scrape it off. if it's thrush is it scrapable?
Avatar m tn Brush your mouth and tongue with toothpaste on a soft brush but you can also brush with baking soda. Brush the tongue with this. Avoid eating and drinking sugar as it feeds yeast. Drink mint tea or other tea without sweetener. Neem toothpaste may help as well. Take a probiotic.
Avatar n tn Now for the last 2 weeks my tongue has been swollen. At first my tongue felt sore and there was a tenderness right under my chin, but no swollen lymph node. I went to the ENT again and he prescribed a oral steroid, prednisone, which I took for a week. The soreness and the tenderness went away, but my tongue is still swollen. I can eat and drink just fine. I'm rarely drink (for the past 3 weeks, not at all) and don't smoke at all.
Avatar n tn My main problem is that I have something like tongue ulcers, white and dry tongue in the mornings. Like white lines most in the tip of my tongue, and they are worse in the mornings. So I got a gastroscopy and was diagnosed with Pylori. They gave me Omez + amox + clarithromycin for 10 days... So my "mouth problems" symptoms went away while I was taking clarithromycin for pylori but after I ended my treatment for they came back! Thats it.
Avatar n tn My 23 yr old son has an orange tongue as well lately. His tongue first turned white and bumpy during a bad sore throat that lasted 3 days. Then his tongue turned yellow-now it's full blown orange. It doesn't hurt. I have noticed a common theme of the orange tongue in previous posts by people having a sore throat. He also uses Crest Pro Health mouthwash, but has stopped in the last 2 days using it. He doesn't use a teeth whitening toothpaste.
Avatar n tn She has also been having some dizziness with this numb tongue and a twitch beneath her left eye. She is terrified that it is a tumor or something extremely serious. Does anyone have any advice?
Avatar m tn most recently i've noticed white bumps on the side of my mouth near the back (one or two) that kind of come and go.. also my tongue has a thick yellow coating when i wake up and is thicker at the back and my taste buds seem swollen. i feel like im producing an above normal amount of saliva as well.. I used to smoke a lot of marijuana but quit about a month ago i still smoke the odd cigarette. I also had unprotected oral sex with a pretty questionable girl a few months ago..
Avatar f tn when i got home she was acting strange, salivating from the mouth quite a bit, very sore, horrible smelling breath, and very mucusy drool.. the vet examined her and said she has an ulcer on her tongue.. which i could not see since she wouldnt let me look into her mouth.. i am a vet assistant so i should have known.. anyways.. she will not eat seeing as her tongue is very sore and i just want to help her.. i kno Hills diet A/D is more or less a big mac for any pet but i dont have any atm..

1744544 tn?1311303462 I chew my tongue, excessively, and I cant control it. This has been going on for almost 2 years now. I've been seen at several hospitals, I've switched my Primary Care Physician 4 times now, and I've done research, and I still can not find any answers to what has become a very painful annoyance in my life. The Hospitals and PCP's have all told me that this is not related to me having Vaginal Herpes, but I dont understand what else it could be.
Avatar n tn Then I was sent to an Ear, Nose, Throat Specialist. He did not have any answers either. He suggested that I use a tongue scraper and he prescribed an antimicrobial rinse. He said it's just something that I have to learn to live with. I still have an orange tongue though. It's been frustrating trying to figure out the cause of this ailment. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn In fact I think I will definitely have to follow the advice below as I have recently finished a course of Trimethoprim for a UTI and my mouth is dry and my tongue a bit coated. So all in all, you could say we have helped each other. LOL. So thanks for YOUR help. Well, with you asking all these questions, I have researhced it and I have learned something about Candida that I didn't know before. So thanks for that.
Avatar n tn My tongue has a coating of white on it, not sure what it is. Your mouth is dry and sticky probably from dehydration. I have also gotten white crystals around my mouth from too much salt in diet and dehydration.
Avatar m tn Hi, A clinical examination is must for accurate diagnosis and treatment. Bacteria accumulation on tongue can cause bacterial infections and fungal growth called oral thrush. A yellow coated tongue can also be an early sign of black, hairy tongue a harmless condition seen when papillae grow long .A yellow coated tongue is also a side effect of liver or gallbladder problems. It is also aggravated by poor oral hygiene, fever, mouth breathing, dehydration, and some types of medications.
Avatar n tn I have high stress and free floating anxiety and my tongue has been white for about 5 years now.
Avatar m tn They are not exactly painful unless they are prodded but I'm concerned about what they may be? A side effect of the dryness and dehydration? Cold sore on the tongue? Does anyone have any previous experience with something like this?
Avatar m tn Try taking some iron supplements and multivitamins for some days and see if the symptoms persist. Dehydration is also a contributing factor. So drink plenty of water and see. If you have a post nasal drip, then this too could give a feeling of dryness at the back of the tongue. Try steam inhalation and see. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined if the symptoms persist. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn White tongue is a perplexing problem but usually not serious. Dehydration is the most likely cause if medical factors have been ruled out (thrush). Be sure you drink plenty of water. And, a tongue scrapper can be your best friend. The white is plaque that forms on the tongue just like on your teeth. Get a tongue brush and try brushing your tongue with paste. Then use the scrapper. Keep yourself well hydrated (8 glasses of water a day) and the white should disappear. Hope this helps.
