Tongue bite

Common Questions and Answers about Tongue bite


Avatar m tn Cleaned her up and saw 3 puncture or bite marks on the end of her tongue and her bottom jaw seems to be paralyzed. What kind of bite would do this and do you think it is permanant or temp.
Avatar f tn My sister told me just to bite them off. I had more sense then to bite them off. The thought disgusted me. They hurt as well. Some are at the tip, while others are off to the side. When I explained this to my mother, she thought it was from my braces. But to me that doesn't make sense. So that's why I resorted to here. I didn't want a doctors visit, and I figured my mom would dismiss the idea of seeing a doctor because she always assumes it's "nothing"... Help?
Avatar n tn Is there any surgery, therapy, etc. that would restore the capabilities of my tongue? Though not serious, I occasionally bite the right side of my tongue, salivate excessively, swallow prematurely.
Avatar f tn We get to have all kinds of cool sensations others do not have. I have spasms and bite my tongue all the time. I know I am doing it, I bite hard and can't stop. I thought I was having seizures when it started. Funny what you can get used to.

Avatar f tn A red circle round a bite is a hallmark of a bite from an insect transmitting Lyme disease. It resembled a "bulls-eye". In such a case an immediate regiman of antibiotics is required to prevent a lifetime of misery. The bulls-eye will disappear so it is important to get it looked at IMMEDIATELY by a physician with experience in treating Lyme disease. Immediately means as of yesterday. Not an appointment a week from now.
Avatar n tn I have gotten a wierd mark on my tongue, like a bite. I read on the internet and thing it may be "geographic tongue" syndrome. I don't know, I took a few pictures a few days ago. It looks like a bite, it felt like it was a bite but I don't remember being bitten or things in that order. Maybe I bited myself while I slept. I am not sure. Maybe you can tell me what this is ? I have updated photos of my tongue on imageshack Here they are:
Avatar f tn I did not think that I had bitten the tongue and it certainly was not sore at the time or the next day. Usually when you bite your tongue it leaves a mark or pain of some sort. I guess these symptoms are a little different in that respect. Weird things certaianly happen.
Avatar n tn It can also be due to tongue bite and will be associated some soreness. If it does not regress within a few days then do consult your Doctor. Hope this helps. Take care & good luck.
Avatar m tn Thank you Teak. I know oral sex is not really a risk, just with the fresh bite on my tongue and some pre fluids I was a little worried. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn I have two flesh/white bumps like tags on each side of my tongue. The one on the right has been there for 2 yrs. The dentist looks at it each time I go for a cleaning and says it doesn't look like anything to worry about. Now one showed up on the left about 2 weeks ago. Sometime I bite them when chewing and it makes them sore for a couple days. Any idea what they could be?
Avatar n tn He told me that there was a lot of bite marks on the sides of my tongue.After checking in a mirror i can see it has a jagged edge on both sides.He recommended that i see a specialist.I attended the local hospital,maxillofacial/oral dept when i recieved my appointment.After the consultation it was recommended that there could be a problem and that i return at a later date.On the return appointment he would put a local anesthetic in my tongue a cut away a small sample to be sent off for analysis.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced tongue pain? Several months ago I was having pins/needles on the tip of my tongue and way back along the upper part of my throat. Thias subsided for quite some time and all of a sudden the other night I had pain along the bottom right side of my tongue. It felt so strange, not excruciating, just enogh to be bothersome. Last night I had the same pain, but acoss the entire bottom and all the way to the back of my tongue - almost made me feel like I was going to gag.
Avatar f tn another thing...the riba also makes me bite my tongue..thats a drag...
Avatar n tn At the time, I had an enlarged tastebud on my tongue and my gums were a little sore from previous teeth whitening from a couple of days before. The next day, I thought about what happened and got really freaked out. A couple of weeks later, I got sick (I might have been 'expecting' it...). Right now, I have slightly swollen lymph nodes of the neck, nausea and missed period (no chance of pregnancy).
1744544 tn?1311303462 Your dentist will give you a mouth guard and this will prevent you from chewing/biting on your tongue. I have the same problem, my tongue looks disgusting because of this. I understand what youre going through.
Avatar n tn If you do have any teeth that need repairing or have rough edges, then get that sorted out by the dentist. Sometimes a jagged tooth can catch on the tongue or your bite me be out of alignment. Also do not eat highly spiced foods, this will just aggravate the condition. But drink plenty of water. Doesn't actually make the tongue feel any less sore, but it keeps you well hydrated.
Avatar m tn what are the chances that I could have been exposed to HIV if my date A) had HIV, and B) also had a bite or a sore or a cut in her mouth that somehow transmitted blood into mine. I should note that I didn't taste any blood or anything. Thank you very much for your help!
1744544 tn?1311303462 I bite my tongue all around the edges. I stop once I notice what I am doing. I wake up in the middle of the night from the pain my tongue is in. I need help.
Avatar n tn The couging has subsided, but there's still phelm in my throat. Yesterday I noticed that my tongue was coated in an yellowy/orange color!! I scraped it, and brushed it, but to no avail. Is this a common ailment? Anybody??? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the Forum. I'll be happy to comment. A "love bite" is somewhere between a kiss and a full thickness bite and is at most a very, very low risk event. In the instance that you describe, you do not know that your partner had HIV and despite her past history and activities it is statistically unlikely that she had HIV. It is clear however that there is NO risk whatsoever from kissing, even deep or aggressive kissing that does not result in skin breakage.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have a tongue that is too long? I have an anterior open bite. I often feel that my tongue would stick out pass the incisors if I relax. I am saving up and planning to get braces to correct the open bite, but would I need to be checked out by specialist about the tongue first?
Avatar f tn The resulting weal is about one-inch across, and still bright red and itchy - much more than my usual local reaction to a mosquito or blackfly bite. What worried me is, at the time of the bite itself, my throat got scratchy -- but only for about 15 minutes. There was no tingling feeling, only scratchy, and that feeling went away pretty quickly. Does this sound like a systemic reaction, or is it way too mild?
Avatar n tn You could be having seizures in your sleep. Every time I have a seizure I bite my tongue, and I didn't start having seizures until I was in my early 30s. When I have seizures in my sleep, sometimes the only clue is the bite injuries to my tongue. It's worth asking your doctor.
