Tongue sore on sides

Common Questions and Answers about Tongue sore on sides


Avatar n tn I have these weird, raised, and various sized bumps on my tongue towards the back and on both sides of my tongue, on the lower half. My tongue feels swollen on both lower sides of my tongue towards the bottom... It is somewhat painful... Just very irritating. Please, someone tell me what is wrong!! I am a very paranoid person in nature and the slightest oddity of my body stresses me out. All I can say for sure is that these bumps are not normal and werent there in the past.
Avatar m tn I have sore tongue for 2 months, tongue looks normal (no white or red patches). Parts of the tongue feels asif you just burnt your tongue drinking not coffee. Months also feels dry. I have seen doctors & Dentists and they have no answer . all the blood tests are normal.
Avatar f tn Is anyone else having any issues with their mouth? My tongue is sore and it appears to have tiny sores on the sides of it. I also have a metallic numb feeling\taste. I know it sounds weird but its the best description I can give. It is starting to hurt at times when I am eating.
Avatar n tn In regards to the flat spots on your tongue and the red burning sensation you've had on it as well, you might look into the possibilty of that being glossitis. I myself have a form of glossitis called 'geographic tongue' which is where red flat patches appear on the tongue then go away. It's caused by stress and is a harmless condition. Sometimes certain foods can trigger it as well.

Avatar m tn It seems to be healing up but noticed a vein appearing on the sides near the location near the sore. Are these two related and is it normal to get flesh colored veins on the sides of tongue? Is this something I should be worried about? Thank you.

Avatar m tn Hey, 3 weeks ago I gave and received oral sex with someone and about 2 days after I came down with a cold and noticed a light yellow-grey coating on my tongue. About a week and a half ago the cold had completely gone away but the coating on my tongue has stayed. And now, I've just noticed that there are bumps near the back of my tongue (and seemingly moving up towards the front) that look like they might be sores.
Avatar n tn A friend of mine has pink sores at the back of her tongue just on the sides at the back they are small in size and pink in color, they are not painful. In the morning she sometimes has a sore throat. What could it be? Very worried for her.

Avatar n tn I will wake up feel nothing and by noon I begin to feel the sensation that something is in the back of my mouth and by night the left side of my throat is sore almost like a burning feeling and the back left side of my tongue feels as though I have biten it. The sensation of hair on my tongue is on both sides. I took a tongue depresser tonight and did not notice anything on my tongue but I did notice a cluster of red/light almost blister like bumps on the back of my throat.
Avatar m tn 3 days after the intercourse i started to feel itch and some kind of burning sensation on the top of my upper lip, and pain on both sides of my tongue. The pain on my tongue has gone, but until now, i still feel these burns and itches on top of my upper lip, but oddly no sores at all. Only itches and burnings, but its not always there, it comes and goes. It does look a bit swollen though, im not sure if its red, because it's kinda hard bcs i'm dark skinned.
Avatar f tn I don't know if this will help but I had a sore on my tongue which wouldn't go away. Finally, I took some liquid acidopholus and it vanished. I always take it after I use antibiotics to reintroduce the flora which antibiotics wipe out. Now, I take it a couple times a week and haven't had any more sores. Oh, and make sure you're drinking lots of water.
Avatar f tn I also have some on the back sides of my tongue, one cluster on each side, right where the tongue meets the back molars. There's a large patch on the back of my tongue, and I can feel a patch in my throat when I cough. Four days ago, I visited the doctor about my still-sore throat. He said I had herpangina, a non-STD virus. However, everything I've read about herpangina says that it clears up within a week max.
Avatar m tn Inflamed papillae can sometimes cause small, painful bumps on the top surface or upper sides of your tongue. Tongue sores are usually caused by trauma, physical injury, bacterial or viral infections, vitamin deficiencies and tonsillitis. If sores are large, painful, or persistent, it is best to consult a doctor. It is best to avoid citrus fruits and acidic vegetables and spicy foods till it is cured.
Avatar n tn I too discovered a sore on the side of my tongue on Monday. ( today is Wednesday ) it is large and really red irritated and it looks black and blue around the edge. There is also one spot that is black and blue on the end of my tongue. I do have a bad tooth or so on that side that need attention and I had the flu over the past weekend and was vomiting quite forcefully. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I am really scared right now.
Avatar m tn I had protected vaginal sex a month ago and recently have had two tiny tongue papules on different sides on the front of my tongue inflamed. They are going down within a few days but I began to develop somewhat swollen lymph nodes in my neck to accompany my tongue issue. Then I went hot tubbing a night ago and two less than a tac head big, shiny red dots appear on my shaft. One is more red than the other and kind of hurts to touch. Not hard to the touch though.
Avatar n tn I have had 2 bumps each on both sides of my tongue, close to the tip for about a week now. They don't hurt but I recently noticed them when looking at a canker sore I had about 2 weeks ago. I don't know if maybe my tongue is irritated from the orajel I used to numb the canker sore, or if the toothpaste i'm currently using is too harsh, they are the only things I can think of.

Avatar m tn Sometimes I can feel it and sometimes not. After I eat my tongue is sore and the tip will twitch on both sides. GP says last week that my tongue is healthy and if I had ALS the 5Th nerve would not have regenerated itself. Is that true? He says that after 28 months I would have a lot more signs. I can feel it twitching now and I am at my wits end. Any ideas on what I can do to stop this twitching.
