Avatar f tn ve been having similar issues. Sore throat at base of tongue (almost feels like an ulcer on the tongue), scalloped tongue, mild ear pain/itchiness--all this on the left--some hoarseness and coughing. ENT said he saw absolutely nothing upon scoping the throat. No blood work was done. Have a followup in 3 weeks. This is just exhausting to me. I mentioned thyroid at the ENT, nurse said that swelling/symptoms are usually lower, under Adam's apple.
Avatar n tn I have developed this 1mm needle-like sore pin on the tip of my tongue since July. It gets a little painful sometimes.
1303942 tn?1273060781 on sunday morning i woke up to a sore throat and swollen gums around the front of my bottom teeth, my tounge is also sore and its sore underneath my tongue, i had a look this morning in the mirror and i noticed tiny white spots on the tip of my tongue, but my tongue just feels weird, i cant really describe it, but it hurts, i have been to the doctors but he didn't seem to know what it was so he prescribed me antibiotics, vk penacillian.
501096 tn?1320874932 This morning I awoke when a sore and swollen tongue. It looked a little whitish, but not like thrush. The edges of my tongue felt bumpy (not tiny little spots, just an irregular surface). I had a difficult time eating breakfast due to the soreness. I took an antihistamine, but I don't know if it helped or not. I also have some mild tenderness & swelling just under the left side of my chin; however, it is more noticeable to the touch rather than by observation.
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 m tn In any case I had a lot of pain in that area, but also there was swelling under the right side of my tongue, which was also painful. I told my uncle (who is a physician) and he told me to use Listerine when I brush my teeth, that it works as an antibiotic and the gland would go down and the pain would go away. I decided to take him up on his advice.
Avatar f tn On Wednesday I noticed a small white dot on my tongue sore to touch, very sensitive. And at Wednesday night I had come down with a fever that lasted till Friday morning but on Friday morning I realised I had more of these spots on my tongue (3) and on my lip. Upon further inspection I noticed a swelling or lump type thing growing just before my tonsils making it hard for me to swallow. It seemed to have gone down abit but should I seek help from My doctor?
Avatar m tn I am a long-term, light smoker who recently quit. Yesterday I noticed a very small white spot on the side of my tongue. It looks like pappilae that are somewhat raise from the surface of the tongue. I don't have any swelling of the tongue but it the spot dose occasionally interfere with speech as the area is sensitive to touch and hurts when making contact with my teeth. I applied pressure to the area using my thumb and forefinger and detected no noticeable mass.
Avatar f tn t really hurt though I can still walk normally and pee without pain but if I touch it its sore. I put some ice on it and sat in a cold bath to see if that would help and i think it did a little. I don't think it is a huge concern but I am kind of worried. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn And there is a white patch (some swelling) around the part of your tongue that attaches to the bottom of your mouth. I have looked up salivary gland stones and do not think it's that because the white patch is flat. But I cannot find anything other than oral cancer as the cause.
Avatar n tn I have a reallypainful sore on the back side of mt tongue and for some reason my tongue looks different around it;s edges.What is it?
Avatar n tn the area of my tongue that i was trying to describe is the lingual tonsil area. both sides of my tongue appear to be affected.
Avatar f tn I would wake up several times during the night gagging on the taste and smell of strong plastic and my tongue burned where it touched the palate. My throat was sore and my sinuses around my eye sockets were so painful that it hurt to wash my face. There was constant nausea and malaise. I felt as if I was coming down with the flu. The dentist removed the lining material about 3:00 PM and within a few hours the symptoms began to reside.
Avatar n tn I have very chapped lips with raised portions in corners of lips that are discolored and now the tip of tongue is getting sore and minor swelling of inside of lips
Avatar f tn My sister went through a period of time when her tongue kept swelling and she thought it was b/c of an allergic reaction to something in her diet, which ended up not being the case. It remains a mystery why this happened. She does have hypothyroid and I am wondering if lip and/or tongue swelling can be a symptom of thyroid issues.
Avatar f tn Hello, I went to an ENT a few weeks ago and the strange areas on my tongue were geographic tongue. But my tongue is constantly white no matter how much I brush it and I have been having a sore throat as well. I am not sure why I am so worried. I brought the white tongue to the attention of the MD, but he didn't think much of it. I think it is odd. If anyone else has had any similar experiences, I would love to hear about them. Thanks for your time!
Avatar m tn Had a 32 day HIV finger test today result negative. My exposure was unprotected oral (receiving). How reliable is that test after 32 days? I know no-one has ever been documented catching it from that but I am testing to 12 weeks whatever anyone says. Also can you catch Syphilis from kissing? I have a slight red spot on my tongue not a spot as in a swelling etc just a red bit on my tongue.
Avatar m tn I have hypothyroidism. I have recently had 2 episodes with alarming mouth & gum swelling, redness, some tongue swelling & sores. I figure out what these episodes happened and if they are related to my thyroid condition. I do not have any known allergies. I'm 48 yrs old. 3 Drs have said they have seen nothing like it. Histamine injections, antibiotics & in one case liquid steroids were used simultaneously and worked. Healing occurred within 1 and 3 days respectively.
Avatar n tn The blotchiness (slightly pink, not raised, no sores, etc) had returned, on my torso. My throat, tongue and eyes were normal. The swelling and rash has dissipated slowly throughout the day. I have not changed anything (soaps, shampoo, etc) nor have been exposed to anything abnormal (food or environmental). Any ideas on what this may be???
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with genital hsv1 in March. I never had any oral symptoms, but got my first oral outbreak in July. I got a swab test and the sore on my lip was indeed HSV1. At the same time I had severely swollen gums and ulcers on my tongue. Since then I've been having recurrent gum swelling and tongue ulcers twice a month. From what I've read, it is pretty unusual to have recurrent hsv on your tongue. Any advice or suggestions about what is going on, or why it is so bad?
Avatar f tn Since aug, on and off, my face , eyes,lips and above my mouth has been swelling up.

487969 tn?1249313291 I had a CT done 6/4 that showed shotty nodes, opacification (patchy) of the mastoid air cells, enlarged thyroid with right side predominance. Now I woke up with this swelling tongue. I does not seem as swollen now, but this a.m. you could see the teeth impressions on the sides. I have one spot on it that is kind of sore, like a taste bud irritation on the side. I take 25 mcg levothyroxine. My last blood level (TSH only b/c endo is a jerk) was 0.557.
