Common Questions and Answers about Tongue ulcers vitamin deficiency

tongue

Avatar n tn Sounds like you are very acidic. I get the cold sores, cracks in sides of mouth, and tongue ulcers as well. As SOON AS I FEEL THEM COMING ON, I immediately take 1,000 mg of Lysine (500mg in the morning, 500mg at night). I starts to thwart them off by the next day. It is truly amazing. (Get the GOOD kind at a place like the Vitamin store or a reputable health food store - - - make sure it has NO yeast in it!) There seem to be certain foods / chemicals in the food that instigate mine.
Avatar n tn My understanding is that B12 def can cause lesions, particularly on the spinal cord but eventually on the brain as well if untreated too long. Perhaps your lesions came from the vitamin deficiency. Also speaking from my research, I would URGE you not to settle for levels in the 200s. With symptoms like yours, why settle for a cure with a 10% chance of failing? I wish you the best of luck.
Avatar n tn A doctor I went to also said she thought it was aphthous ulcers but didn't act like it was a big deal and didn't tell me anything to do about it. Please let me know what you all hear about it as it seems like it is impossible to find information about it!
Avatar m tn My problem starts from 6 months before, i have sore tongue and have ulcers in my mouth then i went to dr he told me for the blood test,after my blood test reports says i have vitamin B12 deficiency my leel was 81.
Avatar n tn why is my tongue sore, numb and tingling and ulcers on my mouth all of a sudden
Avatar f tn nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid or iron deficiency; and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Crohns disease and Celiac disease. Recurring blisters in mouth can be due to any of the causes mentioned above. Ulcers caused by mouth cancer usually appear on or under the tongue but can be seen anywhere in the mouth. A person is more at risk of developing mouth cancer if he/she smokes is a heavy alcohol drinker and is over 45 years of age. Consult an ENT specialist.
Avatar n tn It could be due to iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia and other B-vitamin deficiencies, aphthous ulcers, oral lichen planus, erythema multiform, pemphigus vulgaris, syphilis, yeast infection; exposure to irritants such as hot foods, or spices, tobacco, alcohol; allergy to toothpaste, mouthwash, breath fresheners, dyes in candy, dentures, food items, coloring agents, or blood pressure medications like ACE inhibitors.
Avatar f tn I had the gastric bypass surgery and then 8 months ago I broke out in canker sores in my mouth on my tongue, under my tongue, on my gums, and on my soft pallet of the roof of my mouth and back of my throat. The pain was so bad I coudn't move my tongue to speak, eat, or drink for a couple days, they lasted six weeks. Then as I was starting to get my life back I had another breakout, same intensity as the first but it didn't last quite as long.
Avatar n tn Hi Rsoemary, there may be many causes for soreness on the mouth. this may be due to the medication, vitamin deficiency, stress, ulcers and many other reasons. Perhaps you should start taking some multivitamins and ensure that you take all nutrients in your diet. You may want to consult your doctor and get this sorted out completely.
Avatar f tn I'm pretty sure I was tested for that, but I will have them check my Vit. B12 again!! Thanks! Julie - will let you know what they say for treatment/what is causing it.... do you have MS and did the docs think this burning tongue sensation was from MS?
Avatar f tn If it's a vitamin B deficiency, a high potency B complex vitamin will work, but it will take 1-2 weeks... Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn A burning tongue can be a sign of B12 deficiency. To rule it out/in, you will need a serum b12 level as well as MMA and nutritional homocysteine levels. The last 2 are metabolites of B12 that are more accurate than serum B12 alone.

Avatar m tn As well as Thrush caused by the fungus Candida Albicans, other causes included pernicious anaemia (an inability of the stomach to absorb vitamin B12 from food), iron and folic acid deficiency and very rarely cancer of the tongue. A white tongue can also be caused by inflammation after a tongue injury, lichen planus (white patches) and scrs on the gongue after a serious burn which may remain white for some weeks or months.
Avatar n tn It is an awful thing to 'have to put up with' I also have ulcers on the back of my tongue and roof of my mouth, this cannot be normal.
Avatar f tn I'd take high potency multi-Vit B with breakfast and lunch, plus, perhaps for a month or two, a bit extra of the separate B vitamins whose deficiency symptoms you have, plus a good multi-vitamin-multi mineral combination. When you see and feel improvement you can drop the additional separate B's, but continue with the rest of them. B vits tend to rev most people up with more energy, so I don't take them after 1 or 2 PM. Make a list of your symptoms: appearance, feel, taste.
Avatar n tn Other possibilities are iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia and other B-vitamin deficiencies, aphthous ulcers, oral lichen planus, and fungal infection. Please take her to he pediatrician and get this examined. She may need multivitamins and something to soothe the bumps if they make it difficult for her to eat. Take care!
Avatar f tn 676, 1997 Co factors for vitamin D absorption are magnesium (most important), vitamin K, vitamin A, zinc, boron. Severe magnesium deficiency is a noted cause of vitamin D resistance. The body uses magnesium in particular to convert vitamin D to active vitamin D which is why magnesium deficiency is a possible side effect of vitamin D supplementation.
Avatar f tn Generally, tongue pain may occur in diabetic neuropathy, mouth ulcers, iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia, B-vitamin deficiencies (glossitis), leukoplakia (or oral cancer) and exposure to irritants such as tobacco/alcohol/hot foods/spices. Usual symptoms could be pain, swelling, and change in appearance of the tongue. Sometimes tongue movement problems also can cause pain and most often caused by nerve damage.
314892 tn?1264627503 I have heard something about having a scalloped tongue...I'm sure it was a mineral deficiency of some sort. I wish I could remember what it was I read. I've give my non functioning brain a shake and will write again if I remember. Try googling it with deficiency to see what comes back. Sorry you arent feeling that great. Hopefully you'll feel better soon!
Avatar m tn nutritional problems, such as vitamin B-12, zinc, folic acid, or iron deficiency; and gastrointestinal tract disease, such as Celiac disease and Crohn's disease. Pain from a canker sore generally lessens in a few days and the sores usually heal without treatment in about a week or two. Avoid spicy or acidic foods during this time.
Avatar m tn Hi, It is true that vitamin B1 deficiency may cause neuropathy. All other causes have been ruled out. But I would suggest you to go for an MRI of the spine and rule out nerve compression as a cause of neck stiffness and numbness in the legs. Vitamin B1 deficiency may result from malabsorption so taking shots would be better. Localised abdominal pain may not result from neuropathy. Please go for an endoscopy to find out if there is recurrence of the ulcer. Lisinopril also causes abdominal pain.
Avatar n tn I'm hoping that this burning is just from a vitamin deficiency, I'm going to try taking Vitamin B supplements and some other supplements see if that helps.
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Vitamin deficiency can cause symptoms of glossitis, tongue inflammation and stomatitis. The other causes could be due to fungal infection or rash. It could also be canker sores. You will need to consult your dentist who will examine you and determine the cause so that appropriate therapy can be initiated. In the meantime, take OTC multivitamins rich in riboflavin to counter the mouth ulcers. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn i use peroxide to brush my teeth because i have sores that come and go on the right side of my mouth to the gums and underneath and along side my tongue on the right side. i had a dentist tell me this was more than likely a vitamin deficiency of some sort but after all this time i tend to think it is possibly an acid surplus. i have been on celebrex for joint pain, effexor for a spastic colon, and the only timing i can relate all of this to is the death of my mother at Christmas 2008.

Avatar m tn Later, there were sores in my mouth- from inner side of cheeks to tongue. My doctor said that it can be because of Vitamin deficiency. I am taking vitamin tables. But, I have red & white spots on back way of tongue, there is also some whitish layer on my inner side of cheeks, there are sores on tonsils & inner side of cheeks too but they are not painful. Today morning, I brush my tongue as usual but I saw small blood in spat. I am scared now. What can be reason.
Avatar f tn just started two days ago with pain in left side of my throat started out like I swallowed a razor blade and progressed to left side of back of tongue and left ear ... last time I had a pain like this I had ulcers down my throat because of mono...
Avatar m tn It is difficult to comment without examining. The tongue could be cracked due to various reasons.
