Why is my tongue sore and cracked

Common Questions and Answers about Why is my tongue sore and cracked


Avatar n tn I had something diagnosed 9 years ago. It is called oral lichen planus. There is a white film which is on my tongue, gums and cheeks. My tongue will get swollen, painful and cracks in it at times. For years we thought it was thrush because I was treated with prednisone. Saw many doctors and then finally one ENT diagnosed and had a biopsy to confirm.

Avatar n tn I've had an orange tongue and sore throat for a couple weeks and I thought I was the only one going through this. It is very embarassing and my kids kept asking me why my tongue was orange. I am so glad I found this site because a couple of people on this site have mentioned they had switched from Listerine mouth wash to Crest Pro-Health mouth wash, well so did I, and that is when the orange tongue and sore throat began. That seems to be at least one common thread people have.
657020 tn?1238041118 When I finally changed doctors is when my hands hurt me so bad and there was no resolution. My tongue hurt me, was cracked, and raw. My doctor said allergies but dismissed it as nothing. My fingernails also have no moons and where the moons are supposed to be, they were blue. My doctor immediately said 'Reynauds phenomenon". Again, dismissed. My chiropractor is the one who thought it was related to B12. He even mentioned this to my doctor but it was dismissed.
Avatar n tn The best toothpaste for a sensitive mouth and tongue is "Tom's of Maine - Fennel." No matter how sore my mouth is, I can use it with no problems. There are a few other natural ones in cherry flavour etc that work well. But the pepermint and wintergreen ones are terrible! Even Sensodyne burns like Heiil!
Avatar n tn From a quick check online a yellow tongue is a common symptoms of HIV and drug users. It can also be caused by Jaundince. You should see an ENT about this or go to your regular doctor for a referal.
Avatar n tn Benedryl doesn't touch it, Allegra slows it down and Zyrtec had been preventing it until I came down with the flu last week and my resistance to such things was lowered. My upper lip is swollen today; I've taken a megadose of Allegra (360 mg) which may have slowed down the swelling (hard to know for sure). I'm weighing whether or not to go the epipen route and will decide later today depending on how much worse it gets.
Avatar n tn I've been doing the hot compresses on my eyes and using Cetaphil lotion on my dry patch and eyelids. The dry patch is gone now, but the sore eyelids remain. Did you ever get a diagnosis from a doctor??
Avatar m tn I personally think it's a neurological problem and not the eyes. My daughter has great eyesight is slim and very fit (she's an orange belt in karate) Night time is definitley worse and first thing in the morning. I will keep my updates going in this forum, hopefully we all can get some answers.
Avatar n tn Approx 2 years ago the front and right side of my tongue cracked. It isn't sore although I feel that my taste buds at the front of my tongue have been effected and at times the front of my tongue can feel quite fury. The only feel research and information I have found about these symptoms are difficult to understand as they are based around Chinses medicine. I would like to know why my tongue cracked 2 years ago and if there is anything I can do to get it back to normal?
1336491 tn?1340623141 It is like my bite has a mind of its own. It is always my left side which is my bad side from the MS. I told my Doctor and they did an eeg last year which found no seizure disorder my copay was $700. A few months ago I cracked a tooth from biting which cost $1500 dollars to fix, my in insurance would not pay for it. My dentist made me a bite guard my insurance won't pay for but it is worth it. At first I gagged and though I would never get used to it now I use it all the time.
146021 tn?1237208487 The itching was getting worse in spite of the three different meds I was prescribed, my tongue was sore and bleeding and I was not getting any sleep. Yes, many have been thru much worse, but if I don't succeed, my liver is in good shape for a while. BTW, still itching, have cat-scratches all up and down my arms from scratching myself, tongue has blisters and little river-looking things hair still faliing out in handfuls. So I guess it takes awhile to get the meds out.
Avatar f tn I go to Endo on monday so I want to be intelligent about this...thanks Lisa PS got my stiches out today and my scar line is absolutely flawless... it will heal up great inspite of blowing the first stich set. Doc says my site looks good inspite of added trauma...
Avatar m tn Well that’s pretty much impossible because I blow my nose and it comes out (if I keep it lubricated). Also, the scab covers my airway and is unbearable. 2nd doc cauterized my nose to “shock it” and stimulate cell growth. It didn’t work. Was painful as heck and then I found out I was allergic to basitracin. I then had Nose surgery for a biopsy, and it came back negative, so no cancer (yay!). He said that is seems like the cells aren’t normal in my nose so it isn’t healing right.
284078 tn?1282620298 So, if you are taking Topamax or getting ready to increase you dose or considering starting it - please, please take my advice and remember that it can cause sudden worsening of your vision, and if an attack of narrow angle glaucoma starts, you can develop severe eye pain, extreme headache, nausea, vomiting and nearly complete loss of vision.
Avatar m tn Whats alarming is that only my lymphocytes changed and dropped by 35% which is 21% of total WCC, this is compared to 3 month ago. My symptoms got better for two week, but then at three weeks after exposure i was getting the same symptoms along with a skin rash. The rash is small red dots, some are raised and some are inside the skin. The rash itches when touched. I got a swollen lymph gland on right side of neck.
429155 tn?1205676864 Throughout the day I had a few low periods and do not yet feel the drug is out of my system, and I am yearning to be my old self. Through some research I have learned that using sleeping pills is not the answer and have decided to stop using them. It takes time for the brains receptors to begin making it's own chemicals again natuarally and the taking of any kind of drug ( not natural ones ) can upset this process.
Avatar m tn back pain------------------------Started 3 weeks after exposure and still mild back pain (3 months) 5. white tongue (slightly at back of tongue) and scalloped edge tongue ------observed 1 month after exposure still same 6. 3 days experienced dry mouth at Night 7. high fatigue -------started along with fever and disappeared after 75 days for exposure (come and go) 8. no skin rush 9. No diarrhea 10. loss of appetite -------still continue 11. No enlarged lump nodes 12.
Avatar m tn Hijacked?This is my thread! Anyway,why is there no danger if i may ask?U read so much on the other sites how having a cold sore increases the changes so what if u both have one? Really no change?
Avatar f tn About 8 days after a low risk incident I developed ARS symptoms=loose stools for 2 days, Night sweats for about 2 weeks, Thrush (confirmed) on my tongue, burning throat and (I think) hairy leukoplakia on the tip of my tongue ( my tongue is thick and cracked and sore), And still 5 months later my symptoms persist and more have come about such as numbness in my thighs, sores on my body that are healing slowly, shortness of breath, heart palpatations and insomnia and all I can think about is that
Avatar f tn not very often, but I have noticed a few little flutters here and there, and also having a strange feeling in my left eye (like it is swollen and something is in it) and find that my vision is a little blurry after reading a lot or doing a lot on the computer. Pulse and BP are OK (so far--checking at home.) Sorry post was so long...new at this and have lots of questions, but feel so much better knowing that other people are experiencing the same things. It's scary.
Avatar n tn Now that I am 22 the pain has been getting progressively worse and has moved to every part of my body. My neck is always in pain, my back is always stiff and in knots, I cannot run anymore (at least not w/o feeling immense pain), walking up stairs is a constant chore, my night vision is diminished considerably, and my breathing is as if I am horribly out of shape, when in fact I am not. I constantly feel weak and lightheaded.
Avatar f tn It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again. I just need to know if Anxiety can cause all of these symptoms, and constantly, 24/7 I have these symptoms.THIS IS TAKING OVER MY LIFE! PLEASE HELP ME!!!
Avatar f tn That my hair loss, tinging hands, tongue, and all of my other problems had to do with one problem. My tongue is really, really cracked. When I asked my doctor about it, he said that that wasn't the usual cracking he's seen, associated with thyroid problems. There are deep cracks in it....and, depending on the day, I have white weird looking lines through it....kind of looking like the pictures I've seen of geographic tongue online.
Avatar m tn My salivary glands are not working properly and this is what explain why my tongue is always dry or with thick/sticky saliva (xerostomia). Now this Friday I am having a lip biopsy to rule out Sjogren Syndrome (SS). From what I have found, it seems I was infected with a virus (probably retrovirus) through oral sex (the cervical swollen lymph node about 10 days to 2 weeks after exposure is clearly indication of that).
Avatar n tn But after the things in my life calmed down i noticed the depression and moodiness were still there and getting worse and worse. I talked to my doctor and she is taking me off the pill - i have been a pill continuous for ten years so she feels my body needs a break. She did tell me that she has had other patients who have experienced extreme depression on Yaz. I am really nervous about going off the pill since i have been on it so long but i am willing to try anything at this point.
Avatar n tn I have had neuropathies going on in both hands and both feet for years. My tongue has been beef red and burning on and off for years. My memory has been getting worse. I've been getting clumsy. I've had sores (not coldsores) that come and go at the corners of my mouth since I was a kid. All sorts of parathesias in legs and arms, hands and feet. My elbows and arm muscles have been so sore for at least 7 or 8 years that they are hardly usable.
Avatar n tn My chest has been sore for 3 days since. My husband was with me and didn't know whether to hit my back, call 911 or what. I don't know wha to do when it happens cause I immediately panic and I have asthma and it starts my asthma. I am petrified of having any tests or surgeries because I'm afraid I will have one of these spasms and die trying to get my breath. There has got to be something they can do for this.
Avatar f tn I've heard too many stories about healthy or good people getting sick and dying. I'm 45, but my kids are only 6 and 8 and my biggest fear in life is that I won't see them grow up. My wife is getting tired of me fearing for my life. She used to call me the rock in our family, and now I'm afraid she doesn't feel that way anymore. I just feel that I haven't been a good enough person in this life to be spared from some aweful disease. I'm sorry to go on like this.
Avatar m tn These past few weeks i have also had this weird sensation in my legs which is hard to explain. It is in the calf muscles. Stabbing sensations, pain, tingling, and sometimes it even feels like my legs are heavy and shaky to walk on. I saw my Dr who told me: ANA and RA tests were negative, my cd57 (measuring immune health was 64), she said this is pretty low seems most healthy immune systems are 180+, and my ATP(energy to cells was 19).
