Hello does anyone ever have what feels like a painful swollen tongue and it also feels like it's harder to swallow? This seems to happen to me from time to time and when it does, my tongue feels sore and I don't even really want to talk. It feels most sore on the sides of my tongue towards the back. When it gets this way, I feel like I have to concentrate harder on speaking so I don't stumble over my words.
Before you ask, I have already been tested for everything under the sun.… read more
Just count on the potential of everything to possibably swell at some point. That way when it does you are not surprised.
Yes it happens to me and It could be for multiple reason 1) your tongue is swelling or may not be swelling but in turn causing you to bite your cheeks, gums and tongue at nights or during the day, It doesn't have to be a literal bite but having the soft tissue of a tongue press against hard coated teeth, its going to get injured and sore. Causes for this includes: teeth grinding, jaw misalignment, anxiety, bruxism etc. Should heel after 3 to 4 days. You may also experience pain in the jaw bones as well due to Fibro.
@A MyFibroTeam Member Well I am suppose to, I am grinding my teeth too much and I am losing teeth. ( Before my diagnoses- my Mom had bad teeth also)
@A MyFibroTeam Member really? My dentist is trying to get me to do a nightguard, i am not sure i could do it if it makes the mouth even more dry :/
