Bear with me on this bc I have no idea what's going on..
Back in Sept I was on antibiotics, about a week after my last dose I got a raging yeast infection which took 2 rounds of treatment to clear up, thanks AV! It took a while for my Estrace cream to start working again. About the same time I noticed some changes in taste and thick saliva (I know gross). I ignored it bc I had no other symptoms so just chalked it up to another silly symptom that would pass. Well it hasn't and it's gotten worse. I have a white coating on my tongue, not thick but noticeable, it burns and sometimes tingles and in the last couple days my tongue is getting fissures in it and the roof of my mouth is sore. I've been rinsing with warm salt water to no avail. I'm wondering if I have thrush from the antibiotics? Or some kind of mouth cancer, I know that's most likely my crazy meno brain talking but scares me none the less. Its driving me insane! I hate yogurt but bought some plain no sugar kind and coated my tongue with it, seems to burn more now. Anyone else have or had this problem? I have my well woman check and my regular physical next month so I was trying to hold out but I'm not sure I'm gonna make it. I may have to make a trip to Urgent Care. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
