Does anyone have mouth symptoms with anxiety?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Do any of you notice the tip of your tongue is more red and litte "lie bumps" show up. I'm freaking out cause now I think I have oral cancer. I have a small bump on mu tongue that doesnt hurt, but ivr also got a tasre bud that does hutt and is red. Can anxiety cause mouth issues? My anxiety is insanely horrible. I truly believe I'm a hypochondriac. Sometimes hate myself because of this. I'd do anything to make it go away.

    My tongue gets little bumps and stuff all the time, and my piercing in it gets infected a few times a year = )   Probably shouldn't be a smoker, but meh. 

    I don't think anxiety causes mouth issues, it's probably some food you ate, or maybe you bit it in your sleep. Tongues go through alot, they have to touch everything you eat! 

    Eat anything spicy lately?

    My gums got abit swollen and the side of my tongue got sore, but it seemed to have gotten better on its own. They say anxiety can do a lot of weird things to your body but I still find some of them hard to believe.

    I am a major hypochondriac and I always feel I'm gonna drop dead soon but I've been struggling with anxiety for 5months and I haven't collapsed yet.

    My arms hurt persistently, my toe and fingernails are very sensitive n tender, I get head rushes, itching and aches&pains all over randomly. I've given up on any of this going away, I will just live until I keel over I guess.

    One of the most common causes of red dots on tongue is a condition called strawberry tongue.  When you have it, your tongue will change from normal pink color to red with enlarged red taste buds dotting the surface.  Possible causes include a lack of vitamin B-12 and folic acid.

    I wouldn't worry though because when you go to the dentist, they always do a check for oral cancer.

    I haven't had anything spicy. I just noticed a couple of weeks ago that my tongue had the feeling like when you burn it. It's not aching or anything and it's just close to the tip, slightly raised. I dont feel any knots under the surface when I massage that part of my tongue. I also have, what I think, is an infected tasted bud. I'm just freaking out that it's oral cancer. Sigh. I'd do anything to not be this way.

      Possibly a mouth ulcer on your tongue?? I get them sometimes. Can be caused by stress.

      Usually they appear 1 at a time, like a small red bump about the size of one of your taste buds and they hurt when you apply pressure

    your tongue has sensory areas which are the bumps all over the surface.

    Well, I went to the dentist and he said irritation. He said cancer looks different, but I'm still scared. I hate illness anxiety.
