Salivary stone under tongue

Edited , 2 users are following.

I have a blocked salivary stone under my tongue for the last 10 days have some to my gp who has refused to treat with antibiotics as they say they are not licensed to do so but they gave them to me a few months prior! Can anyone shed any light on the symptoms I will get I can see the stone under my tongue the pain comes and go but it affects the whole of my mouth I take 2 paracetamol and the pain goes away anyone else had the same thing?

    Yes I had a salivary gland stone you should try sucking sherbet lemons to increase the saliva and it might come out.It usually gets painful if the saliva gets blocked by the stone and you may get swelling and pus due to infection coming into your mouth.I used to get strong antibiotics from the doctor but the infection and pain got so bad I got my salivary gland removed.Ask for a referral to ENT .I know its a bad time to get an appt but if its causing you a lot of discomfort you need to get seen.Sometime s the stone just pops out the duct but if you have one you may have others .Also a good mouth wash and dental care.Hope this helpstake care.

      I have tried a sherbet lemon doesnt seem to do much I did have an ENT app but obviously it's been cancelled due to this virus going around can I ask did yours cause you pain in your teeth?

    Yes I did get toothache type pain. If it does not move it will eventually get infected so they will give you antibiotics I used to get co-amoxyclav it settled it down used to get swelling around my neck area I did have it on and off for a couple of years but due to infection I got my submandibular gland removed as I had a large stone in it.Hopefully yours will resolve by itself.take care.
