sore tongue

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone it's me again. Sorry I never seem to be off this forum asking questions. But your answers do help tremendously. My latest thing is a sore tongue. It's been drivivg me mad for a few days now. I keep sucking ice lollies or anything that cools it down and gives me a bit of relief for a wee while. Has anyone else had this or is this not connected to fibro. Any answer really appreciated.

    Hi I have a very sore tongue today, more of the tip than anything. I am going to the Dr's Thursday to have some tests for Magnesium and B12, going to ask for test for overgrowth of Bacteria and any more tests I can think of in the meantime,  My ibs is really playing me up today, I am going to look into some natural remedies.

    Hope your Tongue feels better soon

      Thanks Pat. I always feel better if I know someone else with fibro is experiencing some of the same symptoms. I was worried incase it was another problem on top of everything else. I have heard a lot lately about the lack of magnesium causing a lot of our symptoms so I am going to see my doctor about it too. Overgrowth of bacteria is something I have not heard of. Good luck with your doctot. I am lucky my IBS only acts up after certain foods so as long as I avoid them I don't get it very often.

      Take care

    Something you might try since it's on the tip of your tongue is Maleleuca oil. It's potent in taste, but it kills hundreds of thousands of pathogens. It's okay to use internally and externally. Find a pure essential oil. Have you used essential oils for other symptoms? They have helped me a lot.

    Hi, yes I have often felt stinging on my tongue and used to suffer a mouthfull of ulcers too, doc put me on calceous vit D and that has helped with the ulcers. It could be the fibro, seems a lot is related to it. I have been getting terrible headaches lately too and abdo pain, but that could be cos of all the pills I take. Wouldnt it be great to not have to take pills?! I have 2 calceous vit D, 2 co-codamol, 2 tramadol, 2 senna, 1 citalopram, 1 lansoprasole, 1 fenofibrate, 1 atorvastatin,  1 cetirizine hydrochloride each night plus pain relief and lansoprazole through the day and also morphine sulphate. I would love fo be able to stop the lot of them! Oh and other supplements, B6, hemp oil,  and caprylic acid. I would like to at least cut them down, but I cant see it any time soon, fibro seems to cause all sorts of symptoms and nobody seems to know enough about it. My occy health nurse seems to think I could easily go back to work with just a bit of CBT and the help of a fibro specialist and morphine patches. I humoured her and went to docs. He said there isnt a fibro expert, its rheumatology we go to, (I knew that) and morphine patches are not the answer as it stops working after a while (I knew that too) I have already had councelling it was absolute sh1t. Hate it when people think fibro is no big deal! Wish she could be in my  body just for one day and night and have trouble getting on the loo, in the bath, getting dressed, cleaning my teeth (I cant even squeeze the toothpaste some days) and of course, tossing and turning all night with pelvic pain. Maybe she would realise why I just want to take all my pills sometimes and be done with it. I just feel like I am waiting to die most days lately. It wasnt always as bad as this. I have managed for many years in my job etc, walking lots, having a social life, its just the last year things have gone so bad. Oh ok enough moaning! Lol lets put something funny on the tv x

      I have to mention that all these symptoms sound like possible celiac. If you have not been diagnosed, you might want to check it out while you are eating gluten. If not, try getting off gluten for a couple of weeks and see if your symptoms subside. So many autoimmune disorders are caused by celiac. And even if you get tested and are tested negative (as I have), I cannot touch the stuff because I have such bad symptoms. As far as I am concerned, I am celiac. My daughter was diagnosed a year ago as silent celiac when they did an endoscopy and saw the damage in her small intestine. She had no symptoms. And it's genetic. I have had symptoms for many years. It's not to be taken lightly.

      I have been convinced that mine is celiac too for a few years now. I have looked into it a lot and I have all the symptoms. I mentioned this to my gp but he said its not. I do agree that it would be a good idea to go gluten free for a while to see if there is a significant change and realky should try it. I have said lots of times that I will, but when I questioned gp again, he said it was a definite no! They dont always know though do they?! I once went and told my gp that I had to stop taking tramadol cos I was having night time convulsions and waking up biting into my tongue. He said very confidently tramadol does not cause convulsions. I advised him it was in the leaflet, so he got the book out, had a look and said "no its not a side effect, here have a look" and passed the book to me. I read it and then said to him "so where it says convulsions here......" He was a bit stunned and took the book back off me and said " oh its a good thing you looked. Stop taking it right away". I did for a few years but have started on it again now and as long as I dont take it too late I have been ok, but I dont sleep well anyway. I do dig my nails into my partners chest quite a lot while I am sleeping though! Lol and the other night apparently I brought my wrist down on the side of his face! I am surprised he stays in the bed with me! I have knocked glasses off my bedside cabinet lots too and kicked and scratched myself lots, I think this may be the tramadol too!

      Haha I think you need a new doctor!! Doctors don't know everything, tho they like to think they do. And nowadays there are so many gluten free options out there, so give it a whirl. If it is celiac, you will be doing your body a favor. And if Tramadol is causing such a problem, is there an alternative? I myself have been off gluten for many years, but it's a change. If you go to fast food and want a burger, ask for it on lettuce leaves. When I was in the UK recently, they thought I was crazy! LOL but I got it. And several restaurants had gluten free options. As you get better at it, you have to think about contamination like cooking French fries in fat that has had breaded items. And McD fries have gluten! Try it, you might just feel better :-)

    Hi sorelin - I have fibromyalgia and get this symptom also. Very annoying isn't it, especialy when a doctor tells you they've no idea why?  I get some relief when I remember to take B complex vitamins regularly. I think the key vitamin that helps reduce the sore tongue may be B12 but I'm not qualified on this subject. You can always investigate this avenue and give it a try once you're satisfied it might work for you.

    Hi. Yes I've had the sore tongue thing and it was down to a Folic acid deficiency. I've been on FOlic acid tablets for about three weeks and my tongue is much better :-)
