I woke up monday morning with swollen tongue and teeth marks on both sides. I went to the doctor and he said it was nothing to worry about and it should go away in a day or two. Todays wednesday and nothing's changed. I've googled but haven't... (more)
I have a recurring problem with my tongue that comes up every time I start to get a bit run down. The tip and front part feels over- sensitive, and hurts almost like I've burnt it on something hot, which I haven't. I can also get ulcers (canker... (more)
What you described - it happens to my tongue when I have food that contains too much MSG. Glugging water throughout the day usually solves the problem in one to two days.
The last week my tongue has felt enlarged and there are teeth marks on the side of it. It literally feels like it is too big for my mouth. What are the proper steps to diagnose and possibly reverse such symptoms? I follow a Perfect Health... (more)
Anyone here have any experience with Orofacial Myofunctional therapy and what did you think about it? Who did you see for it - someone local or over the internet? I'm considering seeing someone local (Carol Stoep) but am unsure if she's the... (more)
I am sure a lot of you have heard about the Buteyko breathing method. There is a proper way to rest your tongue and to swallow properly. Apparently children who grow up doing it the wrong way, develop narrow palates and eventually need... (more)
I used to have braces years back and a retainer. It was stage 1, and I was supposed to get more but didn't. I remember my dentist telling me I have an overbite because of the placement of my tongue. That's why I had a weird poky thing on the back... (more)
I seem to be developing a shrimp allergy :( I'm hopeful that this can be fixed as I LOVE what eating whole shrimp has done for my hair and nails - plus they are delicious little buggers. Could this slight swelling of my tongue within minutes of... (more)
Recently, I've woken up with a nasty white, coated tongue, the stuff on it, is the consistency of almost cream cheese. Scraping the stuff off with my teeth, I've also noticed a bit of gum bleeding. I'm normally VLC, with a little bit of carbs a... (more)
I've been to an ENT, 2 family doctors and a dentist. They said it's nothing much (although I did get prescribed nystatin - did nothing). But I'm not satisfied with having a yellow tongue!! Here's a picture: http://imgur.com/6v77c Has anyone... (more)
For the last two weeks,I have had stomach pains. After brushing my teeth I noticed that my tongue had cracks, which I never noticed before. Is there any correlation? Can I have a fungal infection?
I'm trying to reduce my exposure to chemicals and I've stopped using any kind of dental rinses. Have you read the ingredients listed on the bottle of any and all mouth washes? I can't even pronounce most of those ingredients. I recently bought... (more)
Ah stainless! I have always used plastic ones. Guess I should upgrade. I still use rinses but I think the tongue scraping is a very good thing. Disgusting but very good.
I purchased half a pastured pig this summer for an amazing price, and they threw in some offal as a bonus...I've never cooked pork offal and could use some tips from all you savvy seasoned pork offal eaters out there...I have a large liver, a... (more)
Umm... ok. Here you go! To me, pork offal isn't too far off from beef in flavour so you can definitely blend with beef products if you wanted. Liver! Grind up and add to meatballs or burgers. Fried with onions and bacon - for a milder flavour you... (more)
before paleo, i had a semi white/pasty tongue. i scrubbed, brushed, and scraped at it and it would always go back to the same wall paper paste color. up to this point, my diet was fairly healthy (imo), only water, minimal processed foods, no... (more)
Okay so I've noticed every time I eat meat, my tongue is a white-ish grey, no matter how many times I brush it, it stays like that for at least two days. In contrast, on days where I just eat vegetables, avocados, berries, and starchy veggies like... (more)
Does anyone know why this might be? The tip of my tongue is normal color but I just noticed today that I got a layer of yellow stuff at the back. Now that i've identified it I'm going to try to gurgle salt water 2-3x per day. Might try a... (more)
