Tongue Problems
4 Replies
farmgirl - June 29

I haven't been formally diagnosed with fibro but it's been suggested to me as I seem to show many of the symptoms such as muscle twitching and weakness. The problem I have been the most frustrated with and have hit a wall with doctors is with my tongue. Sometimes it gets hugely swollen (so much so that I actually have grooves in the side of it where it presses against my teeth). It becomes difficult to manipulate it to make sure I am speaking clearly. It will feel tired too sometimes after I eat or have a long conversation. Has anyone ever had these problems? I'm in a state of panic because these are also symptoms of another disease that I don't even want to think about.

I'm afraid I've never heard of a tounge swelling as a FM symptom. Do you have any pain in your joints? Have you been tested to MS? They're very similar. But there's no pain with MS, just fatigue and weakness. Hope this helps.

my father has MS and is in constant pain. i have had it where my tongue would have the grooves from my teeth on them i didnt think about it being swollen but i guess it is. I recently talked about the problem I have with feeling tired after eating. i have to let me dr know about that. I hope you find out soon what is ailing you. take care

The grooves in my tongue are normal for me and is like that all the time(no swelling here). I also have problems with slurred speech if I get tired or I'm having a bad flare, I have to really think about it so I speak clearly. I have TMJ issues so if I have something in my mouth and try to talk or laugh my jaw and sometimes under my toungue will hurt badly.

I am not sure what would cause the tongue swelling though.
Good luck

I am always biting my tongue. I grind my teeth at night and end up bleeding or having sores on my tongue. It feels swollen at times as well. I also get burning tongue syndrome. Sometimes any liquid will make my tongue burn bad.

So, I understand and sympothize. Huggles
