I got sick like a week ago and I have had this nasty taste in my mouth and my tongue has been feeling weird. I went to the doctor and he said I was sick and was going to give me a prescription for amoxicillin. Then he looked in my mouth again and asked if my tongue hurt and I said no. Now the next day I looked at my tongue and there are similar bumps they are part of my tongue, but they are sticking up and they feel funny and there are bigger bumps on the back of my tongue. They don't hurt, but are bigger and don't look like the other bumps.

I had a gum growth which was just removed and it healed cleanly. One week later I have noticed severe ridges on the upper part of my tongue.

I have had a swollen tongue for 3 yrs. My doctor changed blood pressure meds 7 times. I have had several different labs taken. Been to two allergists, not allergic to anything. I still have the swollen tongue. Dentist says no dental issues. The tongue is swollen all the time, sometimes the lips swell, sometimes burning and swelling is severe. Tip of tongue has white spot.

I have a big white patch under my tongue on the left side. It is painful and red around the edges. Not sure if it's thrush or something else. First time I have experienced this.
