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.

I have had a sore throat for about one and a half weeks. Now in the last three days my tongue has been a green color and is very sore. It's hard to eat or drink. My tongue has bumps and cracks in it.

My tongue is red and feels like it was burned. However, I haven't burned it and this has been going on for a couple months. It is hard for me to eat, as everything burns. I take a vitamin B-50 tablet daily and I get a vitamin B-12 shot once a month.

I usually get sudden and unbearable pain in my tongue. I consulted with many doctors but they couldn't find any reason.

My tongue feels sore and numb, and is white in color. This is just like what I experience with my fingers when they are cold.

I have soreness at the back of my tongue and at the base underneath. I can feel a small bump, and it has been itchy for about three days. It's most noticeable in the morning and lessens as the day goes on.
