I have had a problem with vaginal itching, hemorrhoids, and now suddenly I have hard blister-looking sores on the back of my tongue and the sores on my tongue have little to no pain.

My tongue problem is, it feels as if the veins underneath are pulled up, or there is a blockage somewhere. I can't eat or swallow.

My tongue is sore in the middle, like cuts in the middle of my tongue, though I have not cut it with food or anything else. Color is normal red. No other discolorations.

I have burning tongue for 44 years since the birth of my son. It started with dry mouth, full tongue in mouth. I have some saliva now but tongue is still full in mouth and burns. It"s like always being aware of my tongue.

I am trying to decide what type of dentist/doctor to see for a wound to the mouth. He had a hole in the roof of the mouth through to the sinus cavity, and the tongue has fused itself to the bottom of the mouth. He needs to have his tongue released from the bottom of his mouth and the hole closed, somehow. He has no teeth on the upper jaw and 3 teeth left on the bottom. His jaw is shattered, so nothing can be done with the bottom until surgery to fix the jaw, in about 2 months.

I have a case of sinusitis and I went to the doctor and was given antibiotic and something called a Z-Pak which tore up my stomach. Then I bought over the counter allergy pills. And then I was told to put Vicks VapoRub under my nose every night to try to open up the path to my forehead which causes the forehead to be blocked and causes you to not smell or taste right. I can smell but I can't taste a thing right, everything I eat tastes bitter, gum, meat, candy, ice. It tastes like I got fur on my tongue and I brush my tongue every day.
