sore tongue....

well- for the past few days, I've had a sore spot on my tongue, near the tip- it looks like a taste bud is swollen???? Nothing really obvious except when taking a really close look.

Anyone ever have something similar? This is REALLY ANNOYING!!!!!

on remicade since 11/05

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.

Hey L, EJ used to get them often until he started taking extra B-vitamins. Now they are very rare for him.

yes, I know the feeling. I made sure I didnt have anything acidic...no juice or tomatoes .. which I am sure your tongue would have let you know. I was told to gargle with salt water.. I did but it still took awhile. Dex probably has the right answer....

I have had them occasionally in the past. If they got really irritating, I would put Orajel on them. I found they only lasted for a couple of days and then it went away.

I have issues with my tongue. I don't get sores, however, it feels swollen and tight. It was quite bad when I was first diagnosed that it was almost difficult to speak. My GI nor an ENT doctor could explain it. Very odd...

Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease - July 2010
Diagnosis of Crohn's Disease Retracted - October 2011

I am still sick and so confused...
