    Bit of a wierd random one:wacko:

    but my tongue is so sore! to look at it looks like i have been biting the sides of my tongue missing chunks.
    and it hurts loads to talk and eat.
    last night i woke and my tongue was so dry hurt it hurt so much i had to have a ice lolly and kept swigging milk to keep it moist.

    im a freak:blush:
    any ideas? do i need to see a dr or a dentist?
    im in work today and am only working offline as i really dont want to talk on the phone


    Kris is loving it though:hissy:

    Are you drinking enought Dionne?? (silly question,,,,,,,,,,I MEAN water etc!!!)

    The tongue can show lots of illnesses etc, certain colours and textures mean different things. Maybe worth looking it up??

    Have you got a tongue piercing?

    I was searching google and it said something about stress ulcers which sounded like you're describing a bit, best to see with your doctor though really.

    Hope you're feeling better now.

    It is most likely a form of anemia. You should have your OB run blood work.
