Hi everyone,

Strange question but I need some advice. For the last couple of years I have had some issues with my tongue, at times it feels enlarged, at times I am unsure how to hold it in my mouth as a result. One thing that seems to correlate with the feeling is an increased amount of white on my tongue.

When my tongue is white it feels scratchy and enlarged. It seems to worsen if I do exercise, causing the amount of white to increase. I sometimes suffer from a little stomach pain on the left side of my tummy but it is not severe and not regular enough to concern me. I just wonder if there might be a correlation...

I have also had a problem with grinding my teeth recently and wear a mouth guard but the conditions mentioned above began happening long before that. I thought the pain initially was my impacted wisdom teeth and that this might be having an adverse effect on my oral health but dentist’s say that’s not the case.

The only other reason I can think is some sort of reflux from my stomach but I am not sure...

It is really impacting my quality of life as it causes me some anxiety because it’s such a nagging feeling in my mouth. It also stops me from being able to eat and drink freely without their being an impact on my tongue.


Does anyone have any suggestions or help?

I have tried:

Cutting out carbs and dairy
Drinking green tea
Tongue scrapers and improving dental hygiene

Have you tried actually seeing a doctor about your tongue? A swollen itchy tongue and mouth can be symptoms of an allergic reaction.
