What an odd topic for CC, I know. Well, here's the deal. Today I was about to take a bath and I looked in the mirror and saw my tongue looked a little odd. I stuck it out further and I was shocked: there were little clearish/white bumps in the back, discoloration in a symmetric way (whitish and light colored tongue in front continued to a triangle shape in back, then on the sides it was a brighter redish color), and a 2 or 3 bigger whitish lump things in the far back on my tongue on each side. I have never had problems, and all of a sudden I see a freakish looking tongue. Yuk!
Anyway, I am trying to look stuff up on the internet of what it could be. I'm guessing it is some kind of fungal infection or viral, I don't know! I'm bad with science and medical stuff... That's why I posted this. If anyone has heard of something similar or knows anything on it let me know and give me any advice you have.
I thought it sounded a lot like thrush, but thrush is pretty rare in healthy adults. I consider myself healthy, though I have had some problems... I have been lacking energy for a long time. Finally I found out I was border-line anemic, so now after taking iron pills I don't need to take naps every day.
I know I'm rambling....Anyway, I don't know what is wrong with my tongue or what I should do. I suppose I need to go to the doctor, but I think I'll wait a week or so and see if it clears up. I hate going to the doctor. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the visit itself. I just hate how much it costs and often I don't find out much more than I already knew. Sigh. I just don't want to fork up money for nothing.
Also, my teeth have been kinda weird lately. Nothing serious really. It's just that sometimes it hurts to chew food back by my molars. I went to the dentist and had my teeth taken care of. Now three weeks later, however, I avoid chewing a lot of food in the back of my mouth on the right side. Ughh, all these pestering problems going on in my mouth!
