When you wake up to discover your tongue is pitch black...Holy Moly.  Don't Google...Black hairy tongue...Outer Mongolian Swamp fever and twenty diseases with fourteen vowels in them...Nope, not a fibro symptom.  OH, the humanity!  I about popped a vessel.
 
It's Pepto Bismol.  You have to read the label. 'may cause black tongue....'
 
The scariest thing is that the hubby told me this happened many years ago and I made him take me to the doctor who laughed his head off.  Scraped it off with a tongue depresser, says the hubby.  The mind...it's the second thing to go, or so I've been told.

Lol, Donna. You know, I've read about that side effect on the back of the bottle, but I've never actually known anyone who has had it. Makes me wonder about you............ turn devil

Hope your tongue is a nice healthy pink color soon. smilewinkgrin

Dang, that would be scary!!

What's the first thing to go? I thought it WAS the mind, but maybe I've just forgot the first.
