Hi Everyone, I am have the strangest thing, my tongue is so sore and covered in red dots/spots! It hurts so bad, it burns and stings constantly and of course worse if I try to eat or drink I have garged/swished with baking sode and warm water, but it has not helped at all. Has anyone experienced this? If so, what have you done to relieve the pain? I guess I will call one of my docs on Monday, but in the meantime, I seriously don't want to eat or drink anything because it hurts so bad. Any advice you have is appreciated! Hugs, Melissa
Hmmmm....interesting. I hadn't realized the MSG could impact the tongue - isn't MSG a kind of yeast? I try to avoid it when eating out or in processed food, but - you almost need to be a chemist because it has many aliases. My favorite dessert salad contains cherry jello, pineapple, apples, fresh cranberries, celery and walnuts - I still eat it once a year or so - and it never fails to produce pain afterward - somewhat lessened by the addition of real whipped cream
I think the mouth ulcers on the palate, inside the cheeks, gums, etc. are of a different sort - and may be more directly linked to lupus.
Thanks for the input Robert - and welcome!
