 Went to my gp today since i have a couple of little pollips in my mouth and one is in a really awkward place and catches on my teeth,gets in the way of eating and has an ulcer on it now. Anyway he sent me off to my dentist who;s refered me to the local hospital for it to be removed! Anyone else had a similar problem? Just hope i dont grow anymore after they remove them!!!

Do you have a rheumy? There is a thing called Sjogren's Syndrome that affects our mucus membranes by making them very dry. It usually is first noticed in eyes, mouth, nose & ears. You might ask your Dr to test for it, as it is sometimes the cause of mouth issues like you are mentioning. Adding some prevention might keep you from getting more of these.

 Hi Lynwood,yes i was tested when first diagnosed with the dry eye test!!! I was ok however i do have a dry mouth an get ulcers in my nose and mouth and dryness where a girl should'nt be if you get me but i just deal with it! It's kind of the least of my problems i guessed! However these little lumps are visible and in the way although harmless i believe but my gp has refered me to my local hospital to have them removed.    I do have a lupus specialist in london and used to go every few months at first then 6 monthly and now i go just once a year for a complete check up and bloods and a long consultation where they take notes of any changes in symptoms,things are more under control thers days although we're just not well are we...i'm feeling rather depressed at the moment and desperate to get my weight down,moan,moan,moan!! I know there's people worse off than me but would'nt it be nice to wake up one morning feeling as well as i was 10yrs ago! Anyway thanks for your reply it just makes me feel i'm not alone x
