|I see people posting questions about sores or lesions on their tongue. I do not have sores. However, the vertical lines in my tongue are wider than normal and my tongue is sore. There's no discolor, just soreness when I eat. Is this lupus related?|

|Welcome to our forum Dsilva. There is a type of thrush that causes vertical lines, redness, and some pain. I get it often, but I am usually able to ignore it. Sometimes docs will prescribe an oral suspension that contains a numbing agent if it gets too bad. Docs are more concerned if you get a white coat on your tongue which is the typical thrush caused by yeast and is very painful. |
How long have you had Lupus? I hope that you are feeling well. Feel free to post anytime. Love, Butterflake

|I've personally never had that. I get the textbook painless ulcers. But with Lupus I'm learning anything can happen! Haha |
I hope you find answers!

|Lots of oral problems with lupus for some patients. Thrush is common with lupus as well as other AI diseases particularly if on any dose of prednisone. I had it for years but avoided the other oral problems somehow.|
