For the past couple of days, I have repeatedly bit my tongue. It started with the sides, then just this afternoon, I bit the end while chewing gum. It's like my tongue is swollen or too slow to get out of the way of my teeth. I've now got sores all around the sides and end from biting it. I'm having to be careful because it really hurts.
I have had slurred speech for the past two months, and problems with my tongue and lips feeling thick and clumsy, but I'm not sure if that's related to this problem. I've also been having problems swallowing medications for the past couple of days. They keep getting hung in my throat so that I almost choke on them. (And these are the same pills that I have been taking for over a year now with no problems.)
Has anyone else had problems like this? Or am I just a masochist? And is there anything I can do to prevent further bites (other than muzzling myself!)
Thanks and hugs,
