Canker Sores and Feeling sick?
Dev05 posted:
A couple days ago i noticed i had a small canker sore on the lining on my gums. yea it hurt a lil but though nothing of it. then yesterday i noticed my mouth was sore just under my lower central incisors i looked in the mirror and i had another one. I also started feeling ill.. Just really tired and sluggish a lil sore throat chills but no fever. i have another one that just devolped on my inner cheek. Can the Canker sores be caused by a virus? or is it just a quirk that i caught a cold and canker sores at the same time?
