    Tounge soreness
    eg0330 posted:
    Is anyone experiencing tounge soreness? If so, what are you doing or taking to ease the discomfort?
    nancyj95 responded:
    Hi! I have what is called "geographic tongue" which causes patches of the coating on the tongue to come off and cause soreness. I use a product called Glyoxide, which is available in most drugstores. You can use it either directly on the tongue or as a mouthwash. It definitely does help. Good luck!

    Hi there, I'm having the same problem. The roof of my mouth also feels swollen, it's very difficult to eat, so you don't eat much. You could try biotien, it's sold over the counter.

    I have also have been having problems with my throat, feels as if something is stuck there. Perhaps it's swollen, I have been developing pockets of plaque which makes me feel sick. Have you experienced that??

    I get sore tongue, sometimes a road map of lines that make it look split open, if I press down on tongue it is just sore, or sore to swish food around in mouth ,but no sores, I get the sores in my nose that come and go, and especially hurts or is tender along the nasal septum on both sides from the inside of my nose. Is this a Lupus symptom?
