White tongue

Does anyone else have a persistent white tongue coating? I've had this since my LPR/acid reflux symptoms began.

Re: White tongue

Look up "Vagal Neuropathy" and "Post Viral Vagal Neuropathy." Some folks have experienced major changes focusing on as a neurological thing, using meds like Neurontin and Lyrica. There's another theory that says mild reflux washing up into the LES area and not usually farther, can trigger nerves bundled around the gullet and influence spasming farther up. So in this case some of us might be experiencing 'deferred pain' where there is not all that much acid or in any case damage in the larynx and pharynx, though it feels that way.

Re: White tongue

use good mouth wash for flossing your mouth at least twice a day that would keep your mouth bacteria free and avoid such problem.

Re: White tongue

A Whooooooooooooooole other explanation for white tongue is yeast infection and too much sugar in diet.... which according to some can mean 'any.' My tongue was called a candida tongue this evening at a health food store... I got just a few things to try, did not spend a treasury to throw at it.. but if so, there is a rather draconian diet in store. (Very little starches, carbs, above all no sugar in anything)

Interestingly they also said, it is from acid, but acid as a product of the candida. The gal I spoke with also suggested that the reason I get such releif from a Vindaloo (love curry and there is no problem with LPR or reflux) is the candida doesn't know what to do with really spicy stuff. Not that I am encouraging you to eat a known trigger food for you, but if you don't know it to be, see how you fare with some very hot Indian food.... I find it also does a job on my tongue...
