I'm 21/M/India. For the past 5 days, I'm feeling that my tongue has been swollen a bit because I'm unable to talk comfortably. I'm finding it not very comfortable when I say words with 'R' in them. Since 2 weeks, I've not been able to have good sleep because of my exams.
There is no pain or no teeth marks on my tongue nor any kind of itching. Please help me to deal with it. I hope it isn't a major problem.
Hi a friend of mine got a swollen tongue so bad from a medication she took, she almost died because it blocked her airway. I would go to the emergency room if it seems very swollen or worsens. Sometimes people are allergic to things and need to find out what they are allergic to through an allergist.

Well, its a bit hard to recollect what I had eaten for the last 30 days which had additives in it, but there hasn't been much of a change in my diet lately and I don't think I've consumed anything of that kind either. Erm, Could the change in a tooth paste make any difference? :/
Hi perhaps that is it! I would go to a natural one or at least the original one to see if it makes any difference. Some people say there is also a health problem connected with flouride although I am not saying there is an allergy to it.
Try going back to the toothpaste you used before. There just may be some additive in the new toothpaste that is aggravating your tongue. Obviously if it doesn't get better I would check with your Dr. Even your local pharmacist might beable to help.
Good luck and keep us posted...JJ...
When you come to the end of your rope..tie a knot and hang on!
