| | Bumps on the back of my tongue
I've been wondering about all this for quite some time. This has been going on for a couple years now, but has recently (seemingly) gotten a bit worse. First of all im 22 years old, 6 ft 1, caucasian, 190 lbs, good shape, active. I smoke but aim giving it up, nearly completed that task
However, on the very back of my tongue I can notice a few red bumps, I dont know what they are, they dont hurt or anything their just.. there, and also I have some kind of white crap that grows on my toungue like a fungus or something, like hair or something, usually I can brush most of it away with a tooth brush, and after brushing my teeth, or drinking beer I feel like i have a lerge plegm buildup that kinda makes me want to gag.. actually only when I drink is when it makes me gag. If i try to smoke without taking a sip of something between every few drags I choke slightly.
I was wondering if anyone had an idea what this is? I dont have health insurance and can't afford to go to a doctor.... however if necessary I will, ,I just want to know if anyone knows what the deal is here.
