post tonsillectomy tongue pain

Hi, has anybody experienced tongue pain? My tonsillectomy (and post-op bleeding cauterization) were 4 months ago. Things were almost back to normal but then the busy season at work began, and now my tongue is killing me! When I see somebody I know I avoid them so I don't have to speak. I never even pick up my phone any more.

I've been to the ENT who says everything is "fine" and she sent me over to a Neurologist who I have yet to hear from.

I have read alot on these posts about losing taste in the tongue but that has not been a problem for me, speaking has.

Is there anybody out there who has experienced this?

Re: post tonsillectomy tongue pain

I had a tonsilectomy maybe... a little less than 3 weeks ago.

Parts of the back of my tounge still hurt, around where my tonsils were.

Parts of it still go numb... its weird, but my sense of taste has returned.
