    Have you been ever checked for GERD or just reflux? I have similar symptoms time to time, and I checked myself for every possible germs, thrush, bacteria etc. The result is always negative. But usually this white tongue starts after stomach discomfort, acid reflux or eating of too much carbs.

    Yea have had acid reflux in past but under control now. I've been brushing tongue more and whitening is going away but still have slight discomfort swallowing.

    Yea I have read about that, but I've been cleared. Biopsy from throat resulted in nothing. I used smokeless tobacco so of course was worried but everything was benign. But I still have very dry throat and discomfort when swallowing along with white on tongue. Just wonder if I should get ct scan if throat? This has been going on since mid December of 2017.

    Paul, you might benefit from taking some vitamin B 100 daily for a few weeks.
    Thrush is candida, an imbalance in the body and B helps the body rebalance. Also it occurs mostly when we are under stress and B feeds the nerves. Do not take B complex. It is not an adequate balance. Take B 100 one daily and after a week or two you may see the difference.

    Also, tobacco in the mouth is a very dangerous high risk of cancer. A friend had to have part of her jaw and teeth removed to get at a cancer. There are ways to change that habit, and other things to suck on, like meat jerky. Please take care of your health. It's a bugger when it's gone.

    Actually finally got some news.. its lichen planus. Unfortunately I have used smokeless tobacco which is most likely the cause. I have quit since before Christmas of 2017. But the effects still are still present. I have appt with my local doctor for my options this coming Friday.

    Wow Paul, I'm sorry. at least now you know.

    I just found this for you ~
    https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lichen-planus/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20351383

    That says it can clear up on its own. Check the side effects of any treatments offered to you. Let me know what your doctor says and how you are doing.
