Question Tongue Problem (HELP)

Hello, ok so here's how it goes, Every so often (most of the time after eating) I get this hard lump in the middle of my tongue, it stays there for about 30 minutes then it goes away. Any clue as to what this is? I don't really think it's a food allergy because I've gotten it from eating all kinds of different things before, maybe it's not related to eating. Any suggestions or help? Thanks and God Bless

Re: Tongue Problem (HELP)

I don't know if the same thing goes for the tongue as it does for the gums, but I wear a retainer after getting my braces off about 6 years ago. Every morning when I take the retainer out, I get lump in my gum and after a while it goes away. Doesn't seem to bother or hurt me, even though it happens every morning.

This may sound stupid, but have you had any piercings in the area? Sometimes scar tissue could be the case. It may very well be a food allergy, but if it's not bothering you and is only affecting your tongue, I don't think that would necessarily be the case. Have you visited a doctor or told the dentist of this problem? Maybe they would be able to shed some light on the issue.

Yes I have had my tongue pierced there before, but I took it out the same night (did'nt like the swelling) but that was like almost 2 years ago.
