Hi everyone, a quick weird question:
Do any of you suffer with pain in the tongue that radiates to lower teeth and jaw and sometimes throat?
Mine comes suddenly and it can last a day or two, then goes away (though not completely) and then back again.
I haven't yet mentioned it to any of the doctors. I have a slight swelling of the middle of my throat, so I just checked my thyroid thoroughly - all ok. The endo suggested to go see an ENT guy to look down my throat.
Of course, a quick search of the symptoms on Google brings all sorts of head and neck cancers that could cause that. That might be entirely possible, of course, but before I get too panicked, I thought I'd ask here. We usually have a great assortment of unexplained symptoms. I've already considered salivary glands inflammation, though not sure it affects the tongue that much. Still, a good possibility.
I'm also being investigated for MCAS (mast cell activation syndrome) which might explain the on/off nature but the pain never really goes away, it only diminishes to bearable.
Let me know if you've got something like this and if so, what did your doctor say about it?
