i have the exact same problem with my tongue. It's comforting to know know that i'm not alone :wink: . I have used all kinds of local oral remedies but these don't seem to have any effect at all.
I do have a chipped tooth on the one jaw and now and again it cuts my tongue - I need to have it filled or removed. But then again I do suffer this infliction even on the side of the tongue where I have normal teeth. The worst affected area is right at the back of the tongue.
I have sort of identified some aggravating causes - alcohol, spicy foods, and dried meat - and for now i'm abstaining from these! Other than these I cannot explain this problem!
|i have the exact same problem as well and it started after a tooth got chipped which has a very large filling I will be getting the filling removed on the 10 of may 2006 my dentist tells me the nerve is dieing and it may be leaking a mild infection which can cause my problem with the tongue touch wood I hope so he is going to do a root canal and replace the filling with a different type of filling as he tells me some types of older fillings can cause problems over the years especially the cheaper type of fillings given on the nhs health plan in the uk I will update my post as I get treatment and more info on what my dentist is using
