Hi all. I'm new to the forum so i'm not sure if anyone here is qualified to give me a diagnostic answer or opinion but I really hope you guys can help me.

Ever since march I have been troubled with this very strange recurrence. It always happens during my sleep. I'll wake-up in the morning with this infection of some sort on my tongue. It looks like bite marks, and for awhile I was considering this to be the cause because it always occures on the side of my tongue. However, i've pretty much ruled out this possiblity because the most recent infection I was half asleep and actually felt this tingling sensation on the side of my tongue. These strange infections are very painful and feels like my tongue is swollen, but this isn't the only problem. The infection is always accompanied by extreme fatigue and muscle ache. I mean I feel like junk!

The fatigue and muscle ache goes away by the end of the day and i'll feel like my body is back to normal, however the tongue infection is present for sometime and usually goes away after a full week! Finally, this thing hits me once every month, but lately the past 6 weeks it's come about every 2 weeks.

I've been to 3 different doctors here in dallas and unfortunately none of them have been about to diagnose this problem! I'm forking a lot of money out for the doctor bills, yet all i'm getting is "i don't know's" and referrals. My next step is to see a dentist, someone who deals with "oral" practice, but my frustration is at the breaking point! If anyone here at this forum can give me any advice or possible answer to what in the world this thing is I will be forever grateful!!
