I was told that I got a stomach virus after having really wierd symptoms. I also realized that my tongue was green. Not the whole tongue but the top back portion of my tongue, what does this possibly mean? I hadnt eaten anything that whole day due to the virus. and it hadnt been there the previous day.
A âgreen top of the tongueâ does not indicate a specific disorder! Sometimes the whole tongue could be white/green due to dehydration (in cases of severe diarrhea) or a Candida infection (in cases of using large spectral antibiotics or having a deficiency in the immune system). Your pre-existing symptoms are more serious than the color of your tongue; you can investigate possible causes for the diarrhea, dizziness, and rectal bleeding you are experiencing. Blood in the stool should be treated with serious urgency. You can consult your general practitioner for baseline testing, and ask for a reference toa specialist afterwards.
