The Tongue Feels Numb Like It Is Exposed To Hot Water?
Morning … it’s been a week my tongue feels numb, like bitter after being exposed to drinking / eating very hot … even though I don’t eat / drink hot …. I’m also not experiencing thrush …. my tongue also forms and the color is normal … it’s just that a week ago I consumed stomach acid medicine which was chewed without water (chewed up and swallowed my medication straight to sleep) ,, had 2 nights in a row I chewed the drug before going to sleep … the next day I started to feel a sensation like a burning tongue starting at the base of the tongue and now spreading throughout the tongue. I am worried about this condition … because whatever I eat is unclear … do I have a certain disease ???
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Burning mouth syndrome (BMS)
Infection of the tongue
Aloe nerve disorders
Our advice for you now is that you should check your complaint with the ENT doctor or dentist for further examination. With a direct check-up, misunderstandings can be avoided, tendencies and handling are more appropriate because conditions such as BMS for example, have many causes and their handling will depend on each cause.
Meanwhile, no need to worry too much, but immediately see a doctor. Avoid foods that are too hot, cold or acidic, and keep your oral cavity clean. So, hopefully answering your question.
