Hello everyone,

so I went back to the dentist, she had another look but also with my history of being there 3 times previous, she had called in for another dentist to take a second look at my tongue (just incase she did miss something) and for extra reassurance. Long story short.... both dentists are not concerned at all in the way my tongue looks, I had a thorough look over of my tongue and neck, and was told that if there was any suspicion or concerns they would refer me to a specialist, but that is not the case and I need to try and stop worrying about this. They were both very lovely and detailed in what they were doing. I need to try and move on from this. The dentist did say that she noticed I had a coating on my tongue, when I said to her I was being treated for thrush, she said it wasn’t thrush but continue what the doctor has prescribed as there’s no harm. I asked her if it was leukoplakia and she told me to stop googling! And no it wasn’t sometimes people have a white tongue, mine just seems slightly whiter since I last saw her. And smoking and stress can cause this issue but not to worry about it. Sorry again for the long post! X

Great news!

Not real: Tongue cancer
Real: Health anxiety and smoking

Time to deal with the real!

How are you feeling today?
hi bigjetplane6

Thankyou for asking. I have been ok, kept myself busy sorting things ready for the kids to go back to school tomorrow, oh how I am excited. Strangely though the left side of my tongue yesterday was awful and today it’s fine but the right side is playing up, god knows what is going on. I stopped taking the nystatin for 24 hours because I was sure it was making me feel terribly sick, felt fine yesterday, so this morning I took a dose and within half an hour I honestly thought I was going to throw up! Not sure what I should do about that wether to continue or not. Anyway how are you? X

That's a normal side effect.
