@honestdoc would need your expert opinion here too. Thanks in advance

please have a look. Noticed these 2 months ago, after experiencing sharp pain near the throat. Like a 5 second sting while bring outdoors. led to me always trying to dislodge tonsil stones however none ever came. There was pain swallowing that went away in a week with salt gargles and antibiotics as I immediately had flu and a cough.

2 oral surgeons and 3 dentists later, today after approx 1 and a half month. 3 days ago, I had tooth extractions. 2 wisdoms and 4 infected teeth that already had RCTs years ago. The oral surgeon said that the two anterior teeth he removed had a chronic infection that cause an inflammation of the lymphoid tissue.

Note first three pictutes are of today (wherever u see teeth extracted) , the following are of two weeks+ ago.

Same, some burning but not on it, the area on the actual tongue above. I had chronic tooth infections as well. Just had extractions. How long have u had it? Applied any topicals thus far? Anything that gave relief?

Ohh that makes sense and sounds similar to mine.
I have had extraction because of an hidden infection ( didn't know it was infected until it was taken out).

I have this for about 7 months now ..I remember that I noticed this after my extraction. I didn't apply any topical gel yet.

Did you try any and that helps you? How long you have it and have you seen anyone for this?

Yes i actually had extractions 5 days ago due to hiddem infections that were said to be causing this. This is either an inflammation of the lingual tonsil or a hypertrophy of the lingual tonsil/foliate Papillae.
After the extractions mine seems to have flattened down a bit i suppose.

I have applied normal topicals meant to treat apthous ulcers but this isnt an ulcer per se. So they dont seem to be doing anything as such.

I have this approx 2 months now but it was way worse looking at the start.

Do you have any jaw, cheek, or pain radiating towards the ear or around the ear as well?

I believe the oral surgeon will be able to tell better, however nothing sinister as per what I see either. i am no doctor or specialist but just always good to be optimistic and i guess its just always a mystery how dental stuff causes such issues. Keep us updated and wishing i health!
Yeah I have jaw pain for 3 years now which is in the lower jaw around the ear area. Have seen all specialists and no relief yet.
With my jaw pain, dentist spotted this tooth issue which was painful from pressure on it like tapping biting etc. So I had root canal and followed by several retreatments on it. No relief and I pulled it 9 months ago. It was pulled as they suspect tooth is causing the jaw pain. But unfortunately it didn't help. Just lost the tooth.
When they took out , they said it's infected at the bottom.

I still have pain in jaw and my next molar gums hurts now.

I noticed this white spot thing on the tongue after my extraction which I have to get biopsy from oral surgeon.
The red patches on the side of the tongue are new and noticed last week but those are very painful . This is new and never got like this before.

I don't know if it's from teeth biting the tongue or from inflammation. But mine looks like big red patches.

I have to see the surgeon for my white spot on the tongue.

I will keep you posted. My white spot on tongue is different which I need to get biopsy. But the side of the tongue red patches looks similar to yours and I wonder if it's from inflammation in the mouth.

Keep me posted.
Do you have gum pain? I have swollen gums and I just went for X-rays today. They want me to do the deep cleaning.

One of the gum next to my extracted socket place is so much hurting and painful. It's swollen as per the hygienist.

Do you have bad breath with this growth on tongue?
