i have been having pain on the sides of my tongue. i went to an ent because i was also have throat pain for a month, pcp gave me pencillin, ent said the tongue pain is from tmj.
i have ms anyone ever hear of pain in the tongue and throat. i dont think its tmj b/c i am fine all day then the pain starts in the evening. he claims i am biting my tongue at night. i am due to see the neuro in july but didnt know if i should go sooner is this something w/the ms. never heard of this. my gag reflex was not good either he said but something w/my pallette was ok so not an emergency to see neuro.
I've not experienced pain like you describe in my tongue. Numbness or tingling, yes, but not pain. Also, I don't know much about the typical symptoms of TMJ which can cause a variety of issues.
I have no idea if this could be related to your MS or not. But if you have additional symptoms crop up, I would definitely try to see the neuro sooner. Otherwise, it's good that you have an appointment in just a matter of weeks.
actually i couldnt get in to see the neuro till july, unless of course its an emergency, they do have me on a cx list though. i researched tmj nothing about tongue issues were there. i was thinking of just seeing my dentist also.
JOZEE,Yes I have had tongue pain several times and have read on other MS sights that this is a symptom.
Hope this helps.
I have severe attacks of TN that also cause pain in my tongue. I hope for you that you don't have that.
