Tongue swelling and pain is also caused by too much salt, according to my dentist who I think is great. This made sense with my habits and pattern of symptoms so I tried it. And very soon felt much better. There is no doubt that it all started years ago with my 4 month use of Adderall and then my intermittent use which resulted in a "1 to 1" correlation with the tongue pain and redness. But then when I retired and stopped the Adderall it came back at one point and just stayed bad. I tried food journaling for 3 months and it got worse and worse (because I never suspected salt and was actually consuming more for various reasons). Maybe amphetamine salts stress out our salt balancing symptoms(??)
I push against the back of my teeth with my tongue and it hurts. When I go to sleep, I consciously make an effort to open my mouth a bit and relax my tongue, sometimes putting the tip of my tongue between my teeth. It helps to try to relax those muscles you are using. Even if it's only once every once in a while.
ouch I know how that feels. Ive rubbed so hard Ive actually caused my tongue to bleed. I would call your doctor asap about getting your dose lowered. It can cause serious dental issues down the road. the more you rub your teeth the more enamel you could be taking off. Which will cause you to have the problems I am now having and trust me its awful.
