Hi, Tramadol can cause dry mouth, it has been known to affect peoples teeth, weakening them and causing 'crumbling' & chipping. So it would make sense that it could also affect your tongue. The best thing i can suggest is to drink plenty of water during the day & suck lozenges...
Hi. I happen to have this problem as well. When I sleep I mouth breathe with supplemental oxygen causing constant drying of the mouth. During the day, same thing. Also, some of my medications can cause dehydration. drink lots of fresh water daily. Soft drinks, coffee, alcohol, etc. actually make you thirsty and needing more water. Second, be sure you are getting enough Vitamin D. Third, take a daily vitamin and three or four folic acid supplements. Your doctor is the best source for these levels you may need.
The tongue and mouth regrows the lining every three days. This needs a lot of support with vitamins to be maintained. Be careful with sugarless candy. Do not take anything with nutrasweet or aspartame. Recent research has shown it not only causes weight gain but damages cells in the body. Many people do not realize they are allergic to it. As I am, I can tell you that aspartame causes severe headaches for me.
Not knowing your condition for the Tramadol or other medications, I find it unlikely to cause mouth sores. Your doctor can figure that out as well.
