I have the same problem but I thought it was from the Fibro.
The pins and needles is symptomatic of nerve pain.
Do you have dry mouth too?
After I have a pain crisis that lasts 4-5 days of pain and no sleep it gets worse.
The pain is like my body is going to explode. It’s like I have too much spinal fluid. Inflammation... gastritis , etc so it’s affecting my body.
When it’s over, the mucous membrane and tongue are inflamed.
It causes me to bite my cheek and tongue so I’m left with ulcers and under my tongue.
I cannot eat anything salty or spicy, hot or too cold. Carbonated products... no way! I can’t taste it anyway.
I just saw a new dentist last week and he was concerned because the lack of saliva adds to cavities.
Watch your tongue for indication of your general health.
Lol... it really helps!
I can tell when I’m getting a fever or when my nutrition is not good.
If your tongue and/or throat is white,
Try to remove it with a paper towel or dry toothbrush. If it remains, it’s a sign of candidiasis (thrush) and you may need antibiotics either orally or a swish and swallow liquid.
If you come up with any relief measures please let me know.
I tried the “liquid saliva” and no luck.
Salt water gargles made it worse.
Chlortriamizole (?) really helps but it’s a script.
“Magic” mouthwash is really good but gross. It contains a blending of antibiotics, lidocaine and something else. Swish it for 30 sec and spit it out.
Your mouth will feel numb for awhile but it’s a relief for me. Btw... also a script is necessary.
I hope this helps
It feels like pins and needles on my tongue . Had to stop drinking unless the soda is flat then a sip for the flavor.
YES Wendy; sounds like many people have this problem and there answer is take the medication only with water. then wait a couple hours before anything carbonated some said they still got that feeling but it went away after about two months. Also some complaints about our taste buds. so just be aware. at the top of this page is a search bar type the name of the medication in there and read some about it. good luck.
