6 days ago I had a seizure. I have had them before and know how to deal with them. This time though, my tongue did not go back to normal within the first couple days. It is swollen on one side and I have only been able to eat maybe 2 or 3 meals these last 6 days because of how excruciating the pain has become.

Yesterday, I started taking some left over Cilndamycin HCL I had from a previous dentist appt with hopes that this will fix me. Does anybody have any advice or recommendations of other antibiotics I should try?

Thanks,
Mike

It's painful and ugly when it does, and i hate it for you guy. I'm going to give u an answer that I know u are going to hate, but I admit that I have never gotten an infection and at 47 my tongue looks n feels perfect - well, u know what i mean :)) U HAVE 2 go 2 ur dr or the ER and get a broad-spectrum antibiotic and take it for the full course, usually 7-10 days. They will show u how to mix warm salt water n baking soda to rinse ur mouth out 4-6 (i think) times a day n stuff like that. Dont go too long b/c u dont want to loose ur whole tongue due to infection!! Good luck and hope it helps....David
