this all started about 4 weeks ago,

Symptoms are:

Dry mouth, i drink 10 bottles of water A DAY and still feel as if my mouth is dry.

Blood blisters at the top of my mouth that burst on contact, they drain with blood for up to 30 mins.

a heart burn like sensation in the back of my throat.

tongue is always a yellow/white color

cant eat solids or they will hurt the roof of my mouth, due to dry-ness

bad taste in my mouth all the time, its so bad that at times i have gagged.



i am only 13, my parents will not take any course of action, so i need to prove that there is something wrong here. i have actually gone to the doctors a few times but they didnt know what was wrong, that kinda convinced my parents that nothings wrong.


If anybody could offer any help it would be appreciated.

  • Usually a white coated tongue indicates a yeast overgrowth candida, that can be treated with nystatin powder in a capsule form, i had this myself, not sure on the blisters but being that thirsty i would see if they would rule out diabetes or have, hope this helps

  • i am on allergie medican for my tongue, its not improving, also my dad is a doctor, he says diabetes does not fit what i have. only the dry mouth, i am also ruling out diabetes because my father is a diagnostitian so he has seen plenty of cases of diabetes. i also rule out diabetes because i was not born with it and have never had a "sweet tooth" i eat cake and candy every once and awhile but not enough to cause diabetes. i am getting tested for diabetes anyway. if anybody has any other ideas about what this could be please post it, New symtons: hurts to drink cant eat solids or soups, everything i eat has to be put in the blender and eaten as a milkshake stomach aches, almost like a stabbing pain (if these are symtons, just thought that i should post all new strange activity) Edit: i have found out that the old symtons in the first post of mine could be connected to these new ones.

  • What medications are you taking or have taken before and after these problems started? Including over the counter medicines and herbs, nutritional, and vitamin/mineral supplements. Some allergy medicines, actually many do cause dry mouth btw; so which one are you taking now?Are you running any fevers? Are you losing weight? Is your wt in the normal range, and were you at a normal wt when the symptoms began? Do you sweat a lot? Urinate more frequently or at night? Diarrea?If your dad is a diagnostician, what does he think this could be? Have you been tested for possible infections including viruses, candida and bacterial infections? Been tested for Mono, strep, herpes etc?Do you catch infections easily? Get any boils and abscesses lately anywhere in or on your body?What country do you live in?So many more questions could be asked... these are just a start.Your answers to these questions may help others come up with ideas as to what coud be going on and lead to further questions. You did say you have been to other drs and your dad is a diagnostian; so your parents have not totally ignored your complaints at least as you have just had them for about 4 weeks.Good luck in finding out what is going on. Your screen name is interesting, Eboli? Why did you choose that name? Just curious.i am on allergie medican for my tongue, its not improving, also my dad is a doctor, he says diabetes does not fit what i have. only the dry mouth, i am also ruling out diabetes because my father is a diagnostitian so he has seen plenty of cases of diabetes. i also rule out diabetes because i was not born with it and have never had a "sweet tooth" i eat cake and candy every once and awhile but not enough to cause diabetes. i am getting tested for diabetes anyway. if anybody has any other ideas about what this could be please post it, New symtons: hurts to drink cant eat solids or soups, everything i eat has to be put in the blender and eaten as a milkshake stomach aches, almost like a stabbing pain (if these are symtons, just thought that i should post all new strange activity) Edit: i have found out that the old symtons in the first post of mine could be connected to these new ones.

Just curious. no i have not taken any medication for awhile, i do however take a daily vitamin that i have been taking since i was 10. + i only take aries for allergies and i have been taking it for about 2 months now.everyday i am soaked in sweat, diarrea with spots of blood (bad thing?) and yes i visit the washroom at least 5 times before i go to bedmy father has no idea what i have, he doesnt really have time to diagnose besides when he gets home, and he is only home from 5:00pm to the morning so he doesnt really have an idea about what ive goti have been tested for everything you mentioned and more, all came up negative. no i dont catch bugs and infections easily, only things i have are boils/blisters in my mouth they swell up and if my tongue even slightly rubs agains them they pop and they drain with blood for up to 30 mins. then another one will form there again and they will grow until i pop them by acident again, it is also VERY painful.

  • If you have diarreah with spots of blood - well you need to have a colonscopy done. You sound like you might have ulcerative colitis or crohns disease. Boils in the mouth are common with both. Here are a list of symptoms you can get with IBD (not to be confused with IBS): Diarreah with or without blood ConstipationAbnormal looking bowelsIncrease in bowel movementsGasNoisey intestinesAbdominal pain (not everyone tho)FatiugeDry mouthDry eyesGERD (acid reflux)Burning mouth/toungeMouth ulcers/boils (can be small and they are VERY painful)Loss of appetitePainful digestion Did you tell the doctor about the blood in your BM's? If not you need to, and if he says its nothing then you need to find a new doctor. If the blood is bright red it could be coming from hemmorids or somewhere in the lower part of the colon, but most likely it is from inflammation of the colon. Try www.healingwell.com for more info on both Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns. Good Luck

  • I'm not quite sure where you are getting your diabetes info, but your source is wrong. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.Myth #3 Eating too much sugar causes diabetes. No. Diabetes is caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. Thrush (that stuff on your tongue)Thrush is a commonly used term to describe a fungal infection caused by organism called Candida Albicans. The condition is also known as Candidiasis or Moniliasis. These infections are usually trivial though inconvenient but in some people who are immunosuppressed they may be life threatening. Patients with diabetes are prone to candidal infections particularly if they are poorly controlled. Vaginal or mouth infections are common complaints which result in a diagnosis of diabetes which had previously not been suspected. The organism Candida is universally present in nature and is often encountered in the mouth and stools of people who are in very good health. Blood blisters in the mouth might be PemphigusFrom MayoClinic.com Special to CNN.comIntroductionPemphigus is a group of rare skin disorders that cause blisters of your skin or mucous membranes, such as in your mouth or on your genitals.Pemphigus usually occurs in people between the ages of 30 and 60, but it also can affect children and older adults. Men and women develop pemphigus equally, and it affects all races and cultures. However, pemphigus tends to be more common in people of Middle Eastern or Jewish descent.Usually a chronic condition, pemphigus is best controlled by early diagnosis and treatment, which may include medications or treatments similar to those used for severe burns. Left untreated, pemphigus may be fatal.Signs and symptomsPemphigus is characterized by blisters on your skin and mucous membranes. The blisters rupture easily, leaving open sores, which may ooze and become infected. The signs and symptoms of the three main types of pemphigus differ depending on the type. Also, while looking at IBD, look at gastrochesis.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • thank you very much, i did not tell my doctor about the blood in my diarreah because it only started about 2 days ago, at the time when it started there was no blood that i noticed. the blood is a deep red almost black? what does this mean? also i have no painful digestion no constapation and also i have a new symptom: bleeding from the tongue, roof of my mouth and gums. Dark red almost black blood in the bowels means that it is coming from the small intestine or stomach. Both could be caused by crohns disease. The bleeding and ulcers in the mouth can also be caused by crohns disease. It is VERY important that you talk to both your parents and your doctor. If your dad is a doctor you should tell him what I am telling you. I have Crohns myself and I understand exactly what you are talking about. You really need to be tested and put on medicine. Crohns is a chronic illness with no cure, but it can be kept under control and even go into remission on the right kind of medication. Please talk to someone who will listen...

  • You need to tell your dad to stop quessing and run a test for diabetes. You could be having side effects from the medicine and not be eating correctly resulting in constipation...well, with your dad in the house, you should be talking with him instead of the internet.

  • Isn't that what he said? Diabetes---he should be able to check your blood sugar easily, but you would need to do a fasting blood sugar, most likely. It could be some type of dental sensitivity, too.

  • Diabetes does NOT cause bloody stool or abdominal pain. The shakiness you are experiencing is caused by malnutrition and because your body is using all its energy to digest food. Celiac is also common with Crohns and could be causing the shakiness too. You should aslo ask for a simple blood test to rule it out.
