I've been trying to get a correct diagnosis for about 6 years now. I have a new sign that I remeber reading about but can't find the information to take to my doctor. My tongue has taken on the indentions of my teeth. I remember reading about a specific disease that had this as a symptom(sign) does anybody know of it?
the other symptoms signs
swelling of ankles
pancreatice insufficency (due to cyst on pancrease)
high blood pressure
erratic blood sugar levels
heart palipitations
hair loss
facial hair growth
urinary incontence
irregular periods

Please help if you can.
Thanks so much for reading

  • Hi CJS. I'm not sure if your tongue symptoms are related to the other symptoms. For reference, there is a condition called Macroglossia (large tongue) where the tongue is larger than the cavity it normally rests in, and so it basically ends up sitting in the area of your teeth. This is however, harmless from what I can recall. Of course, as you mention, it could also be a symptom of another condition.Good luck!

  • Sounds like you have a scalloped tongue. Look up a picture on google images and read about it. It's not as bad as you think if it's scalloped tongue, hoped this helps! :)
