Hi all, the other day my tongue started to hurt so i checked it out in the mirror and noticed i had a deep split down the centre of my tongue and my tongue was a white colour(not inside the split that was normal colour).
then the next day i woke up and had a sore throat.

a couple of days later the white on my tongue is not as bad and my throat feels a bit better but i still have a deep split down the centre of my tongue and it still stings when i drink tea ect.

one more thing i went to the dentist for a check up about a week before
i had any problems.

  • Hi I have had the same thing...it is called a fissure down the center of the tongue and can be a benign condition or herpetic (like the kind that causes cold sores) glossitis...for which you can take Valtrex to help it considerably.It can be communicable so that is a real bummer.

  • I can't remember exactly which vitamin it is (D maybe...), a deficiency of it causes it if I'm thinking about the same thing you're describing.
