Odd white patterns on tongue

Hello everyone. I have been having a serious issue with my tongue for a couple of years now. Slowly but surely, there have been these odd looking patterns forming all around my tongue. It started just on the tip but has been slowly working its' way to the back. I fear of what would happen if that did occur.

It does not hurt what’s so ever. In fact, I would never have noticed it if I hadn't looked at it. My doctor told me that it was nothing to worry about and that it would go away in time; that was 7 months ago. There have been a few incidents in the past where I tried to brush my tongue but it would start to bleed. Since then, I have been using plenty of Listerine and scope but have seen no improvement.

I can't upload images of my tongue but there are a few that I have uploaded to a photo bucket account. Just copy and paste them into the address bar to view them.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Please repost or email me at garble_glo@yahoo.com. Thank you again.
