I've been getting small ulcers in my mouth for several years now, I usually just bit the pain and went on with it. But now I've gotten one on my tongue (now two) and the pain is so different that I can't get used to it. The first one seems to of healed up, but I don't think I can feel or taste anything there anymore, the second one started this morning. I also have one on the inside of my lip that I think came from biting my lip.
About the same time I started feeling very ill and had a severe sore throat, some thought it was strep (no doctors, so I didn't get a test.) I feel better, I'm still a bit clammy and while I can swallow without wincing, my throat is still tender.
The third and last thing I noticed around the time of these two problems was that my gums had become extra red and sore. Some spots even bleeding in small tears when I brush.
I really don't want to go to a doctor until I get back to school, but that's a week from now. Is there anything else I can do besides take a pain killer and gargle with salt water?
