my tongue started tingling at the beginning of this year and it lasted for a couple of weeks. i thougth it was odd and that it would never happen again...well, i was wrong...:( :confused: it happened again!! its here again!! i have no idea why or what is the cause of this THROBBING tingliness...its almost unbearable...if anyone else is having this problem, talk to me!! did you get a diagnosis? i dont want to go to the doctor and have them not know what it is....i just want it to go away.
i thought maybe it was the allergy med nasonex...or the indian food i had this weekend...or from the virus in my mouth...
let me know!
thanks,

  • My tongue has been doing the same thing, for over 5 years! My whole entire mouth also burns now. Rich spicy foods (that I have enjoed for ever) are not an option now. I can't even eat doritos because they have too much spices and my just kills me.I have been told that this because I have diabetes, but I think something else is going on and I am really worried about it.I wish you luck!

  • Hello...i also have been having the same sensation...its a throbbing tingle and it comes and goes off and on for long periods of time, i have lots of food allergies so it is possible that it could be this. BUT i would think that it would make my lips swell up like all my other allergies....please post any answer to this!!!

  • hi, the right side of my tongue has cuts in it and is swollen whenever i drink or eat or even smoke i get this burning tingling feeling and the only way to make it go away is sticking my tongue out and massaging it with my teeth, tried finding the cause but no luck, waiting to see if it persists and if so going to see my doctor.Bill

  • My tongue is also tingling and I've been trying to figure out what might cause it. What kind of allergies would cause this? What kind of treatments might there be? It's a yucky feeling and does worry me because I don't think it's normal. Any ideas? Thank you.

My Doctor advised me I had tongue neuropathy, although he'd never heard of it, that was the diagnosis. He put me on neurontin. The painful shocks continued, so I was sent to an oral surgeon, paid cash, no dental insurance, he immediately opened a book on his desk and declared I had Trigeminal Neuralgia. My Dr. didn't believe it and sent me to a neuralogist. He confirmed and I was placed on Trileptal. It takes weeks of the meds. to find relief and constantly raising doseages to continue relief. I opted for a Gamma Knife Radiation procedure which stopped the shocking like jags I was experiencing. Keep fighting!

  • Mine has been tingling for about 2 weeks, and its driving me crazy. Its 24/7 I have an annual phyisical this afternoon, and thats the first topic for the dr.Strange!My tongue actually tingle right side center.It started when I was rubbing the back of my neck at the base of my skull.I was afraid I had a brain tumor or something, because the sensation was directly related to the amount of pressure I applied.When I stopped rubbing my neck, the sensation stopped a few minutes later.

  • I have something like that, feels like the feeling you have after holding a 9volt battery to your tongue, the prickly feeling afterwards. I assume its caused by electricity generated by amalgam fillings, called Oral Galvinism. It started to occur after drinking something warm, warmth stimulates electricity. After I had a new amalgam filling placed it became stronger. Now I have it all the time, I'm thinking about having these fillings removed. I'm not sure it's the same thing you are talking about, but if it is, maybe it helps you. I also thought it was an allergy untill I read about this, now I'm pretty sure it's not, unfortunately doctors don't seem to know about this.

  • It's been awhile now since anyone has posted anything in this thread. I was wondering.. did the tingling go away for you guys? I hope so.Just yesterday I started getting a tingly feeling on the back of my tongue. It is now the afternoon of the next day and it is still tingling. I've been doing research and the most disturbing cause of a tingly tongue could be MS. It says symptoms of MS can arise from hot weather.. and it is very hot here. So it makes me worry even more. I also don't have the insurance or any money to see a doctor. So needless to say, this is worrying me. I was also wondering if it could be from the opinions I ate yesterday. I've kinda been thinking I could be allergic to them. But I don't know. I just want this tingling to stop =\

  • Mine has done the same and I finally figured it out. Iron deficiency. Mine got so bad it felt burnt every day. When you look up the deficiency of iron, it's burning tongue, fatigue etc... I have been taking an iron supplement now and it is beginning to subside. I hope this helps.
