thank you, XXXXX XXXXX the tip of my tongue that is red resembles an arch on one side and a right angel on the other side, sort of like a half moon, angular on one side. it's texture is rough and somewhat irritated, although it does not bother me all of the time. at first i thought it was an allergy to my toothpaste and i changed to an all natural brand and that did not help. i also changed my toothbrush
. it has definate boarders on one side,however, the other side is a bit diffiused, just a bit. the side with definate boaders is the angular side. the red tip has been present about 1 1/2 -2 weeks. at the same time, i got very fatigued, and weak and that is when the doctor did a blood test which indicated hypothyroid. it all happened at once. i took the thyroid medicine and had an allergic reaction to it, and i am not taking anything now. my next dr appt is in 1 week. trying to help myself, i saw on the internet that this type of tongue condition can be a vitamin difficiency, so i started taking b-complex. i wonder if the difficiency is really what is going on with the thyroid. that is,maybe it is all just a difficiency? the red tip is 1 1/4 " wide, covering the tip and 1/2" deep, from tip to rear of tongue. it does not hurt, but it is somewhat irritated. the sides of my tongue have some cracks as though they have been cut or sliced. these cracks are just on the front
and they are not really soar. when it first happened, sweet things bothered me, so i cut out sweets. i do have fibromalagia and chronic fatigue syndrome. it seemed under control, however, this winter i had a lot of stress, and i did not take vitamins or pay careful attention to nutrition. i hope this is enough iformation. thank you.
