It has been a long time since we last chatted....You can ask for me anytime 'ya know :)
The little white dots are most likely your taste buds...This is normal and nothing to worry about.
Concerning your tongue, however, if things do not get better over the weekend I would suggest you have a dentist have a look. They are really the ones who know most about the mouth and tongue.
I am sure this will go away and it is not some horrible disease.......
Don't let your anxiety get the better of you....things will be fine.
Now, go out and enjoy a wonderful fall weekend, ok? OK.
Don't forget to mash the positive (excellent is the most fun to push) feedback button.....without this important step on your part the funds you left on deposit are not released and my kids will spend another cold winter barefoot ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
