Customer Question

Hi, 5 months ago i got a canker sore under my tongue. It has went away but my tongue was never the same. Now i have pain under my tongue, that at times makes my eye tear. The pain i have now is more under tongue, closer to the back of the tongue. Also, not sure if the area behind teeth, under the tongue looks "normal".

how about this picture
the issue is the area behind the teeth that looks swollen on both sides
Expert:  dr.behere replied 13 days ago.
Hello,The swollen areas are perfectly normal. They are called as fimbriated tissue folds present on the ventral surface of the tongue, everybody has them.That area of the tongue also has varicose veins, called lingual varices, which are slightly blue in colour, they are also normal.Hope this answers your question. Please leave a positive rating if my answer has helped you.I do not get credit for it otherwise!Regards, *****
