Customer Question
Hi, In...
Hi, In September 2014 I had a car accident that should have been fatal . Since then I have had a steady path of very serious dental issues, Jaw issues ,teeth extracted root canal crowns etc.Most recently Monday of this week I had a permanent crown placed over a root canal. I first assumed that the two days the route canal is exposed may have cut my tongue very badly however when I got to the doctors office he informed me that the damage to my tongue is not connected to my root canal I first assumed that the two days the root canal was exposed may have cut my tongue very badly however when I got to the doctors office he informed me that the damage to my tongue is not ....simply a coincidence. He has placed me on an antibiotic. That way I would describe what I see on my tongue is in the very back by my tonsils there is a solid row of 6 of pinkish red bumps. Also the same color and size bumps down one side. It is excruciating pain when I talk. Also for the last few years I have had a very extreme case of dry mouth and a white film over my tongue...
What is this?. My dentist said I should consult with a doctor... Also swallowing is very painful

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
