I do NOT take drugs or medication, have never smoked, healthy&active. Terrific pain on one side of tongue, thought bit. After looking, both under sides seem to be engorged. Down in front/floor ofd mouth, all black&blue, but today there seems to be a couple pustulars on the ball, but I have NO sore throat. Right side under tongue, veins stand really big and blk&blue. No fever either.
Do you have idea of what this could be???

The most likely diagnosis here seems to be a mucocele which resembles veins as it is in a bluish color but this usually happens due to blockage of one of the minor salivary glands in the mucous membrane of the oral cavity.

I would recommend that you be seen by an ENT doctor or oral surgeon to confirm the diagnosis and then proceed from there.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
