Hi there, I've got...

Hi there, I've got a question about some symptoms that I am seeing involving the mouth. There is swelling on the left side of the hard palate and the left side of the tongue has turned a yellowish color. Any idea what that may be?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No recent injuries, swelling has lasted about 4-5 days, and started out of nowhere, with no pain

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have Tourrettes, not that I know what use that is, but you never know.

There is minor discomfort, every now and then, hurts more when it's touched. Photos are turning out to be quite difficult to upload.

Hi,

You can try to upload it again.

How big is the swelling? Does it hurt when you touch it with your finger?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
