Hello

How old are you?

Any trouble swallowing? Pain with swallowing? Are you eating regular food?

Any bleeding?

Can you send a picture?

29 yrs old no trouble swallowing. Eating regularly. No bleeding that I've noticed.

Here is the back of the tongue. I can't get a great picture.

It is a little hard to see the bumps. This could be transient lingual papillitis or canker sores under your tongue. Nothing to do about these aside from pain relief with oral gels/ointments that can numb the area.

The back of the tongue actually looks pretty normal. Those bumps are called the circuvallate papillae. They can sometimes get a little inflamed especially when you are sick.

Regardless, it does not look concerning. You may be getting slightly sick.

Hope this helps.

The bumps under my tongue are following the veins. Is that a cause to worry? And the big ones are along the strip under my tongue

Oh I see. The ones along the veins are normal and many people have them. Nothing to worry about.

The big ones along the strip under your tongue are actually the opening of one of your salivary ducts (Wharton's duct). They look pretty normal in that picture. Hope that clears it up.

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.
