Mouth problems

08/29/2007

Question:

My mouth has a lot of problems! It started feeling funny. It started with my teeth, then the inside of my cheeks, and now my tongue. I started chewing the inside of my cheeks and I have never done this before, but for some reason I can`t stop. My teeth feel better, but my tongue feels scalded, white in the middle, and the edges are blochy white (different from the middle). This is going on about a month and a half and no better. I am only 28 and don`t know what this is. Please help find an answer!

Answer:

Your condition could be due to anything from grinding your teeth to medication interaction to a systemic disorder.  I suggest you see your local dentist.
