Pain in tongue with movement

03/13/2009

Question:

I have a pain in the tongue, with movmement. When this began two years ago, it wandered from middle to the front, not it may go tthrough the entire tongue, but always on the right side. Sometimes it goes away, then comes back. It now feels like intense burning that shoots through the tongue, it used to feel like aching muscles. I checked with a doctor, ENT, neurologist and dentist, nothing was found.

Answer:

You may want to make an appointment to see an oral pathologist for evaluation of your mouth. Although this sounds as if it could be a neurological (nerve) problem, it would be impossible to make a definite diagnosis without doing a complete examination.
