My symptoms began in August. I was diagnosed with a ragweed allergy a few years ago and assumed this could be a bad flare up. I was told by doctors I had fluid in my ears and I was prescribed nasal steroids and antihistamines. I get random pressure flare ups sensations in my right cheek area. My tongue has become very dry and I am aware of a weird sensory feeling on the back of my tongue, like it's "standing on end." In the past two months my gum line will sometimes become very cold. My dentist says my teeth and gums are perfect but he noticed the change in temp and my tongue is colder to the touch as well. I also experience sporadic right earache pain and a feeling there is fluid there. I saw an ENT a couple weeks ago and he said I have no more fluid in my ear and my tongue looks normal, he can't explain the sensory symptoms. My CTs are normal, have not had an MRI. Thyroid normal, glucose normal, cholesterol 183. When my gums get cold they are cold to the touch? My dentist is stumped, he suggested a carotid problem maybe but said as a 46 year old healthy woman he doubted that? I started taking Progesterone 14 days on 14 off shortly after these symptoms started but my GYN is unfamiliar with the symptoms too. The cold gums are driving me crazy as is the tongue. Any ideas or any input?? Thanks Could it be TMJ, I grind but no popping.
