I have had cramps in my tongue off & on for the last several years. This is very frightening & I've been worried about having tongue cancer, a stroke or a heart attack. I asked my dentist about it. He referred me to my doctor who referred me to an oral surgeon. None of them had ever heard of such a symptom. They all checked my tongue for tumors & found nothing wrong. Last night I was awakened from a sound sleep when I had a very strong cramp in my tongue. I was afraid to go back to sleep for fear I was having a stroke. Today I checked the internet for symptoms of stroke & didn't find that I have any symptoms. What causes this type of thing to happen? I am very worried about this. Does anyone know anything about this?
it could be secondary to lack of vitamin B-complex, please try taking supplements, I would also encourage you to consume more of fruits and vegetables. It is less likely to be a malignancy / transient ischemic attacks.
Thank you so much for your suggestions & help. I used to take vitamin B-complex, but switched to vitamin B-12. I don't eat a lot of fruits or vegatables, but I will make a point of eating them now. I'm so relieved that it doesn't appear to be anything that I can't correct myself. So much for doctors, dentists & oral surgeons. You'd think they would know enough to tell me that since they are professionals. I guess they just don't think outside the box. Thanks again & have a great Christmas!
