I have sore throat from acid reflux (just have been diagnosed today) and often have sour taste after eating,. and just now i've discovered i have quiet a few swollen taste buds at the back of the tongue!! does anyone else have the same problem?? any advice how to heal them??
my doctor gave me pantoprazole/protonix to take . , will this also help to reduce the swollen taste buds??
i'm so worried this is becoming really serious :'(
If you've just taken a close look at your tongue in a way that you've never done before - never closely looked at the 'far back area' of the tongue - you may not have noticed that that area of the tongue normally has what looks like raised 'bumpy' areas. It's normal. But if you think this is abnormal, check with your doc and have it checked out further.
