Swollen tongue?

My tongue is swollen.  So swollen it has the teeth indentions on the sides.  It is also hurting, furred, and has a white bump on the back side.  

My gp is running some tests and is considering a biopsy.  At first we thought thyroid, but my tests are normal.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks?

Yeast infection?

Did your MD run blood tests to see if everything's what it ought to be?

Hope it's better soon!  Let us know what you find out.

An allergic reaction can cause tongue swelling.  So can yeast like Jackie mentioned.
