Hi, I don't get tongue spasms, but I do get very sore gums and teeth. But I have been told this can be due to fluctuating female hormones too as I am in the menopause also. Peggy64 is also right, you can get an enlarged tongue if you're hypothyroid, sometimes it's possible to see indentations along the edges of your tongue where your teeth dig into it because it's enlarged.
I get muscle spasms all over my body, too. They are not painful but very annoying, especially while I am trying to sleep (I'm sure you could relate). It wasn't until just yesterday that my tongue spasmed for just a few seconds and then it went away. I wonder how this could be connected to thyroid problems? I may be hypo and will get tested again to find out why and all that good stuff. Hope everything works out for you!
I have an enlarged tongue that leaves marks of my teeth on it, as well as "burning tongue" syndrome. Anyone else? I can eat only bland foods....carbonation, toothpaste, mouthrinse, salty or spicy foods kill me!! I am also Hypo. Never knew that could be the cause. Always thought maybe my other health issues or medication may have caused it.
