Can someone please put me in touch with a link in regards to the white tongue and swollen tongue in relation to thyroid disease? I did a search on here, but the link I keep coming up with is broken. I want to be armed when I go in to show the endo. Also, does anyone know what else it could be other than thrush?
Kitty, my tongue definitely gets the ridges on the sides like yours. It is most annoying because I am on the phone all day and keep biting it!
This is the 3rd episode of what I call thrush since the end of may. I went to the GP the second time and she said she "didn't think" it was thrush, but didn't do a culture either. This time it definitely is thrush. Very curdy and when I scraped it there was red and it was burning underneath. I called the endo right away to get my TSH checked. Should have the results soon (if she would ever answer her phone!).
May TSH was withing normal range (although symptoms still presented) 2.76
I am treating it with probiotics, acidophilus and nystatin. It is getting much better than it looked two days ago.
No meds for thyroid as they believe it is post partum thyroiditis. The endo makes me laugh as she said I should be feeling no symptoms with TSH of 2.76 and now I am about to lose my job. She is the only endo in town my insurance covers. I curse HMO!
