hypothyroidism and swollen/scalloped/painful tongue

I have hypothyroidism and have had three episodes where my tongue swells, gets scalloped, turns red/blue, and has bumps like ulcers on the bottom side It is painful.  I have brought it up to my endo and he says he's never heard of this with hypo and that's not the problem.  I'm lost as this is my 7th endo because I have NEVER once tested normal no matter what meds they put me on with over 20 years of treatment.

If you have your latest labs, please post Free T3, Free T4 and ysh, with the reference ranges provided. This way members can see where you are in regards to your thyrois. I have heard of other thyroid sufferers having the same symptom with the tongue, I can't imagine why your MD has not? Please post labs, Good luck FTB4
