Has this ever happened to anyone. Yesterday I started having severe abdominal pains on my right side. I do not have an appendix so I know that was not it. I thought I may have gas, but over the course of the night, my pains became increasingly worse. I literally could not turn on my side without losing my breath. I made it through the night, but when I was brushing my teeth this morning, the back of my tounge had like black stuff on it. It did not brush off easily either. I did not eat any supper last night and am really puzzled about what this could be. Any suggestions?
This would definitely be a question for your doctor. If you're in pain and your tongue is coated, go to the doctor asap! I have absolutely no idea what it could be, but the best answer is to seek professional help.
