dark spots on tongue
I am 38 years old and I have been to the dr. for my yearly check up and everything is great.  I  found out that I was very anemic so he put me on iron pills.  For about 2 years I have had these dark spots on my tongue.  They came when my anemia started to get very bad because I was eating ice ALL the time.  The spots that are on my tongue don't hurt nor are they sore but, they are kind of ugly and I am self conscience about them.  Do you have any suggestions on what it maybe?

Hi,
You should seek advice from a dental professional - either a dentist or hygienist.  They can take a close look and refer you to an oral pathologist if necessary.  You should go soon so you can rule out anything dangerous.

I am 32, have suffered with severe cases of anemia with my pregnancies...all 6. i noticed black spots on my tongue a few years ago, but i dismissed them as being an emergency because they dont hurt. In fact, i dont even notice they are there until i look in the mirror.
Please let me know if u have found any more information about this strange outbreak...for lack of better terminology. I too am beginning to get a bit self concious about the way it looks in my mouth.

I am 37 and I too suffer from this. I had my first spot at 9 years old. I am so insecure about this. Mine are getting worse on the tip of my tongue. Have an appointment with cosmetic dentist will post results.
