sore tongue

Is anyone else having any issues with their mouth? My tongue is sore and it appears to have tiny sores on the sides of it. I also have a metallic numb feeling\taste. I know it sounds weird but its the best description I can give. It is starting to hurt at times when I am eating.

Its a very common side effect from tx. Ask your doctor about an RX for magic mouthwash, while it won't cure it, it does seem to dumb it some what.........Hopefully this will let up as tx goes along......... Best to you.

No sores, but gum hurt when I brush my teeth.

I have been using biotene toothpaste and mouthwash which helps to keep a pH balance in the mouth.  There is also a perscription you can get for "magic mouthwash."  Among other things it contains lidocaine which helps numb your mouth.  I did ask my pharmacist about it and he is familar with it but it does need a script.  So far with the biotene, I have held my mouth in check.....(lol:  some of my family members might disagree with that statement)!
Good luck.
