As you know I am suffering this for almost 2 years now. This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012).
I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times. In any case, I think the problems on my tongue are related to that encounter. Girl I was with refused to test for anything.
Last week I went to a dermatologist who ordered a series of tests including HIV (despite being tested negative several times with both Elisa and PCR), syphilis and other tests.
I found an interesting article on xerostomia that might be interesting to read:
For information, I am in my mid 30's, heterosexual and I was healthy as a horse until February 2012. I have a stable partner and we use condoms. We want to have babies, but I won't dispose of condoms until I find what's goin on with me.
As usual, I will keep updating my journal until I find what's causing this.
