Bleeding tongue

Does anyone have a problem with their tongue bleeding after certain foods?

Sometimes after eating sweet foods e.g. cake, chocolate or biscuits I get a brown/black spot that swells up almost immediately and takes a day or so to subside down and disappear.

Other times I eat say some nut chocolate or nuts and it is like they have scratched my tongue and it bleeds from one spot for a short while.

Is this linked to the methotrexate and does anyone else have this?

    I've never heard of this before and certainly never experienced it despite years of meth. I think you should get it checked out by your GP and, in the interim, lay off the offending sweet stuff. It's likely to be nothing much but bleeding in the mouth shouldn't be ignored.

    I would definitely get your tongue checked out by your GP.

    That's never happened to me or my daughter who had MTX at a very high dose as one of her chemo drugs.

    Safety first :)

    Do let us know what he/she says.

    Love

    I think I have mentioned it on one of my GP visits, but have had so much going on I can't remember now.

    Am going again today so will bring this up too.

    Thank you

    Ps they should just give me a season ticket, I must go every week or other week these days!

    Hahaha! Hopefully once you have everything under control you'll go less often :wink:

    Best of luck and I hope the Dr has some answers for you.

    I don't associate this with meth either, it could be a food intolerance as it seems to be linked to specific things, but the best placed to advise is your GP; I hope he can help. DD

    thanks dd and frogmorton

    GP is more concerned about my pain during pooing so this is on hold again..but she has promised we will return to this in the future.
