Normal Tongue - There is Hope

So many people write to me asking if the orange tongue (e:paul,54192) ever resolved itself. I can totally understand their pain and concern as it was making my life a living hell. It did resolve itself. I did nothing extraordinary other than get a root canal on a tooth that was bothering me but it had already subsided before then mostly. After about 2 years it just went away. I still get geographic tongue every once and a while but its usually one nice pink slate and never orange.

I guess I also did start using a water pic ever day to clean my gums thoroughly.


Do you still suffer from orange tongue? Did you ever find out what the issue was?!
I too have been suffering from the same problem. Been to the doctor dozens of times, only to be told my tongue looks "normal' and to use a tongue brush if I am concerned. ...There are some days I wake up with very little orange and some days I look like I sucked on orange popsicle.
This is driving me crazy - it was nice to see someone else with the same issue.

Neem Toothpaste

I am giving this a try. Brush with neem, scrape tongue with scraper, chew gum. Its seems less orange. Next step is accupuncture if this does not work.

My Disgusting Geographic Orange Tongue

This Wednesday, I finally gave an appointment with a dentist that specializes in geographic tongue thanks to some research by (e:tinypliny). I am ready for it to be over. Hopefully they can do something about it.

Orange Tongue at The Gastroenterologist

Also has no idea about the orange tongue. He seemed totally surprised by it. Thinks maybe acid reflux, maybe the tooth, maybe something else but not related to Crohns. The fact that terry also has an orange tongue was the real strange part. He kept referring to my UC, and I was like, "I thought I had crohns?" He now seems to think it is UC instead which I guess is better and I can cut the meds from 3 to 2 pills a day.

The doc gave me a script for a test called prometheus IBD Serology 7. "Helps identify IDB and differentiate between UC and CD. Includes 7 tests: ASCA IgA, ASCA IgG, Anti-OmpC IgA, Anti-CBir1, NSNA ELISA, IFA perinuclear pattern, IFA DNase sensitivity."

He also told me to try prilosec for a short two week stint to see if it helps with orange tongue and to rule out GERD.

I think I am finally at the point where I am just going to try acupuncture. I mean I have spent probably $200 in copays at this point and gotten nothing from western medicine. Maybe its time to try something else.

Orange Tongue Continued

I think this might be the worst day of it ever. According to some reports I was reading it could be caused by a bacteria that produces melanin. They made it not sound very dangerous but I still hate it.

I can't believe it was barely present yesterday morning when I went to the dentist.

Orange Tongue For Tiny

As you can see the orange tongue can not take hold of the new tongue that grows out of the dead spots.

Wow (e:tinypliny), that link you posted was the lamest doc ever. It basically says, we found nothing, we have no idea.

I've fucking had it

I joke woke up at 7am to have the "doctor" take my $20, touch my throat and tell me my tongue looks freaking normal. It does not look normal. Then she said it might just be retaining the color of food I have eaten. I had to leave or I was going to kill her.

After a really stressful evening it turned an even prettier orange.

orange tongue continued

Tomorrow I have a doctors appt. No one seems to be able to figure it out.

Symptoms: orange tongue followed by spots that appear small and pink and grow larger. The spots never have orange.

Doctor thought geographic tongue but I can't find anything connecting geographic tongue to orange tongue.

Eventually the pink areas grow large and the tongue looks like new. Then it stops, several weeks go by and the cycle starts over. The orange never goes away.

Orange tongue and body PH

So I measured my morning PH as the test strip pocket suggests. Urine 5.75-6.0 , saliva 6.75. I guess I am acidic but according to the packet the healthiest urine is 6.0-6.9 and I was close. The second reading was almost exactly 6.0.

image

The more intereting/ gross part is that my orange tongue now also includes orange spit. I didn't reaalize till I spit it out to measure the Ph.

I get so frustrated when I read things like the following. I already eat a varied natural foods diet, I don't do drugs or drink, I exercise, I guess I have stress but who doesn't. I've barely ever taken antibiotics in my life, except for like during surgery and I sleep well. Not to mention my gastroenterologist can only schedule me in May 5th at 7:45am. What the frick? I need a new doctor. Its weird, I have money, I have insurance, I have a problem and there is no doctor - again.

I have experienced orange tongue since December 2007. I saw the gastroenterologist and told me it was a yeast infection in my mouth. I was give nDiflucan for about a week. It seemed to go away but it came back as soon as finished this medication. Same the antibiotics. Later I learned that its not a yeast infection. But it definitely has to do with the stomach. It definitley comes from a combination of extremeties like stress, eating poorly, not excersing, and not getting proper sleep and the misuse of antibiotics and over the counter medicines. I have ulcer, hiatal hernia, gastritis, and ulcerative proctoctis. I saw a macrobiologist doctor in February and he was able to tell me my deficiencies. According to him I was lacking oxygen, developing kidney stones, pancreatis (pancreatitis), etc. It all makes sense. Our bodies are not designed to intake chemicals. I completely changed my diet and starting taking probiotics and herbs to heal myself naturally. I have been improving slowly, I feel better and the orange coating is not as dark as before. Definitely take oil of oregano, garlic and mastic gum helps as well as eating organic whole foods. WE NEED TO DETOX OUR BODIES NATURALLY!



Seems there are lot of people with this issue:http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Ear--Nose--Throat/Orange-tongue/show/7117

At a minimum most of the people reporting this seem to agrees the bitter metal taste is terrible.

Maybe an allergy to metal to the metal in my new fake tooth - It seemed to start right after I got it?

hi everyone, i too have orange tongue. I actually got this years ago when i was a kid and had braces, no one could really figure it out, i was sent to specialist after specialist and they eventually decided it was an allergy to the metal in the braces, and took them out.

Yoga Night

Yoga was fun last night. I really nailed the headstand poses. Then afterwards I hung out with (e:tinypliny). We tried to figure out what is killing my tongue and making it orange.

I've been concerned more because now I have this massive heartburn with it. Tiny suggested changing my eating schedule to eat less before bed and too eat smaller portions throughout the day.

I tried reducing protein intake starting today but I'm not convinced my food is to acidic but rather its my eating habit or just my crohns attacking my upper GI. That being said I don't think our dinner helped although it was delicious. Maybe it's time for another doctors appt. I still blame the fake tooth.
