My Tongue Tingles ~ Kind Of Even Almost Burns

About 2 weeks ago my tongue started getting this tingly feeling.., You know, like after you eat a peppermint.  It was constant during the day and then in the middle of the night it would go away.  I would wake up feeling no tingle...... Until I ate and took my herbs.   Sometimes I felt like my tongue might be swelling and it almost hurt.  The roof of my mouth was getting sore also.

I know it is an allergy, but I can't figure out what I am allergic to.  I have been eating brown rice cakes with alomond butter and carob chips.  I know I have an allergy to brown rice, but never has it made my tongue tingle.

I stopped everything!!  No Herbs, No Brown Rice!!!  Nothing EXCEPT, digestive enzymes and a probiotic.  Oh... and I did take an herb.  I took Pau d Arco to help fight the inflamation I might of had.  I knew I wasn't allergic to Pau d Arco.

Today,  the tingle is so faint that I can hardly tell it is there.  I still don't know what I was eating or taking that was causing this.   I will have to add the things back in slowly so I can figure it out.

I am so glad that tingle is going away.  It was starting to get really annoying!!

UPDATE 11/07/2010   Yesterday, I ate an apple for my snack at 2:00 PM, It was just a small apple and I was still hungry so I ate some yogurt.... More than I should of.  With the yogurt, I threw in some carob chips.  So all total I probably ate about 50 carbs.

My tongue and mouth started burning.  My lips tingled so much that it felt like they were vibrating.

I think my trouble is carbs.  I am really cutting them back this week, just to see what happens.

UPDATE 12/4/2010   I think I am getting close to a solution for my burning tongue, as soon as I figure it out, I will post it.

Here it is!!!
Burning Tongue Gone ~ Ringing In Ears Gone ~ My Fight To Kill Candida And Parasites Once And For All

****This blog is for my own healing, if you read and try something I do... you will be trying it at your own risk. I do some pretty crazy things to heal, some work, some don't. So please, check with your doctor before you do anything I do.


  1. That has really got to be frustrating. I am sorry you are allergic to brown rice! I eat a ton of it now that I can't have potatoes. I have it for dinner and munch on the rice cakes and puffed rice.
    Sure hope you figure it out quickly.

    Sorry if this is obvious, but have you looked into a Calcium deficiency (tetany) or a vitamin B6 or B12 deficiency? These can all cause tongue tingling.

    Just so it isn't overlooked....take care.

  3. Hi Anonymous,
    Thank you so much for your comment.

    Yes, I have looked into calcium and B vitamins. That was one of my first things I did.

    I started taking more B2 and the burn improved slightly... but it is still there.

    I am thinking it is probably my gallbladder.

    I am having an issue right now with my tongue doing this. It tends to happen more frequently and I heard spreading yogurt over your tongue will help the natural bacteria and enzymes want to flourish but it only helped to stop the tingling for like the first 2 times and the 3rd time made my tongue tingle so bad that it spasmed and made my whole mouth feel weird. I am looking into several digestive issues that may cause it such as sensitivity to gluten, celiac disease, candida, and even looking into possible parasites (since I also have trouble with intestinal and the mouth is the first part of the digestion process so worth a look into). Lately though it's not just my tongue spasming, my uvula (dangling tear drop thing at the back of the throat) has been swelling on and off. I tried to chalk it up to just allergies but it happens randomly, even without the allergies draining. So hopefully I hear something back soon before it gets worse since it's pretty annoying and is obviously wearing my body out. Good luck and I hope you find your answer soon. Look into some other food related symptoms, because I know candida can also create food allergies to things you weren't allergic to before. Might help...

    1. It took me a long time to figure it out.... once I got rid of the parasites the candida started healing. Digestion is a lot of the problem with burning tongue. I did a lot of enemas, cleansing ... eventually it went away. I have to keep my liver cleansed or I feel it start to tingle again.

    This blog is kind of old. I'm having the tingling tongue thing, too. I think this might be a sign of yeast getting out of control in the mouth. I know it's a symptom that can lead to thrush. Personally, I just recently started getting it, and I'm sure it's got something to do with potatoes. I just realized, looking back over the last couple weeks of feeling like crap, that it usually happens around the time of the potatoes - which are candia diet approved on some sites! I've always eaten potatoes with no problem, although I haven't had any in awhile. So I don't know, I'm gonna cut them out completely. I also ate food with "sucralose" in it, which is a sugar derivative and not candida approved. I thought my iron drink was sugar/carb free.

    Anyway, I hope you're doing better. Also, check the carob chips for sucralose or any other sugar derivative type product. And yeah, I agree- it might have something to do with the carbs. But you must be doing well, if the candida is going crazy upon eating carob or carbs. Organisms will do what they gotta do in order to survive; they, like us - like a virus, will adapt. So this might be a sign that you're doing very well. And god, it is so hard. Some days, I literally get depressed. All I want is to be normal again! Lol.

  6. Oscuranotte,
    That post is old but my blog is still going. I just don't do a lot with candida any longer since I am doing very well. It is very hard... you are correct. I still watch my carbs but don't have to like I used to.

    I don't use sucralose unless someone sneaks it in on me. I try only to do natural sugars.
