I am thankful I found this site ... really my dentist did for me. I have had an "tongue and throat" problem for almost a year, at first i thought i had an allergic reaction to tomato and then to milk, so i took them out of my diet, saw an allergist, i do not have any food allergies except for hazlenut (which i have allways eaten) he did a RAST (blood) test and the skin test, nothing showed up, been to my GP, ENT he scoped and said it all looked find to my voice box, went to a GI doctor he was good but still didnt know and said to go to my OBGYN because it gets worse with hormonal fluxes, i can usually tell which days of the month are going to be worse for my tongue. went to the dentist and he looked at pictures, took picutres of my tongue and thought is sounded like Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae, doing more research does anyone with this also have swollen or enlarged Lingual Tonsils, i didnt even know what they were, they are on the back base of your tongue, i have the "U" shape of Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae but also it is bumpy behind it, does anyone else have this.

i am afraid to eat, i have really limited my diet, no rhym or reason what effects it but sometimes it feels like my thoroat is going to close up and that feeling freaks me out, if it is onlyEnlarged Circumvallate Papillae i know that wont happen but it is the unknown that scares me.

I am trying to find Dairy (milk and casien) free probiotics to try to see if it will help, it is hard to find dairy free ones. I have stopped using listerine toothpast after reading many of the posts saying listerine enflames the bumps, they havent gone down it does not feel normal at all.
I take claritin everyday which seems to help it, not sure why but i am taking 2 childrens chewable a day (the adult have lactose in them) i was taking tagament in case it was acid reflux, i stopped that last week and dont think there is a big difference. Sometimes the back of my throat even seems bumpy too.......

It just makes me nervous the unknown and i have been to many doctors and very tired of going, thankfully my new dentist was good and truly listend and looked into for me.

Any information anyone has would be great especially if you have bumps behind the "U of V" shapped Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae. Do you think Enlarged Circumvallate Papillae and lingual tonsils go hand in hand, all salivary....?
It is even bothersome the more I talk when they are swollen, they are tingly like i'm assuming do to it being enlarged?

I just went to a very good ENT and he thinks i know have thrush (yeast infection) this may be secondary to what else is going on, but i am treating it with Nystatin Oral Solution, i swish gargle and swollen 2 tsp 4 times a day, i go back in 10 days to see if it is better...... i'll let everyone know.

I am really glad to hear that you were able to get help from your dentist and that you are getting proper treatment for your disorder now. I think a lot of people forget that doctors are people too and that some are not as good at what they do than others so I'm glad that you met a good one. Keep us posted on how your treatment goes. Thanks!

I am having the same problem. I dont know what it is alls i know is that i dont like it nor do i want bumps on my tongue. I tend to over think things and it makes everything worse. My doctor gave me Nystatin to take for 14 days, went back and i still had "Thrush" so we tried 14 more days.. i went back todat and i have been taken off the Nystatin and put on some pill. After 5 weeks of this my body is exhausted.

Yesterday, I looked in the way back of my tongue and guess what. I have bumps too. It looks gross. It doesn't bother my yet but the front of my tongue burns/tingles all the time. My doctor is sending me to and ENT next week. The burning sensation has been going on two weeks. I am thinking now that since I have had constant sinus drainage for quite some time, that could be the problem for my who mouth issue. Will let you know what ENT says next.

I Wish everybody knew about this product it is for overgrowth of yeast in the body and it is a all natural product by (Get Healthy Again) and the product worked miracles for me, called Candelim elixir. I have a chronic problem called mucotaneous candidiasis and I am feeling better after 10 years of doctors not knowing what I have. Good luck Hope this Helps

For all of those of you that have ongoing thrush or oral yeast infection...Keep in mind that sometimes oral, vaginal or topical yeast infections can be rooted in a systemic infection, like Candida. For this medications are not as effective as a change in diet. Remove all SUGARS and CARBS from the diet. This includes fruit, dairy, all grains and carby vegetables such as peas and carrots. And don't eat cheese. If you can be disciplined for at least three days your thrush will improve. Keep in mind that when a yeast colony is dying or balancing your symptoms may worsen for a short time, but you will feel better soon after you feel worse. Try to avoid sugar and carby foods and renter then slowly into the diet. If you notice returning symptoms cut those foods out again. Our society eats more sugars than our bodies are designed to process and yeast based problems are often the result. This answer is from personal experience but based in research from myself and a Dr. that just wouldn't give up on my reoccurring yeast infections years ago. Best of luck.

It began with the sensation that I had a hair caught in the back of my throat. Within a week, I felt as though there was a lump in my throat just below the larynx. Soon, each time I ate, I felt as though I had food stuck in my throat, and my larynx would become very uncomfortable. I felt as though I needed to clear my throat constantly. I went to see a doctor and was prescribed penicillin-based antibiotics, but the doctor didn't have a definite diagnosis. The antibiotics came and went, but the sickness didn't. Actually, the sickness got worse, affecting my mouth and tongue, as well as my throat. The roof of my mouth felt rough, and my taste buds became inflamed, and plaque was forming on the very back of my tongue. Each time I ate, it seemed to get worse. I went back to the doctor. He gave me a prostate exam and some steroidal nasal spray. That's right, I went for a sore throat and got a prostate exam! WRONG END, BUDDY! Ugh! Well, needless to say, my throat problems weren't cured in that visit! A couple of weeks later I went back to the doctor, only to have him refer to the ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) specialist. Before I go any further, do the math. I've got at least $400 in doctor visits already, and no answers; except that my prostate is healthy.

On the second month of being ill, I decided to go with my own diagnosis, and to treat myself. I spent numerous hours researching and concluded that I have a systemic fungus or yeast overgrowth similar to candidiasis. Retracing my steps, I realized I was the perfect candidate for it. Prior to becoming ill, I had several rounds of steroid injections in my shoulders due to an injury. Additionally, I went through three-rounds of antibiotics in one year. Coupled with a poor diet and high stress levels, all those factors became the perfect storm for a terrible systemic yeast infection. All the steroids and antibiotics threw my system out of balance and allowed the yeast to thrive.

Once I came up with a diagnosis, I had to come up with a good treatment plan. Treating a systemic yeast infection requires serious measures, and dedication to a treatment program. I tried a few home remediesbefore I found something that really seemed to work. The treatment is aggressive and can last for weeks, if that's what it takes. Here's how I treated myself and how you can too -

What you'll need and what you'll need to do -

- Candidase capsules from a vitamin shop. These capsules help control candida overgrowth. Take 2 capsules 3 times daily between meals; 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.

- Garlic tablets. 2000 mg or higher. Garlic is hostile to fungus, and is good for you too! Take 1 tablet 3 times daily.

- Day 1 and 2, gargle twice per day with the following - Mix 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar and 1/8 tsp sea salt, in a shot-glass of warm water. Slowly add 1/8 tsp of aluminum-free baking soda to the mix. The mixture will fizz like soda as the baking soda neutralizes the acid in the vinegar Gargle deeply with this mixture and spit it out. Do not rinse or drink for 15 minutes. It's okay to swallow a little of the mixture as none of the ingredients is harmful to your health at these amounts. It only tastes terrible. Also, gargle an additional 2 times per day with the same mix, except exclude the vinegar. The baking soda helps produce a more alkaline mix which is hostile to fungus, neutralizing acids which are produced in your mouth and throat. After days 1 and 2 exclude the vinegar and continue to gargle deeply several times per day, especially after eating.

- Brush your teeth, tongue, and roof of the mouth thoroughly at least twice per day with toothpaste sprinkled with 1/8 tsp of baking soda. Try to reach as far towards the back of your tongue as possible to clean as much plaque or yeast as you can. Sterilize your toothbrush with boiling water or alcohol after each use. Do not use ANY mouthwash during this treatment period. The mouthwash may upset the already delicate bacterial balance in your mouth, which can lead to recurring yeast overgrowth.

- Change your diet. No dairy, sugar, sodium, bread, glucose, citrus, acidic or starchy foods. NO soda. No high fructose corn syrup. No alcoholic beverages. Basically, no processed foods, or junk food. You should eat rice, eggs, fresh veggies, sodium-free canned-veggies, fresh fruits, canned fruits, mixed nuts, and fresh meats (except pork), vegetable juice. It's very important to not eat breads or other baked goods which use yeast. NO YEAST OR SUGAR, PERIOD!

- Don't take antibiotics, steroids, or allergy and cold medications that can dry your throat excessively These will only make your condition worse or prolonged. Take benadryl during this treatment period, if you have allergies, or trouble sleeping.

If you follow these guidelines, your symptoms should improve rapidly. Within a few days, you should feel the difference. I highly recommend continuing this treatment at least a week after you feel better to reduce the chance of relapse. Don't jump back into your old diet as soon as you start feeling better. Gradually add your favorite foods back into your diet, or keep eating healthy.

I hope this helps someone beside just me!

Good luck, and get well soon!
