Apparently pregnancy + mustard on my corndog equals a very aggravated case of geographic tongue. I haven't had it get irritated in a long time, but its burning like hellfire right now. It actually bled a bit a few minutes after I was done eating. Stupid tongue :(



Here...be disgusted.

Quoting Dovahkiin:" What's wrong with it? o_O "


Geographic tongue is an inflammatory condition of the tongue affecting approximately 2% of the population as of 2003,[1] and 3% of as 2012.[2] It is characterized by discolored regions of taste buds or sometimes even cracks in the surface of the tongue. The condition is usually chronic, and frequently manifests after eating any of a range of exacerbating foods, or during times of stress, illness, or hormonal surges (particularly in women just before menstruating).




I've had it since I was a little kid...apparently it can get a lot worse during pregnancy *shrug*
