White tongue. No blood. What is it?

This morning I noticed my tongue was white and thick with something on it. At first it was hard to get off,with much poking at it I managed to get a lot of it off but some of it still won t come off. I thought it may be thrush but it came off and isn t open/bleeding? And it is not on the sides of my mouth although I think it started there....

You are having oral thrush, a candidal should go for blood test to rule out diabetes Mellitus.
