I have noticed that my tongue has become sensitive and
I do not see any change in appearance or size.
The only change is some new medications I am taking. Could that be the cause of my sensitivity?
Please see detailed answer.
Hi and Welcome to Ask a Doctor service. I have read your question and here is my advice.
The increased sensitivity of tongue may have many causes. Plavix can cause hypersensitive involving the skin, so it may be possibly the drug few cases of taste disturbance have been reported with Plavix. So there is a possibility, however if thier is no change in color, no Blisters or ulcers then it's unlikely to be any big concern. We can just watch it carefully.Certain foods may also cause sore tongue so just to keep am eye on that. We also suggest B complex supplements in such patients.
Regarding your vesit to your cardiologists, if you feel better now after the stents, it's great. You just need to comply his advice and not to worry alot. Yes do ask if you have any problem or concerns. You can write down them with you and ask him on the day.
Hope I have answered your query. Please feel free to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I will be glad to answer your questions.
