MY 63 year old sister has been diagnosed with sjogrens.
Probably swollen tongue can be related to Sjogren's syndrome.
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Swollen tongue can be related to Sjogren's syndrome.
Other possible causes that can be related to swollen tongue can be vitamin B 12 deficiency, a food allergy of an inflammation of the tongue.
I would recommend the following examinations:
A complete blood count to detect an anemia
Vitamin B 12 level
Total Ig E level
Meanwhile, noninflammatory medications are needed to relieve the swelling.
I would recommend Naproxen 50 mg three tablets a day.
After the examinations you can consult me again for further evaluation and treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
