I cannot stick out my tongue to brush because the

I cannot stick out my tongue to brush because the left side will hurt if I do so, and my lower left jaw has been sore and hurts when I yawn. Dentist says teeth and bone OK. I don't have trigeminal neuralgia. Am very worried about this. Blood work is fine. I wear a night guard and have been a periodontal patient for many years. I have been on prolia for going on five years. Do you have any thoughts about what this could be?

Hi, I had a taste bud problem earlier last week and Sunday it turned into a hole. Like I could stick a toothpick in it. And it hurts very very bad. I have no idea what it is. At all. I don t smoke nor drink, I brush my teeth everyday. I have no idea where or how I could ve gotten it.

Hi. I just got my tongue pierced almost 6 weeks ago. It healed very well and not a lot of pain. It totally healed and I can do everything I could before. No pain or anything. But today, around lunch time, I noticed I couldn t stick my tongue out all the way. Throughout the day it has gotten worse. I can barely stick my tongue out passed my lips and I can normally lick my nose and chin. I flipped my tongue up and my lingual frenulum is very swollen. It s red and extremely swollen and has two tiny whitish dots. I freaked out and immediately brushed my teeth and rinsed my mouth with sea saltwater twice. It instantly felt better but I can still tell it s hurt. Is it an infection? Should I go see my doctor tomorrow? If it is an infection, can it spread to my brain? Thank you for your time.
